World Sufi meet today
New Delhi will witness the world Sufi meet today inaugurated by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, attended by more than 200 Indian and International delegates, including Sufi Shuyukh, spiritual leaders, scholars, academicians and masters of Sufism at the national and international level.
It is a four-day event hosted by All India Ulama and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB), the pinnacle of all the sufi dargahs in India.
The agenda of the meet is to debate on how sufism can directly or indirectly help in eradicating terrorism globally or control it to an extent at the most. Apart from the main discussion on terrorism the meet would discuss how to protect the muslim community from sectarian conflict, discrimination or division.
But unfortunately for the feminine sect of the community, the role of women in Islam would only be debated on for the International conference and not at the global meet at Delhi.
The sufi conference would end with a strong and straight declaration against ‘extremism’ and ‘Wahabism’ on day fourth of the meet to be held at Ramlila Maidan.
