Guwahati: Assam’s Muslim intellectuals, activists and academicians have condemned the series of attacks by terrorist outfits in several places including in Bangladesh capital Dhaka.
On Tuesday, around two hundred people came out on the streets of Guwahati and also attended a meeting.
Senior advocate Hafiz Rashid Ahmed Choudhury said that there is no place for terrorism in Islam.
They also urged the central and state government to take strict action against any kind of terror activities.
Taufik Rahman Borbora, former principal of Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) said that due to these kinds of violent activities, people these days are scared of Muslims.
Renowned surgeon of GMCH Ilias Ali who has also played a major role in controlling population said that Islam is against terror. “No religion has ever asked to kill innocent people. And similarly Islam also teaches peace. How can these people kill people in the name of Islam? We condemn such act and appeal to the people of the country to stand united and defeat such evil forces which are our enemy,” Ali said.
They also condemned the attack on the minorities in Bangladesh. “As a minority community in India, we are disturbed by the continuous attacks perpetrated against minorities in Bangladesh. We condemn such acts of terror in the strongest terms. We want to make it clear that those spreading terror in the name of religion are enemies of humanity,” Hafiz Ahmed, president of Char Chapori Sahitya Parishad, a literary body, said.
Senior journalist Haidar Hussain said that all sections of people should come out against such act.
Shahjahan Talukdar, an organizer of the peace rally, said that they want to send a strong message that the act of terror or any kind of activity to bring division in the society here in Assam or in India will not be tolerated.
So far several hundred people were killed by ISIS in the last few months in some major cities across the globe.
