The International Congress on Extremist and Takfiri Movements in the Islamic Scholars’ View closed its works in the presence of Prominent Muslim scholars from 83 countries on Monday Nov 24. 2014 in Qom city of Iran.

According to the Secretary of the World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought, Ayatollah Mohsen Araki, the conference was an intellectual and scholarly event in which Muslim world scholars gather to discuss their views on extremism.

This was one of the few occasions where top Muslim Shiite and Sunni clerics and scholars from across the world were seen under one roof to exchange views on a subject which has turned into the biggest challenge for the world of Islam next to the issue of Palestine.

The event was titled the world congress on extremism and Tekfiri movements in the Islamic scholars’ view. Jointly organized by two of Iran’s prominent religious clerics Grand Ayatollah’s Makarem Shirazi and Grand Ayatollah Sobhani the congress is centered on the role of top Muslim clerics or Ulama, in uniting the Islamic world against Tekfiri terrorists.

Some scholars believe that barbaric acts of decapitating prisoners by groups like the ISIL are an Israeli project aimed at diverting the public opinion towards the suppression of Palestinians by Israeli.

Needless to say, more than 1000 abstract papers and 700 full papers had been submitted to the conference and 200 Shi’ah scholars and 100 Sunni scholars including muftis and prominent figures were present at the international gathering.

The holy city of Qom hosted this one of a kind event on November 23-24 which was held under the auspices of two grand sources of emulation Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi and Ayatollah Ja’far Sobhani.
