Alleviate sense of fear among Muslims over riots: Sufi
A charter of demands which were unveiled during a World Sufi Forum that was organised by the All India Ulama & Mashaikh Board (AIUMB) has asked the Govt. to alleviate the sense of fear among the Muslims over the riots & has urged the PM Narendra Modi to rectify the historical blunders in India which has brought in the extremist ideologies.
There is a sense of fear among Muslims due to riots. The government must alleviate this fear & Union Home Ministry should spell out what steps have been taken with regard to all small and big communal incidents & riots which have taken place so far in distinct parts of the country as said by the AIUMB in the 25 point charter that was released on concluding day of the event at a packed Ramlila Maidan on Sunday.
While speaking at the venue, the AIUMB founder president Syed Muhammad Ashraf said that they are hopeful that the government will pay heed to their requests & keep in mind the interests of the Indian Muslims. Over the last few decades, there have been concerted efforts in order to weaken the Sufism in India & replace that with an extremist & radical ideology.
The recent phenomenon is dangerous not just for the Muslim community but also for the country itself. He said that they now request the honourable Prime Minister to rectify the historical blunders & kindly meet the needs of millions of Sufi followers in India. The charter called for establishing a central Sufi centre in Delhi & in all the other capital cities. It has also demanded the establishment of a Khwaja Garib Nawaz University, creation of “Sufi Corridors”, a review of the Waqf Amendment Bill & a decision to set up a national corporation for the development of Waqf properties.
