Toronto Interfaith Forum: The Rise and Fall of Leaders

Toronto, Canada - On June 11, an event was organized by UPF Central District (Canada) to listen the talk by Author Qamrul Khanson on the topic of the "Rise and Fall of Inadequate Leaders." This is an ongoing series of talks which is being held to learn in depth knowledge of political upheaval in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.

Author Qamrul Khanson welcomed all the guests and invited them to coffee and refreshments. Dr. Hussein Auckberaullee requested Rev. Mitch Dixon to preside over the meeting. Rev. Dixon requested A.R. Qureshi to invoke blessings of God for the gathering and the UPF. He magnificently led the supplication seeking to get strength and empowerment for each member of UPF.

Rev. Stoyan Tadin expressed some clarification with references to the talk and said, the divine leaders are the true leaders but what knowledge and wisdom they possessed, it should have been transferred to the people so that results are visible towards adequate leadership for the people.

Rev. Katsumi Kambashi asked a question to Qamrul Khanson regarding the combination of religion and politics in Islam. He responded that Islam does not segregate on the matter and politics is the part of religion. Islam is the way of life and adequate leaders within Islamic society shall follow the role model in Muhammad (PBUH) to serve people adequately and adequate leaders.

A.R. Qureshi expressed appreciation for the talk and expressed the need to seek role model for the adequate leadership of the community.

Dr. Hoossen Auckberaullee invited A.R. Qureshi to speak on the topic in July’s monthly meeting of UPF Central District.

Rev. Mitch Dixon thanked all the participants and expressed appreciation for the talk, which was beneficial for the understanding of leadership in the Arab world.
