Sunday March 2, 2014 0:19 AM, News Network

The growing concern on extremism and terrorism prompted the Markazi Jamiat Ahle-e-Hadees Hind (MJAH) to take proactive steps aimed at infusing the ethos of moderation not only in thinking but also in practice in every sphere of life.

At the two-day conference, "Moderation: Only guarantor of world peace and success of mankind" here today at Ramlila Ground in the Capital, India's leading reformative organization has gave a call to champions of humanity to join together to defeat the forces of extremism.

In his inaugural remark on the 32nd All India Ahle-e-Hadees Hind conference, MAJH secretary general, Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi Salfi, said the world in general and India in particular needs "balance" approach to address all contentious issues.

From boardroom to battlefield, Islam has called for moderate approach, said Mr Salfi.

He added, "Islam does not talk peace only in theoretical term but has also given concrete methodologies to obtain it"

He refuted the charges that the Muslims are not accommodative towards their non-Muslim brothers.

He added that Islam has asked for keeping a moderate stand in dealing with other religious groups.

"Neither Muslims were asked to dissolve their religious identity amongst gatherings of the idolaters and pantheists nor they were encouraged to take on the latter groups with tough hand", he said.

"The Glorious Quran on various occasions urged the believers to take moderate approach", he said.

Without naming any group, he said that the different interpretations in Islam did not encourage Muslims to stand divided among different sects.

He invoked the basic Islamic injunction on the unity of Ummah calling for all Muslim groups to come together on one platform.

He also dealt upon woman issues in detail and said that the Creator (Allah) has made male and female both, so His guidelines are the final for all to follow in this regard.

"Islam neither gives total freedom to women nor caged them in house", he said.

He, however, admitted that on ground women were denied of their rights enshrined in Islam. He reminded the role of the organization in the freedom struggle.

In his presidential address, Hafiz Mohammad Yahya Dehlavi, said 'moderate voice' is the need of the hour.

"When the war clouds hovering across the globe, there is a need for putting emphasis on moderate voice," he said.

He added that Islam asked for patience even at the time of adversities.

He said that Markazi Jamiat Ahle-e-Hadees Hind has played a pivotal role in bringing different groups on one platform during freedom struggle. Also the role of the organization throughout the 20th century cannot be ignored.

The two-day conference, which will conclude Sunday, would be addressed by the imam of Grand Mosque, Madina, Sheikh Abdul Mohsin Mohammad Al-Qasim who is world over known as harbinger of peace.

He will lead evening (Maghrib) and night (Isha) prayers at the Ramlila Ground.

Others who spoke on the occasion included, Suleman Salimullah Rahili, Dr Abdul Aziz Al-Qasiri, Zubair Ahmad Madani (Karnataka President), Maulana Khurshid Ahmad Madani (Madarsa Sirajul Uloom Jhanda Nagar), Ghulam Rasool Bhatt (President, Jammu and Kashmir) and Mufti Mohammad Rashid Qasmi from Darul Uloom Deoband.
