New Delhi, 10 June 2019: The President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), Syed Sadatullah Hussaini called upon religious leaders of all faiths to unite and save the country from the grave challenges it is confronted with. Addressing the Jamaat’s impressive Eid Get-together program organized at India International Center in New Delhi, the JIH President said: “The uniqueness of our country is the unity and brotherhood that exists despite such huge diversity in religions, language, culture and ideologies. However, this unity is under danger as some forces are trying to create divisions within society. India is now confronted with three major challenges. The first challenge is that some anti-social and rogue elements have started taking law in their hands and are wrecking violence on innocent citizens in the name of cow-vigilantism etc. The second challenge is the growing polarization between religious communities that is leading to communal tension and feeling of insecurity and unease. The third challenge for India is the growing inequality among the rich and the poor and the inability of the government to lift large sections of its citizens from poverty and providing them improved quality of life. Jamaat-e-Islami Hind calls upon religious leaders of all faiths, social activists, intellectuals, civil society members and the youth of the country to unitedly confront these grave challenges. The Jamaat is ready to provide all assistance and cooperation in this regards’’.
The Eid Get-together programme was attended by a galaxy of dignitaries including Muchkund Dubey, Mani Shankar Aiyar, Atul Kumar Anjan, Swami Agnivesh, Maulana Mehmood Madani, Kamal Farooqui, Navaid Hamid, Father M D Thomas, Goswami Sushilji Maharaj, Dilip Pandey, Brahma Kumari Sister Manju, Chandrashekhar (Bhim Army) and other social activists, faith leaders, members of civil society and foreign diplomats. Jamaat-e-Islami Hind regularly organises such Eid Get-together programs throughout the country at local, city and state level to promote fraternity, mutual trust and a climate of dialogue and understanding. The Jamaat strives to create a value based society and establish peace, harmony and justice in all domains of individual and collective life. JIH Vice President Mohammed Salim Engineer proposed the vote of thanks while the programme was conducted by Mohammed Iqbal Mulla.
