Dr. Abu Ameena Bilal Phillips on co-operation between Tablighi Jamaat, Jamaat-e-Islami & Islamic Research Foundation

.........On India (On his visit)

I first visited India in 1991. While doing research. I found the Muslims particularly in a pathetic state in North India. Muslims were steeped in superstitions. Next trip was in 1997 and I visited Kerala. I saw some signs of hope. Organizations like Jamaat -e- Islami Hind, Tablighi Jamaat and Islamic Research Foundation in Mumbai are carrying out excellent work. The Jamaat-e-Islami work is focused more on universities, and intellectuals while Talbigh works on commoners. There is need for cooperation among these organizations...............
