During the program which will last between January, 25 to February, 1, the IF volunteers that have come from different Valley districts and outside state, will propagate the message of Islam among the non-Muslim tourists and will distribute the Islamic literature, particularly English and Hindi-translated versions of Quran among them.
The organization has this year invited renowned Islamic scholar, Dr. Shoib Sayyed from Mumbai, as a special guest to oversee the program and to train the volunteers with skills to excel in the field of Da’wah.
Chairman IF, Mohammad Aamir, said that the program is part of their long-term mission of spreading Islamic knowledge and teachings among non-Muslims to clear the misconceptions about and to bring them within the folds of Islam.
“The anti-Islamic elements have been pushing hard to defame Islam and create a wedge between people across the world. The media organizations are there out to demonize Muslims and have contributed a lot to Islamophobia. Here, we try to share with our non-Muslim brothers how peaceful religion Islam is,” Aamir said.
