Silence of Good People responsible for Volatile atmosphere in the country

The one who doesn’t want peace cannot be a Muslim, Islam is the religion of Peace and Humanity. Unfortunately it has been misrepresented and a lot of misunderstandings have been created about it. These were the words expressed by Dr. Mohammed Habeeb ur Rahman, Member, JIH Gulbarga, while presiding over an Inaugural Function of the Nationwide Campaign on “Peace & Humnaity” at Hidayath center on Sunday the 21st August, 2016. He called upon the importance of inter faith understanding and that one should follow his own religion as per its teaching. One cannot find peace without following the path of religion.

Mr Zakir Hussain, while delivering the inaugural address, explained about the raising trend of insecurity among the different section of the society due the creation of an atmosphere of hatredness by certain self interested people in the country. Jamaat e Islami Hind feels that such trend is not in the interest of the development of the country and it should be reversed. Therefore he said, it has launched a Nationwide Campaign on “Peace & Humanity” from today the 21st August 2016 to 4th September 2016. Through the campaign, it is planned to reach out to people at the grass root level to convey the true message of brotherhood.

Islam preaches peace while Muslim practices peace. They want peace in every sphere of life. These were the words expressed by Molana Nazeer Ahmed Hashmi, President Safa Bait-ul-mal, Gulbarga. He said Quran preaches that the killing of an innocent person is like killing of a whole of humanity and saving a person life is like saving the whole of humanity.

Moulana Javid Aala Qasmi, Khateeb & Imam, Masjid e Mahebaus, Super Market, Gulbarga while addressing the gathering, said the world is in dire need of peace and everyone is in search of peace. Every effort is made from local to international level to find ways for peace. But they are unable to find it. Reason he said, was that we are finding all possible ways without looking for the divine guidance for establishing peace. He said Muslims had a great responsibility of preaching and putting forward the efforts to establish peace in the lives of the people as well as in the society, as they have the divine guidance in its original form in the form of Quran. Unfortunately, he said the Muslims have forgotten their duty, and hence the world is deprived of peace.

Speaking on the occasion Dr Prabhu Khanapure, a retired professor and a progressive writer, said without removing blind beliefs and un-touchability from the society, it cannot make progress. For this effort should be made at every home to teach values to the new generation. It is the duty of parents and the teachers to inculcate values in the children, and then only we can expect peace, humanity in the society.

Mr Benjamin Desouza, of Inter Religious Forum for Peace & Humanity from Bhalki, while addressing the gathering referring the booklet of the Campaign said that the evil is spreading in the society not because of bad people but it is because of silence of good people. He expressed the need for establishment of inter religious peace committees and forums for proper understandings between different faiths. He reviewed the experience of such forums in Bhalki and Gulbarga as well.

The program started with the Recitation of verses from Holy Quran by Moualan Mohammed Imran Baqavi, Mr Baba Saheb Hundekar read its Kannada translation. The program was anchored by Mr Fateh Ali. Mr Mohammed Yousuf Khan, Dist Organizer, JIH Gulbarga was present on the podium. People from different faiths attended the program.

Press Conference on Nationwide Campaign on "Peace & Humanity"

A Press Conference was organized at Press Club of Kalaburagi on 20th August, 2016 on the eve of the nationwide Campaign on "Peace & Humanity" Addressed by Jb Mohmammed Ziaullah, Joint Convener of the Campaign in Kalaburgi expressed concern over the polluting communal situation in the country. It is time, he said the patriotic thinkers of the country to come forward to tackle this menace. He also explained in detail about the activities to be undertaken in the District during the campaign.

Jb Zakir HUssain, President, JIH Gulbarga & Convener of the Camopaign, Jb Mohammed Yousuf Khan, Dist Organizer, JIH Gulbarga and Dr Mohammed Habeeb ur Rahman, Member, JIH Gulbarga were present.

