Gobindapuri maulana urges authorities to maintain communal harmony

Silchar, November 2: Islam lays stress on amity, brotherhood and abjuring violence of all sorts. In this turbulent world torn apart by animosity among the different communities, the best way to serve humanity is by committing oneself to the ideals of Islam where there is no place for violence. It is a religion of peace and harmony. These were among the views expressed by Maulana Ahmed Syeed Gobindapuri, in a press-meet held recently at his residence after his arrival from Haj pilgrimage. The Maulana said during the Haj, he prayed for the progress, welfare and development of the country and its people. He also prayed for world peace. Speaking on the issue of ‘Beef controversy’, Gobindapuri said that a certain section of the politicians are trying to create communal disturbances for their vested interests. He urged upon the people to maintain peace and communal harmony. He said that people can find a solution to the issue only through meaningful dialogues and discussions.
He further said that Barak Valley is the ‘island of peace’ and the authorities concerned should ensure that no untoward incidents take place in the valley. He further informed that he met with Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi, and impressed upon him to take steps to maintain law and order in the state. Gobindapuri further said that the state government should provide Rs.20 lakh each as compensation to the bereaved family members of Badal Saotal and Sajid Ahmed Barbhuiya. Gobindapuri also informed Tarun Gogoi of the issues being faced by Haj pilgrims of the state and urged upon him to take appropriate steps regarding it. Maulana Ahmed Syeed Gobindapuri also expressed concern at the fact that youths of the Muslim community are going astray. He asked for restraint and austerity on their part and called for holding prayers according to the principles of Islam everyday instead of on the occasions of holy festivals only.
