Kashmir is called as the abode of saints and we should not ignore their immense contribution in spreading Islam and promotion and advancement of sectors including healthcare, skill development and preservation of environment,” Prof. Mehraj ud Din Mir said while presiding over a special lecture “Islamic Culture in Kashmir” delivered by Kashmir Society Chairman, Farooq Ahmad Renzu Shah at Nowgam-II academic block of the varsity here. The lecture was organised by the Directorate of Students Welfare.
CUK Vice-Chancellor said the crime graph in Kashmir is at the lowest ebb as the people are still following the footsteps and teachings of these great saints. Commenting on the stereotyping of Muslims across the world and the recent incidents wherein Muslim families were de-boarded from aircrafts in few countries after “threat perception,” Prof. Mehraj ud Din said that Muslims are viewed with suspicion across the globe and it was high time for the intellectuals to inform and educate the people about the true meaning of Islam, which is peace, love, amity and brotherhood.
He said the Muslims can answer any query from the teachings of Quran and Sunnah.
The special lecture was followed by question-answer session.
