Religious freedom is a fundamental human right – ISCON 2017

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

The 6th two-day Islamic Students Conference (ISCON) organized by Kuwait Kerala Islahi Center (KKIC) came to a conclusion on Friday, Dec 1, 2017.

He stressed on the importance of freedom of religion and the need for the society to stand together in order to preserve it, as it is a fundamental human right. He condemned the extremist fringe organizations “that are misrepresenting the real principles of Islam and attempts by vested interests to marginalize the Muslim community.” He exhorted Muslims to adhere to the teachings of Islam and thereby present the faith in its true light to the world.

Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Awqaf, Sheikh Khalid Bu Ghais inaugurated the seminar. KKIC President, PN Abdul Lateef Madani, hosted the event.

Tarek Sami Sultan Al Essa, Chairman of Ihya U Thuras Islamiya, also addressed the gathering. The campaign aimed at expanding the subscriber base of KKIC’s weekly magazine, Nerpadam, was inaugurated by Jaliyath representative, Mohammed Ali.

The certificates for students graduating from the five religious schools (Madrasas) under KKIC and the prizes for the toppers were handed out during the seminar. The book exhibition jointly organized by Wisdom Roots and KKIC was also held during the 2-day event.

Sherif (KIG), Abdul Aziz Valiyakath (KMCC) and Sadiq Ali (MES) shared their thoughts about the event representing their organizations. AM Abdul Samad, KC Abdul Lateef and Emitiyas NM were in charge of the presidium. Zakir KA gave the welcome address and CP Abdul Aziz rendered the vote of thanks.
