Leading Indian Muslim organization Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind concluded the two day World Peace Conference at Deoband Saturday. Organized by the Sheikhul-Hind Educational Charitable Trust, the two day Conference is India's first initiative to establish a positive dialogue about world peace.

Day 2 of the conference was presided by Mufti Abdul Rahman of Bangladesh and saw the presence of Mufti Mohammad Rizwee (Sri Lanka), Maulana Fazlur Rahman - AmirJamiat Ulama-e-Islam (Pakistan) and Mufti Noor Mohammad (Burma) as guests of honour.

The conference concluded on deliberating a strong stance against terrorism across the world.
International scholars unanimously gave their support to a fatwa against terrorism in conclusion to the World Peace Conference.

The fatwa declares Islam's vision to end terrorism with a message of global peace, and is a significant step towards promoting Islam's belief that terrorism should be eradicated.

"In 2008, 6000 Ulemas and Muftis had come together to sign the fatwa against terrorism issued by Darul Uloom Deoband. After receiving international consensus for disassociating the image of terror from the peaceful identity of Islam, over 200 Ulemas from the UK, Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, The Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have added their support to the fatwa", prominent Muslim scholar and politician Mahmood A Madani, General Secretary, Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind said while addressing the conference.

"The conference therefore marks an international declaration to establish and maintain peace and harmony", he said.

The decisions made after extensive deliberation at the two day event will be announced at Aman Ka Paigaam: Message of Peace, at Ramlila Maidan (New Delhi) on 15 December 2013.

The event will be attended by 1,00,000 Muslims from all walks of life and will see them take a pledge of peace.

The World Peace Conference seeks to highlight the role and duties of the Ulama, in the larger context of establishing national peace and harmonious relations with the community, with an Islamic perspective to address issues like communal conflict between religions and various Muslim theological groups, and social evils like sexual exploitation, alcoholism, and drugs.

Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind is among India's leading Islamic organizations in India. Founded in 1919 by leading Muslim scholars, the organisation's network spans across India. Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind works to promote a nationalistic philosophy, secularism and Muslim welfare
