“I got a chance to travel to a Christian dominated country recently. I was disappointed to see Ulemas deliberating upon and writing on trivial issues like the design of the skullcap. They were also engaging in a discourse on the appearance of the Kurta and its linings, sewings, etc. It is to be considered whether such topics are worthy of the interest and skills of an Ulema. An important point to be noted is that an Ulema needs to develop moderation (tawazun) because excess in words sometimes leads to downfall of communities. This tendency has been on a rise among ulemas for the past two decades.
In diasgreements also, limits/decorum have to be maintained. “ (Excerpt from the Keynote Address)
