New Delhi/Aligarh: The Centre for Promotion of Educational & Cultural Advancement of Muslims (CPECAMI), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Aligarh, will hold its First Global Islamic Reconciliation Summit at the university campus on April 3-4, 2017.
“As a follow-up of our two earlier conferences on “The Intellectual Crisis of the Muslim Ummah: Rethinking Traditional Solutions” and “Rebuilding the House of Islam”, this year’s conference theme “Muslim Ummah: The Road Ahead” assumes a very special significance, especially in the backdrop of the ongoing rampage and depopulation of the Muslim World where more than four million people have already perished during the last three decades of wars and internecine conflicts,” said Rashid Shaz, Professor & Director, Centre for Promotion of Educational & Cultural Advancement of Muslims, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh.
“The idea to hold a RECONCILIATION SUMMIT should be seen as a future initiative, dragged backward to instill in us a sense of dire hurry and alarming urgency,” added Mr. Shaz, who is also ISESCO Goodwill Ambassador.
“The two-day event is mainly aimed at mending the broken fabric of Islam. It will also showcase a new generation of Muslim Futurists; our bridge graduates who have successfully shed their false sectarian identities and now proudly wear the color of God, sibghatullah –ومن احسن من اللہ صبغۃ. The program – dedicated to restoring confidence among the Muslims and their faith allies (ahle-kitab and shibh ahle-kitab) – will address some of the major policy issues. These include (i.) Muslims & their Faith Allies in 2030: A Future Roadmap; (ii.) The Idea of a New Aligarh: Spearheading the Second Aligarh Movement; (iii.) The Future of Science Education in Madaris: Reviving the Qurtaba Model; (iv.) Muslim Personal Law: What Shall We Do Now?; and (v.) Reconciliation Summit: Major Policy Announcements.
