Tajikistan's envoy urges people of J-K to focus on Sufi culture for peace
Srinagar, July 3 (ANI): Tajikistan Ambassador to India, Syed Baig, has urged the people of Jammu and Kashmir to convert to Sufism and propagate peace and brotherhood.
Attending an International Sufi Conference here on Saturday, Baig said the people of the Kashmir Valley should realise the need and importance of adopting ideologies of Sufism to better their lives.
"People of Kashmir should pay attention to the culture in Sufi more because it gives peace to their mind and is peaceful to the society. The people of Kashmir should know about their ancestors more and more. It gives them an opportunity to become more educated," he said.
The 40-day conference is being organised by the Kashmir Sufism Society
The organisers of the conference said that the objective is to spread the message of peace and brotherhood, which Sufi saints always preached.
Sufi scholars from across the globe have converged at Srinagar to attend the conference.
Moulana Noori Naquashbandi, a Sufi scholar, said that the Sufi culture would help in maintaining peace in the Kashmir Valley, which has reeled under violence last year.
"If such conferences are being held, then the whole atmosphere of Kashmir and Kashmiri Society would change into the Islamic one. And under Sufism it would move towards peace and security. And only Sufism can rid human beings from their violent nature," he said.
The scholars would present their papers on Sufism during the conference and would visit the shrines of Sufi saints across the Valley. (ANI)
