Ulema challenge Christian Missionaries for Inter-faith Dialogue


Srinagar, Nov 26: Kashmiri Ulema Sunday challenged Christian missionaries for inter-faith debate, in presence of an independent committee. The speakers also said that there was a need to monitor activities of schools to stop any unethical or irreligious activity which can spoil Kashmiri youth.
Addressing a day long seminar at SP Higher Secondary School here, the ulema stressed on the need to check work of the missionaries in Kashmir.
Renowned religious scholar Dr. Nazir Ahmad Zargar expressed concern over the suspected Christian missionary activities in the valley and accused the missionaries and their Pastors of luring youth through rewards and money for the conversion.
He also challenged Christian scholars to debate with the Islamic scholars in open.
Dr. Zargar stressed on strengthening of Bait-ul-Maal system in the valley.
“The missionaries are exploiting the poor and destitute people by alluring them money for conversion. We should take care of the poor and destitute through our Islamic financial system,” he said.
Blaming the present education system, Zargar claimed that the missionary schools were spoiling the youth with their false arguments and creating confusions in the minds of young people. He stressed the refreshing of curriculum syllabi in the schools and their systems.
He emphasized on the religious scholars to unite and perform their professional duties which the present situation demands. Besides others, Prof. Moulana Zahoor Ahmad Shah Al-Madni, Moulana Nisar Ahmad Bhat Al-Madni and Moulana Faheem Mohammad Ramzan were also present on the occasion.
