4th All India Minorities Business Summit going to held in Mumbai

BeyondHeadlines News Desk

Mumbai: “The framers of our constitution recognising the special needs of the minorities granted them protection through constitutional measures in matters related to their freedom and prosperity. However, over six decades since independence we have experienced that minorities’ interests can be served better when the majority community is taken on board on issues of common interest. Two important common issues are communal harmony and economic betterment.” said Danis Reyaz who is organizing 4th All India Minorities business summit on 21st December 2012; 5:00 pm (Sharp) at Islam Gymkhana, Marine Lines, in Mumbai.

According to Danish Reyaz, “Harmony is very often like the moon, when it is not waxing, it is on the wane. Therefore we believe in cultivating harmony through every possible opportunity. The opportunity we have been exploring and experimenting with over the last few years has been through promoting business relations with various communities. We cannot claim that the journey has been smooth but it has definitely been encouraging and inspiring.”

Describing current scenario he said “Only in recent history have we seen leading intellectuals, business executives and professionals joining the minorities to understand their economic and business requirements and supporting their cause. Consequently, in the last few years we have seen India’s mainstream business houses launching schemes which not only address the economic needs of minority communities but also comply with their religious beliefs. Even government owned financial institutions are now feeling encouraged coming forward with similar plans. Building on this we have decided to organize 4th All India Minorities Business Summit in the financial capital of India, Mumbai.”

Sharing previous experience he said “Like our previous events, this year too we hope to attract some of the top economists, business executives, policy makers, academicians and activists. We also hope that business houses in large numbers will support our initiative to make this Summit a grand success and help us build a better common tomorrow. Like Mufti Barkatullah Abdulqadar,Shariah Advisor Islamic Bank of Britain,coming from London, Hasan Abdul Karim Chogle,CMD Emaad Group of Companies is coming from Qatar and big corporate personalities from Indian Corporate sector are participating the event.”

Danish Reyaz said “We also plan to institute an All India Business Harmony Award to be given in recognition of achievement of harmony through business. And best business Awards from minority community entrepreneurs.”
