GUWAHATI, Nov 20 � A day-long convention organized by the State chapter of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind today sent out a strong message to those resorting to anti-national activities and asserted that such forces should be identified and brought to book irrespective of caste, creed or religion.
The all India general secretary of the organisation Maulana Mahmood Asad Madani said that it was unfortunate to witness a growing trend among certain groups to brand Madrassas as hub of terror activities.
The State chapter of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind observes November 20 as anti-terrorism day.
Addressing the media, Madani said that Madrassas have been playing an important role in propagating values of humanity and will continue to do so to bring universal peace and brotherhood.
�The investigating agencies should first gather enough evidences before making it public. In case of any wrongdoings, we will help the agencies in acting against the evil forces,� Madani said.
During the convention organized at the ITA complex Machkhowa, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt said that there is a growing tendency among certain sections to jump into conclusions linking them to Muslim groups, which is unfortunate.
Noted scholar Dr Hiren Gohain also spoke on the emerging challenges and said that no one should be harassed in the name of containing terror.
A number of other prominent leaders also spoke on the occasion.
