Salafi convention in Virajpet on April 27

Informing this at a press conference here on Thursday, the organisation’s District General Secretary K A Ahmed Ashim said the intention of the convention is to drive home the true messages of Islam.

“Though Islam is propagating peace, it has been subjected to an anti-propaganda. Those who want to live in a disturbed society are trying to defame Islam. This is happening in the global-level. Hence, the convention intends to give the real picture of Islam to the people,” he said.

“The Salafi organisation respects the Law of the Land. We have no separate flag. We do not disturb the public life by conducting processions and road blocks. We never raise meaningless slogans which spoil peace in the society. We do not support the Orthodox and we will not follow anti-religious activities to earn extra income. We welcome those who intend to understand the organisation with a closer view,” he said.

South Karnataka Salafi Movement’s office-bearer Ismail Shafi will inaugurate the convention at 10 am on April 27. The organisation’s central committee President Ahmed Ansar will preside. Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah, MLC T John, ‘Shakthi’ Editor G Rajendra, CPM District Secretary Dr Guruprasad, TMC Vice President B K Chandru, Standing Committee President Katti Poonacha, member S H Mainuddin will be the chief guests. Ummar Sharief from Bangalore and Mowlvi of Parappe Ashraf will deliver the keynote address.

Different sessions will be held from 12.30 pm to 6.30 pm. The valedictory will be held at 7 pm which will be presided by P K Mohammed Hanif of Suntikoppa. Kerala KNM Secretary Abdul Rehman Salafi will deliver the keynote address.
