RNA – Professor Ali Mohammad Naqvi, the director of the interfaith centre at Aligarh Muslim University, wrote a letter of appreciation to Ayatollah Alireza Arafi, the head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran:
Your Eminence Ayatollah Arafi,
Head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran in Qom.
It is an honour to receive your important communication at this critical moment for humanity and the sake of our two nations.
Your message is a source of inspiration and guidance for us.
As you have pointed out religion and religious leaders have to play a great role in such historical crises. In India, we are making our little efforts. In our Aligarh Interfaith Centre, we are mobilizing religious and spiritual leaders of Muslims, Hindu, Buddhists, Jain, Christian, and Sikhs to unite to guide masses and provide comfort and peace for them.
In our efforts, your guidance through this message will remain a source of inspiration. We will convey your guidance to other leaders of the faiths and ask our people to upload it on the website of Aligarh Interfaith Centre, namely, www.aiccentre.com.
Ali Mohammad Naqvi,
