PATNA — Amid escalating communal tensions across India, religious leaders are taking proactive steps to foster understanding and harmony. One notable initiative, Sarva Dharma Manch in Bihar, led by Maulana Rizwan Ahmed Islahi, a leader of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind in Bihar, aims to bridge divides among followers of different faiths.

“Hatred has intensified in society, and only religious leaders can dispel this confusion,” emphasized Islahi. The platform convenes a meeting for Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, and Christian leaders every three months to promote tolerance and unity through awareness campaigns and mutual dialogue.

“This initiative is purely social, focused on eradicating societal evils and strengthening brotherhood,” clarifies Maulana Rizwan Ahmed Islahi. Recognizing India’s diverse religious landscape, he stresses the importance of mutual respect and understanding among communities.

With communal discord on the rise, Islahi highlighted the critical role of religious knowledge in bridging societal gaps. “Sarva Dharma Manch Bihar facilitates discussions and practical initiatives to address these issues,” he explained.

The platform also emphasized studying each other’s religious texts to foster mutual respect and understanding. Events like Eid Milan and Holi Milan organized by Sarva Dharma Manch Bihar aimed to promote unity and harmony among communities.

Looking ahead, Islahi underscored the need for concerted efforts by religious scholars and community leaders to promote communal harmony. “Together, we can eliminate hatred and build a better society,” he concluded.

In Bihar, the Manch continued to organize programs and meetings to strengthen its efforts for societal betterment, aiming not only to benefit Bihar but the nation as a whole.
