Jamiat's Aman & Ekta Sammelan urges united fight against communalism

October 28, 2017

Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind’s multi-religious conference “ Aman & Ekta Sammelan” vows to establish peace, work for national integration. The Sammelan here on Sunday vowed to establish peace and communal harmony in the country and adopted a declaration underlining that any kind of violence against innocent persons is anti-Islamic, anti India and anti humanity.


The conference named “Aman and Ekta Sammelan” saw participation from top religious leaders of various faiths and sects besides several thousand Islamic clerics from across the country.


The conference presided over by JUH President Maulana Syed Mohammed Usman Mansoorpuri, had Swami Chidanand Saraswati of Parmarth Niketan Ashram Rishikesh as the chief guest and was addressed by Akal Takht Amritsar Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, Jain guru Acharya Lokesh Muni, head of Drikung Kagyu order of Tibetan Buddhism Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, Chinmiya Mission Chennai leader Swami Mitranand, Sadguru Brahmeshanand Acharya, Gandhian Shankar Sanyal and Pandit N.K. Sharma, President, Universal Association for Spiritual Awareness.
 
Addressing the conference, JUH General Secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani said that majority of Indians are peace loving and stressed that Islam is the religion of dialogue with no place for violence.“The majority of Indian people are peace-loving. Peace is in India’s DNA. We do have differences with each other, but we cannot be enemies,” Madani said.
 
Giani Gurbachan Singh said that all religious texts and founders of religions have stressed on peace and urged people of different faiths to live like a family. He said that India equally belongs to people of all faiths and sects and to any single community or faith.“Faiths may be different but they all lead to one ultimate truth much like the purpose of water is to quench thirst no matter if it is called pani, aab or water,” Singh said, Swami Chidanand Saraswati said that it is wrong to blame Islam for the wrongdoings of a few people and urged the people to work unitedly to alleviate poverty from India and to preserve its environment as he presented a plant to the JUH Presidnet.


“Today’s conference has been organised to bridge the gulfs and erase the differences. We have to spread the message of Islam which is that of peace,” Saraswati said.


Acharya Lokesh Muni said that differences of opinion are bound to be there in any society but there must not be any bitterness or enmity with each other due to these differences.


“Violence begets violence. Violence is not solution to anything. We can resolve every issue through discussion,” Muni said.


Rinpoche said that all religions teach love, compassion and peace and that what people should practice.


The Declaration adopted at and ratified by the conference said: “In this crucial time...no longre shall words and acts of hatred and division be tolerated. We pledge to unify across all sects, faiths, castes and creeds to lend our hands and hearts for a new era dedicated to greener and more harmonious future, in which all are included, none is excluded and fellowship reigns true.”

 

Declaration 
Ratified by Aman & Ekta Sammelan
Organised by Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind
on Sunday, 29th October, 2017
at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New Delhi

 

1. This Sammelan reiterates that Islam is the religion of peace and harmony and is a boon for the whole of humanity. Varied misconceptions and falsehoods tainting Islam with terrorism, radicalism and gender injustice are being spread by forces inimical to the eternal truths of our Islamic faith and heritage. We resolve therefore that it is our prime duty to dispel such misgivings and present the true face of Islam to the world through acts that promote mutual-understanding and harmonious actions for a happier, healthier and more sustainable future for the benefit of everyone, everywhere.


2. Islam preaches that the real Jihad means protecting all of humanity against bloodshed and establishing peace. In this spirit, weresolve to strongly condemn terrorism in all its forms.


3. We hereinalso declare that violence of any kind against innocent women, children and men—in word or in action—is anti-India, anti-human and anti-Islam. We condemn it, and undertake that we will perform our roles to stopviolence, hatred, radicalism and divisiveacts wherever we may see it.

 

4. The dream of strong, prosperous and united Indiacan be made reality through the unity of all sects and faiths, working side-by-side for a clean, green and prosperous future for everybody, everywhere. Therefore, we pledge to come together and stay together for a unified campaign to restore our polluted and shrinking water bodies, as well as our forests, cities and villages through the plantation of trees, the advancement of water-saving farming and living, the promotion of healthy water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and other integrated actions for the health and well-being of all. 

 

5. We also call upon all of Islam, as well as all of our world’s faiths and social organizations to come together in fellowship towards eradicating crimes, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual exploitation, female foeticide and other harmful and immoral practices.


6. We moreover call for the upliftment of the downtrodden, women, scheduled classes and minority populations through the provision of equal opportunities and social justice for all.


7. In this crucial time in history, when our natural resources are depleting, populations and temperatures are rising and threats of violence and natural disasters are on the increase, no longer shall words and acts of hatred and division be tolerated. We instead pledge to unify across all sects, faiths, castes and creeds to lend our hands and our hearts for a new era dedicated to greener and more harmonious future, in which all are included, none are excluded, and fellowship reigns true.
