We will use social media effectively to connect with youth: JIH Gen Sec

January 20, 2014


New Delhi, 20 Jan 2014: “We have always been open and tried to be first to utilize any modern technique for spreading the teachings of Islam and our message across the country and globe. Though a bit late, we have now decided to use various social media platforms for the very purpose,” said Mr. Nusrat Ali, General Secretary, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind while addressing the concluding session of the daylong workshop on Social Media here at the headquarters of Jamaat Sunday evening (19 Jan).

The lively workshop attended by around 60 young people, mostly professionals in different fields but active on social networking sites, discussed significance and technicalities of major social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and WhatsApp .

When traders of hatred are using these platforms to spoil the minds why we shouldn’t use them to spread the messages of peace, communal harmony, brotherhood and humanity, said Mohammad Salim Engineer, Secretary, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, the brain behind the initiative, in his opening remarks while inaugurating the workshop earlier in the day.

Three groups of participants worked separately to formulate suggestions for content generation, strategies and technical aspects. The participants were also made aware of the legalities involved in use of social media.

The participants submitted their suggestions and proposals regarding mechanism to generate contents, upload on various social media platforms and spread them. After a formal discussion later, Jamaat will give a final shape to the mechanism. A formal network of like-minded people throughout the globe would be created.

    Good Initiative. But like with anyother tool, the internet is also like a sharp knife and to be used very carefully.
    People who start to use it without really understanding the dangers of using it may fall into the trap of Shaitan. What are the measures that you are going to take to avoid such things.
    If you encourage a moderate common muslim to spread good things… yes he will do it but eventually… he may fall into the easy traps. Whats the prevention mechanisam that you are adivising to your people to be safe?
