Madikeri: Islam had never supported terrorism in the country and there is a need for all countrymen to unite to build a stronger India, Abdul Azeem, MLC, has said.
He was participating in the annual Emmemadu Makham Urs celebrations at Emmemadu in Madikeri taluk, known for its all-religion congregation, in Kodagu. Certain politicians with a myopic view were attempting to give a new twist to terrorism, which had provoked communal incidents. No one should pay heed to such unscrupulous elements, Mr. Azeem felt.
An all-religion amity convention (sarva dharma souharda sammelan) was earlier inaugurated by MSM Abdul Rasheed Zaini Kamil Sakhafi, one of the religious leaders.
Anandateerta Swamy of Talacauvery Math was the main speaker. C.S. Arun Machaiah, MLC, T.P. Ramesh, president of the Kodagu Kannada Sahitya Parishat, and A.B. Ummar, president of the Kodagu Wakf Board unit, were present.
