Madhyamam: A Muslim media success story

New Delhi: The Jama Masjid United Forum (JMUF) is organising an international conference against terrorism later this month, with the aim to dispel notions linking terrorism to Islam.


The announcement about the conference was made by JMUF president Syed Yahya Bukhari and Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal at a function organised here to emphasise the "right understanding of Islam" amongst the general public.

"With the increasing scourge of terrorism, it is high time we all think often of the means to try and eradicate the menace of terrorism from the face of the earth," Sibal said.


JMUF, an NGO set up by the 12th Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Maulana Syed Abdulla Bukhari in 2007, said that the conference - second of its kind - would be held Oct 27 at the Oberoi Hotel and is likely to be attended by national leaders, religious heads and luminaries from across the globe.


"Jama Masjid-Delhi has historically remained central to the Muslim polity in India. Indian Muslims look up to it for guidance in matters of socio-political importance as well as in matters that concern the Ummah (the Muslim community) as a whole. Therefore, for quite some time, Jama Masjid-Delhi, has been contemplating an initiative to understand and approach the problem in a wider context beyond merely condemning it," Bukhari said.


He added that there was a need to spread awareness of the fact that Islam and terrorism are irreconcilable and that Islam is opposed to the concept of terrorism.
