Let’s Come Together to Solve Muslim Problems: symposium

November 12, 2012

New Delhi, Nov 11: A symposium on “The Problems of Indian Muslims and Their Solution” was part of the daylong conference of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Delhi and Haryana held here today. It discussed the various problems Muslims in India have been facing. The problems discussed included implicating Muslim youth in the name of counter terrorism, safeguarding Islamic identity in the plural society and educational backwardness.

“These problems are being created in a planned manner to sidetrack Muslims so that they might not grow and play their role in the reconstruction of country on healthy grounds,” alleged Dr. Er. Muhammad Salim, Secretary Jamaat-e-Islami Hind while presiding over the symposium.

“All our problems, whether they are our own or created by our enemies or governments, cannot be solved unless we develop the consciousness of being the community to strive for all human beings and work together to solve all these problems,” Er. Salim suggested.

“Our ancestors have sacrificed their lives for the independence of the country; hence we have never been behind others and we should not beg for something. Neither Islam nor democracy teaches us to feel depressed and beg for some mercy,” he asserted.

Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi, Secretary-General Jamiat Ahl-e-Hadees; Dr. Sayeeduddin of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind; Dr. Abidullah Ghazi from Chicago, and Dr. Abrar Ahmad Islahi, Editor Muslim World Journal participated in the symposium while Mr. Parwaz Rehmani, Editor-in-Chief of Dawat Sehroza compeered the discussion.

“The need is to change our aptitude that we are being oppressed. We have to develop positive thinking,” said Dr. Abidullah Ghazi.

Dr. Abrar Ahmad Islahi suggested that we should devise a syllabus that can create good, pro-active citizens who can contribute to the reconstruction of society.

Dr. Sayeeduddin suggested that Muslim leaders should come together to solve their problems. Other speakers also shared the view.

    I do not think the all the problems of Islam are going to be addressed in a day conference and resolved to any degree of saitisfaction. A serious reflection on the hisory of Islam and of the errors made such as the Armenian genocide need to be truthfully recognised and accunted for. Until then, Islam will continue to be regarded as that backward Arabic cult.
