New Delhi, March 18, 2016 (BSS)
Incumbent imam of Maizbhandar Darbar Syed Saifuddin Ahmed Maizbhandari has sought interfaith unity in safeguarding humanity from onslaughts religious fanaticism as he represented Bangladesh in the World Sufi Forum, opened by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Thursday.

United we stand, divided we fall. If we love and live in harmony, we will establish peace. Peace is within us," he told the conference in the Indian capital while the four day event was organized by All India Ulama and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB), the apex body of Sufi Dargahs in India.

Ahmed sought interfaith unity with the aim to safeguard humanity from the onslaught of religious fanaticism joining hands with Sufis in the region and across the globe.

"Sufis believe in love tolerance and the well being of humanity... (on the other hand) extremist religious practices will never yield anything substantial, as they are fueled by rage and haterd, thus being strictly against the moral principles of Islam & Morality," he said.

He said the growing phenomenon of terrorism in the name of Islam calls for a rise of the Sufi message of peace & tranquility as Islam is a divine and spiritual religion.
Addressing the global assembly of Sufis, the Indian Premier described Islam as a "faith of peace" and Sufism as one of the greatest contribution adding that the ideals of Islam have always rejected the forces of terrorism and extremism and those who spread terror in the name religion are anti-religious.

"Of the 99 names of Allah, none stand for force and violence and the first two names denote compassionate and merciful. Allah is Rahman and Raheem... Those who spread terror in the name of religion are anti-religious," Modi told the ceremony at the Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi.

The event drew over 200 Indian and International delegates, spiritual leaders, scholars, academicians and masters of Sufism, under one roof.
