Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri has been at the forefront enhancing understanding between the Non Muslim and Muslim communities and building bridges between their respective followers. Through his personal statements, numerous lectures, rhetoric and publications, he has created an environment of tolerance and universal brotherhood and love and the same is being propagated by Minhaj-ul-Qur’an centres throughout the world, with interfaith partnership and friendship being extended to all major faiths, and events organized involving followers of Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Sikh or Hindu faiths.
In line with the message of peace and tolerance taught by Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri, Minhaj Interfaith & Welfare Foundation, India organises regular gatherings, joint interfaith programmes and welfare activities in order to highlight the mutually shared values of the Muslim and Non-Muslim faiths and promote inter-religious cooperation and harmony.
The main focus of the Minhaj Interfaith & Welfare Foundation is is upon consciously and proactively serving those in need, be they of any colour, creed or religion. In fact Islam admonishes those who fail to see and address the needs of the poor, weak, elderly, oppressed, orphans, widows, refugees, travellers and prisoners. Islam does not differentiate between Muslims or non-Muslims in this regard but treats it as it should be; a humanitarian issue which should be dealt with humanely without any prejudices or hatred surfacing or dictating the course of assistance, help or aid.
