Thousands attend Islamic Peace Conference in Kashmir



The family members of known world Islamic scholar and president Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) Dr. Zakir Naik today spoke at the Kashmir University during a seminar about women, titled “Srinagar Islamic Peace Conference – 2014” that included a lecture by Naik’s wife Farhat Zakir Naik.

The conference was organized by Feroz Peerzada, managed by Loud Beetle – an event management company based in Kashmir. According to the organisers, the audience present in the convocation hall of the varsity was more than the seating capacity of 2500. “The number of audience was more than the seating capacity, around 4000 people. So, we allowed people to sit on the hall floor and stairs,” one of the organisers told The Kashmir Walla.

The conference was about the changing trends of life style among the women in Kashmir, the organizers said, during which several members from the audience had queries related to the women in Kashmir. “The conference was arranged in view of the growing trends of western life style in Kashmir and the related issues coming to fore due to the same.”

The organizers had allowed only women to listen to the speakers.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
