Manipal, Apr 15: The Centre for Gandhian and Peace Studies, a constituent of Manipal University, will organise a seminar on “Understanding Islam” on its premises on Saturday April 16. The seminar proposes to explore different dimensions of Islam as a religious culture with its own belief systems, philosophy, science, day-to-day practices, festivals, customs, diversity and reform movements.

It is an attempt to understand Islam in its diversity as practiced in different regions of the world, much against the image of being a stereotype. While there could be misunderstanding, primarily also due to lack of adequate knowledge about the practices, the seminar essentially makes an attempt to fill this gap.

Islam, the religion of Muslims, was enunciated by Prophet Muhammad who lived between 570 AD and 632 AD. It [Islam] means “submission” in Arabic. The religion was born in Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Islamic sects and practices are linked with the history of Islam.

The topics and speakers at the seminar include “Origin and Evolution of Islam” by Shariq Ahmad Khan, a student of Gandhian Studies and Communication from Manipal, “Basics of Contemporary Islam” by Zubair Ahmed, an engineering student from Hyderabad and “Sufism, Islam and women” by Nadeem Ahmed Moonakal, a student of Gandhian Studies and Communication from Manipal, the release said.

It will begin at 3.30 p.m. at the Old TAPMI building, behind Manipal Post Office.
