IOS Conference on “Challenges Before Youth in Contemporary World” Begins at Chennai
By A U Asif

Chennai, December 10 An extraordinary international conference on “Challenges Before Youth in the Contemporary World” being organized by the internationally reputed think tank Institute of Objective Studies (IOS) in collaboration with Chennai-based Muslim Educational Association of Southern India (MEASI) began here today as part of a year-long silver jubilee celebrations with fanfare. It is being participated by a number of experts, scholars, other dignitaries and delegates from inside and outside the country.

Delivering his inaugural address, Dr Ibrahim Bin Hammad Al Quayid of Riyadh-based World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) said the youth today in general faced three kinds of challenges. According to him, they were of political, economic and socio-cultural nature.

An ideal society can emerge only when these three challenges are tackled tactfully taking them in confidence,” the renowned scholar opined.

Dato Mohammed Iqbal, a well known scholar and United Nations representative from Malaysia, said Islam didn’t differentiate between persons other than piety.

Padamshree Mecca Rafique Ahmed, Chairman, Chambers of Commerce, Karnataka and a business tycoon said    the youth today were running after money and going materialistic. “That’s why they are full of tension, stress and strain,” he said.

According to him, capitalism and Socialism were only 200-300 year-old whereas the history of Islam and Muslims was of more than a thousand years. Therefore, only Islam could come as a natural remedy to the youth, he declared.
In the words of V R Lakshminarayanan, IPS (Retd), the main issue was how to provide education to the entire Muslim community.

Author of his master-piece “Role of Muslim Youth in the Reconstruction of Contemporary World” published 28 years ago, IOS Chairman and star attraction of the conference Dr M Manzoor Alam said he had discussed the issues 28 years ago in his book but they still remained relevant because situation changed with the passage of time but not the roorcause.

On this occasion, important dignitaries were awarded awards. The conference would continue with five business sessions and would end on the 11th December evening.