The nation is still in celebrative mood of our independence.  Usually all sections of the society come together on this occasion and remember the great souls who sacrificed their lives to make the country free. However, the spirit of togetherness which our elders possessed is shrinking these days. The beauty of unity in diversity is waning. Intolerance prejudices and violence is raising its ugly head. Propaganda, bashing, victimization and lynching are becoming order of the day.
As per the Home Ministry data tabled in the Lok Sabha, there has been a 17% rise in communal riots last year (2015) and 751 cases have been recorded in a single year alone. The data also shows that there is a marked escalation of such cases during elections. Accordingly, at the national level, most such cases were registered in 2013 (823 cases). The fire of communal hatred ignited for political motives is burning away the strong social fabric and destroying age-old societal norms and values of tolerance and brotherhood in our country.

Phenomenal change
Hitherto, communal riots were an urban phenomenon as all communal riots were either limited to the vicinity of cities or they first erupted in urban areas then spreading to the adjoining villages. After the riots when peace was restored people used to live together in harmony again. But now tension is no longer being limited to a temporary or stray incident; instead such universal, political, historical and ideological issues are being raked up that have far-reaching and long lasting impact. These misunderstandings cannot be easily done away with and create a permanent rift between the communities.

Socio-economic impact
A restless and socially divided society is never considered suitable for economic growth. If this disease becomes widespread, then foreign investments cease to flow in and even the country’s own investors begin to seek other investment opportunities abroad. Whatever economic activity continues is rendered profitless, businesses and industries suffer losses leading to economic depression, poverty and unemployment.

The way out
The first step in improving the situation is that we countrymen realize the gravity of the situation. Of course, the entire nation or the entire climate is not intolerant. However, if prompt notice is not taken, the pace at which the situation is worsening shows that the day is not far off when we would no longer deserve to feel proud of our claimed tolerance. Irrespective of our religious and political affiliation or inclination, we need to unite together to work against communalism on a broad social level.
In order to establish communal harmony, it is also required that influential leaders of all communities come forward. The village heads, intellectuals, journalists, social activists- they all need to understand the importance of this issue and give it its rightful place. Since all this is being done in the name of religion and by misusing it, religious leaders, scholars and spiritual leaders should also shoulder this responsibility.

Sincere consistent efforts
The most important thing in this regard is to establish a sincere, wide and continuous network of mutual communication at all possible levels between Hindu, Muslim and other religious and cultural groups. This system should be so strong and effective that it can readily counter and rectify false information and rumours spread via media, social media, and contain their spread. No matter what happens outside the country, there should be no danger to the social fabric at the locality, colony, apartment or village level.
We also want that media, social media and educational syllabus etc. should be under the scanner of our citizens and civil society. Irrespective of whoever is trying to poison the peaceful environment of the country, to whichever religion or sect he may belong, no matter how influential or politically connected he may be, the law should take strict notice of this and for this the society should help the government and also pressurize the government. We should counsel our youth, clear their minds and teach them to use social media responsibly.

Societal strength
The entire society should come together to oppose the tendency of taking the law in one’s own hands and stop it with all its might. Our country has proper laws and law enforcement agencies to handle them. The law should be allowed to take its own course and responsible citizens should assist in law enforcement. The best way to allow law to take its own course is to prevent mobs from taking the law in their hands. No group, political leader, journalist, newspaper or TV channel should be allowed to don the hat of the police, the judiciary and the hangman. We reiterate that the rule of law can be upheld only by the common and united efforts of all members of society.

In response to the currently prevailing alarming situation, it has been decided to launch a nation-wide campaign to convey the message of peace and humanity to all countrymen. Accordingly, the ‘Peace and Humanity Campaign’ from 21st August to 4th September 2016 is being observed. This is by no means a traditional awareness campaign; rather its goal is to bring about some firm and perceptible changes in society. While the objective of this campaign is also to appeal to the conscience of the country and rouse it, but beyond that our goal is to ensure the establishment of a string of institutions right from the community level to the local level and the promotion of necessary practices to help consistently counter this menace of communal hatred.
