In the backdrop of continued human rights violations by jihadist forces across the world, the All India Ulama and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB) will be organising the first World Sufi Forum in the capital from March 17th till 20th, 2016. The four-day event will involve discussions by leading global Sufi scholars, academicians, social workers on various important issues pertaining to Islam.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be speaking at the event, which will witness more than 200 international dignitaries from 20 countries.

The event is focused on finding constructive ways to spread the Islamic message of peace and tolerance as counterpoint to the ever rising global violent extremism. AIUMB, the event organiser, is India’s apex body for sufi shrines and for Muslim religious leaders such as Ulama, Imams and Muftis.

Hazrat Syed Muhammad Ashraf, founder-president, AIUMB said, “We believe it is high time for us to create a platform to seriously ponder over the radical interpretations of Islam by terror groups for political gains. The spread of terror and tyranny by jihadist forces in Syria and other parts of the world has damaged the image of Islam more than ever before. However we are of the belief that Indian Muslims can provide a real alternative to all the bloodshed being spilled across the world in the name of Islam by promoting their rich history of Sufism.”

“Sufism stands for Peace, Tolerance and Unconditional Love and we aim to promote these virtues of Islam through our World Sufi Forum event. Through World Sufi Forum we intend to make India the global centre for moderate ideology in Islam,” added Ashraf.

        This event sponsored by Mr. Modi government.This event is organized not for the purpose of against terrorism.It is organized for the purpose of creating rift among the different Sect. and to dividend the gap.Second purpose of it is to take them in BJP fold for voting gain.,

            Bhakti is only one way. You can attain peace even if you dont believe in god. Also lot of people believe god is a virtue and not a person. Therefore i do not understand why you cannot believe that a person can become god if he holds steadfast to a divine virtue, for eg, love, compion, Honesty, sacrifice etc.

              how much Modi paid you guys.never heard of this board before. ALL INDIA MUSLIM PERSONAL BOARD declined to meet Modi,now to take revenge and make them irrelevant,this is the 3rd alternative try by Modi. even this effort will go in vain. the real muslim does not believe in shrine culture as it is a business center where worshippers are looted in the name of religion.
