Never did he ask his listeners to follow him. He asked the Muslims to be true Muslims and the Hindus to be true Hindus.

SEMINAR 

Islamic Peace Perspectives and Role of Madrassas

Saturday, February 21, 2009 (6:00 PM)Followed by DinnerPlace: Sheraton National Hotel, Eisenhower Room,900 South Orme St, Arlington, VA 22204 Religions are committed to working for justice and peace, and have long-standing and well-established structures or processes for doing so. They may also have religion-specific approaches to conflict resolution, such as guidelines for resolving conflict or rituals for reconciling relationships that have potential application across religious boundaries. Interfaith Dialogue between conflicted groups can mobilize these and other religious elements in the service of increasing mutual tolerance—a process that begins with the ability to interact without fear or aggression, and progresses, through empathy and understanding, to mutual respect. Promoting a true dialogue among religions is most important instrument that we can use to build bridges of peace and hope “Together – no matter what our religious affiliations are “we can work towards our common goals with love, compassion, humility and vision – and bring about real change.”  

We also believe that mutual tolerance is essential for conflict prevention and resolution and religious leaders can make unique contribution to the common cause of creative co-existence. During this seminar there will be a special presentation presentation on Religious Seminaries “Madrassas” in Pakistan and their Role
