Dr Kasule Appreciates Indian Secularism
By A U Asif

New Delhi, August 6 Internationally renowned medical scientist and Islamic scholar Dr Omar Hasan Kasule here today appreciated Indian version of Secularism as it provided a space to every religion, including Muslims to profess and practice freely. Delivering his lecture on “Towards Educational Excellence amongst Muslims: The Epistemological and Quality Dimensions” at the conference Hall of the Institute of Objective Studies (IOS), he said the Indian Secularism was different from Secularism practiced in some Western countries.

Dr Kasule, Vice President, International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and also associated with the faculties of medicine of King Fahad Medical City Riyadh, University of Malaya and University of Brunei, averred that every civilization that began in any part of the earth had a story of both rise and fall but Islamic civilization was different from other civilizations in the sense that therein was the principle of tajdeed (revival) and islah (reform) and with its help it could never die.

“Islamic civilization could have a rise again after rise and fall through tajdeed and islah whereas other civilizations die finally after a rise,” he asserted.

Dwelling in detail the meaning of “Ehsan”, Dr Kasule stressed the need for right concept of knowledge.

Agreeing with Dr Kasule, IOS Secretary General Dr Z M Khan opined that these ideas needed a roadmap, infrastructure and human resources. The lecture was followed by a question-answer session.

Prominent among those present on the occasion included IOS Finance Secretary Dr Ausaf Ahmad, Supreme Court Advocate on Record Mushtaque Ahmad, senior journalist Mohammad Zeyaul Haque, All India Milli Council Finance Secretary Mauji Khan, Jamia Millia Islamia academic Dr M Afzal Wani, social activist Tanveer Alam, activist Mohammed Alam and journalist Khursheed Alam.

It is to point out that Dr Kasule along with his wife, two sons and a daughter was leaving the national capital tomorrow after spending a few days in India.
