New Delhi: Movement for empowerment of Muslim Indians (MOEMIN) announced the dates, location and the schedule for its 2019 Social Leadership Summit. The national level event will be held March 1-3, 2019 at India Islamic Cultural Centre (IICC), New Delhi.
The proposed summit aims to engage and start the process of intra community and inter community dialogue. It also look forward to interact with the young social leaders to help and motivate them to strategize for future challenges.
MOEMIN – an advocacy group working for the empowerment of Muslim Indians in collaboration with Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) organised 2 Social Leadership Summit in last four years which was participated by persons representing more than 20 states of India. The participants comprised of academicians, activist, serving and retired government servants as well as policy makers who listened and debated some of the well-known public voices.
The observation during last summits evolved that social leadership in the community will nurture gradually and rigorous efforts are needed to ensure that it blooms. Both the first summits paved way for understanding the concept of social leadership and the participants agreeing to continue forward the mission with same enthusiasm and vigour.
“Current socio-political setup treats Muslim social activists in pursuit of electoral politics. In surcharged political frenzy these talented minds are used for small political gains and hence they lost their relevance in due course of time. In utter state of confusion and pressures from political class, the upcoming social activists crisscross the fine boundary line between social and political activism which distracts them from their pointed goals of serving community and nation at large”, reads the press note.
In the quest for a sustainable change, the community is trying various measures, at individual as well as cluster level to pursue social, economic and educational aspirations, not only within the stipulated government framework but through ancillary private efforts.
The organizers expect that during these three days, a good number of Policy Makers, Community Leaders, Academicians, Activist would discuss and deliberate on key issues facing the community.
