On the 17th of December 2020, SADF hosted its Annual Conference on ‘Tablighi Jaamat and its role in Global Jihad’, focussed on SADF’s latest Publication, ‘Policy Brief 10 – Tablighi Jamaat and its role in the Global Jihad’.
The Webinar counted with the presence of Mansoor Khan, National President (India) of the Sufi Islamic Board; Mohammad Bulbul Ashraf Siddiqi, Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science and Sociology at North South University; as well as of Siegfried O. Wolf, Director of Research at SADF. The Webinar was Moderated by Paulo Casaca.
This SADF Annual Conference dealt with the vast transnational Sunni Islamic missionary movement that Tablighi Jamaat is. Shedding light on that despite TJ being officially apolitical and non-violent, the organisation and movement is cited by German and other European intelligence reports – which underline the manifold threats originating from this movement, both in Europe and in South Asia.
