New Delhi: A group of Muslim religious leaders came together to chalk out strategies to empower Muslim youths through education and leadership programmes here on Sunday.
They asked the youths of the community to go for higher education and develop skills to face life’s challenges. “The Muslim community is facing huge challenges, and it is the duty of our youths to get higher education to face the challenges,” said Mufti Mohammad Mukarram Ahmad, Shahi Imam of the 17th-century Fatehpuri Masjid in Old Delhi.
“We have to show the world through our words and deeds that we are a progressive, educated and peaceful community and we are capable enough to lead the nation,” he said.
He was addressing a conference organised by Federation of Islamic Youth Organisations (FIYO) in the national capital.
In his concluding remarks, FIYO Convener Abidur Rahman urged the Muslim youths to work together against illiteracy and other social evils.
