A delegation of Islamic scholars from Malaysia, currently visiting Jammu and Kashmir, Saturday called on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and discussed about avenues for collaboration in education and tourism.
The delegation, led by ‘Pertubuhan Rahmatan Lil Aalmin’ organisation founder Sheikh Ismail Bin Kassim, exchanged views on the contemporary Islamic world and new challenges, besides avenues for collaboration in education and tourism, said an official spokesman.
He said the purpose of the visit of the delegation is to promote, through education, the values of harmony, welfare, compassion and love for human beings which are the foundation of a just society and the real values of Islam, and also to highlight the close relationship between Malaysia and India.
The delegation, comprising Sheikh Muhammad Favzi Bin Kassim, Khadijah Md Jadi, Harish ManHakim, Zainurah Abdul Karim, Hafiza Ali and Abdul Kader Chand Pasha, has already visited Jammu and Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri, said the spokesman.
The Chief Minister wished that the delegation carried forward the true message of Islam, which is peace, and called for promotion of such interactions that bring to the fore the values and virtues of Islam to help restore peace in our hearts, he said, adding that the meeting ended with a prayer for peace and harmony in Jammu and Kashmir.
