About our Founder

 Amity Forum was founder by a group of IT professionals around Kochi Infopark around 2007 and registered as a Charitable Trust in 2010.

If there is one person who we can say was the Founder of Amity it would be
Mohammad Iqbal P who was working as a Consultant Manager in Wipro at that time. Sadly he left us on August 14, 2012 due to cancer.You can read his blog here

From our Chairmain

Assalamalaikum,Before I decided to be a part of Amity, I had to address these thoughts that came between Amity and me: Why should we have an organization of Muslims that could alienate us further from the society? With the growing misrepresentations and misunderstandings about Islam in the society, I realized that such an organization has a relevance for 3 reasons:
1) To educate Muslims to be a positive influence in the society
2) To reach out to other communities to spread the right message of Islam
3) To bring everyone under one umbrella for the benefit of the society
 Islam, fundamentally, propounds universal brotherhood. It introduces people to a common God for the entire universe. It teaches that humankind had originated from a common parent and honours men and women as representatives of the God on the earth ordained to encourage each other to do what is good and join hands to discourage what is against human nature.
 A Muslim believes that a peaceful life is a God-centric life, intermingling faith and socially relevant activities. Thus, zakat that uplifts the poor, fasting during Ramadan that makes one feel the agony of the poor and prayers at five times a day in the masjid that connects with the society become the forms of worship to connect with God as well.
 The belief in God is completed in Islam with the belief in the life after death. Every person will be questioned about his life – his thoughts, words and actions. It does not guarantee anyone an entry into the paradise by his birth or lineage. It requires faith as well as good actions. It might sound a bit regressive idea, but there is nothing that motivates a person more to strive till his last breath with hope than h is belief in an everlasting life after death.
Amity has thus been involved in charity activities to support the needy. It organizes ‘Open Masjid Day’ to invite people from all communities to visit a nearby masjid and engage in open discussions.
 We are now living in a time, when the divide between human hearts are widening – be it at home or in the society. There is a responsibility on every human being to work together towards the common good, not only for the human beings, but for the entire planet.

 Towards this goal, let us work together as siblings from a common parent. Together, let us make it a better place.
