All India Ulama & Mashaikh Board, an apex body of Sunni Sufi Muslims has welcomed President of Egypt Abdul Fattah Al Sisi and expressed hope that his arrival in India will be helpful in tackling certain problems, common in both the countries.
President and Founder of the Board Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichhowchhawi said in a statement, released here today from the central office of the Board, that the steps taken by President Al Sisi, to curb death and destructions in his country ,are an example to follow by all those states that are suffering from extremism and terror.
Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichhowchhawi said the peace loving people of Egypt revolted against two regimes in a short period. They deposed Hosni Mubarak to be replaced by Mohammad Morsi and later revolted against Morsi to bring General Abdul Fattah Al Sisi to power. These developments speak about the sensitivity of the general people, farsightedness of the religious leaders and activism of social workers to be supported by the governance of Al Sisi. He said that as the head of the government all the steps taken by Abdul Fattah Al Sisi can be defined as exemplary and praiseworthy. Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichhowchhawi said Egyptian people recorded their support to Mr. Al Sisi by electing him for the post of the President of Egypt and declared that the citizenry is, was and remain peace loving as usual. The Egyptian people were sober to declare that they will never again commit the mistake of allowing their protest to be high jacked by extreme forces. They want peace and will support any leader who delivers on maintaining peace.
The President of the board further said that arrival of President Al Sisi to take part in India Africa Summit will strengthen the relations between the two countries that have been historically excellent and co operative. India can benefit from Al Sisi in curbing trends of extremism. Hazrat Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichhowchhawi expressed hope that this visit will be successful in exposing the individual and institution that have been working to promote extreme thoughts in India. He further said that the Board, its office bearers, members, supporters and sympathizers all welcome President Al Sisi in India.
