Mangalore, Feb 1: The second edition of journalist the translation of the Holy Quran in Kannada, translated by Abdussalam Puthige, the editor-in-chief of Vartha Bharathi Kannada daily, was released in the city on Friday evening at a programme jointly organised by Forum for Humanity, Udupi and Yuva Vahini Kendra Samiti, Mangalore.

Dr Ganesh Amin S of St Aloysius P U College formally released the book in the absence of Pejawar Mutt pontiff Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji, who was supposed to released the book.

Speaking on the occasion, Msgr Dennis Prabhu, Vicar General of the Diocese of Mangalore, said that the society consisted of various religions and people had to co-exist with peace, love and unity, rather than bring distress to each other. “Religion takes us on the path of progress and righteousness. As people, we have to rise above trifle issues and misconceptions to a level where we break the barriers of caste and religion and live with unity and harmony,” he said, giving a call to people to rise above hatred and achieve mutual understanding.

“Translations must be made with great care, while retaining the originality in its meaning. The translated text has to be further read, scrutinised and reviewed with care, as even minor differences can cause it to be misinterpreted,” he said, adding that the Holy Quran belonged not just to the Muslim community, but was an asset to all human beings and from which every reader could benefit. “Taking inspiration from the Holy Quran, we must always progress along the right path,” he said.

Pejawar seer, who was supposed to participate in the programme, said in his message that each person ought to apply religious values and principles in their life, with the aim of achieving universal welfare. Although differences exist between religions, all religious books preach the message of humanity, peace and love, he said and urged people to follow those values and bring concord and harmony between different religious communities.

Y Abdullah Kunhi, chancellor of Yenepoya University, also spoke. Translator Mr Puthige presided over the programme.

@riyaz, dubai — Do you mean the Kannada translation of the abridged version of ‘Tafheem-ul-Quran’ which was released across major cities of Karnataka around 15 years ago? Isn't that a translation of the meanings of the Qur'an as understood by the author of the original Urdu version of 'tafheemul Qur'an'?

What we need is a Kannada translation of the Qur'an by scholars well versed in both Arabic and Kannada languages and who have a good knowledge of the explanations to the verses as taught by the Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam.

Allah sent the Prophet not just to deliver the book and go, but He had entrusted him with the work of teaching and explaining the Qur'aan before his followers based on the 'Hikmah' which Allah gave him.

Dear Mr. Noor & Ahmed, IF we think the way you think, then what is the difference between us & Bhajrangis?? A bit of efforts by enlightened Muslims here & there to unite people and spread the message. Can any present day Muslim boldly tell that he understood the Qur'an fully and implemented all the teachings in his life? There are many MUSALIMA KHADDABS among Muslims and ABU TALIBS among Non-Muslims. Always our aim MUST BE to reach to these ABU TALIBS.

Everyone knows that Pejawara seer is anti muslim and he is a pakka chaddi. Still our so called 'secular' muslims wants to get him to release the Quran translation!! In any Uroos functions there will be a 'sawharda koota' where relegious leaders of hindus come and make speaches!! What for? Have we seen any Hindu temples or Christian churches inviting our muslim leaders? All waste of time! Better lets try to clean up our community first instead of unwanted 'secular show ups!

The BIG question is have the Muslims themselves have UNDERSTOOD the Quran? Have they Implemneted the Message from the Quran Themselves in theier daily life? Have We muslims prooved ourselves from the message of the Quran? All these talk of Releasing the book and translation means nothing untill muslims themselves implement the Quran.
Had we muslims implemented the Message of the Quran we would not have required all these programs.

Swamiji who lead the mob to demolish centuries old Babri Masjid lost a golden opportunity to place a small brick of trust & harmony between Hindus & Muslims. When the Seer returns to Udupi, organizers kindly visit him and offer a copy of the Kannada translation of Qur’an. How RSS ex-chief Sudarshanji wanted to offer Namaz (Salah) with Muslims just before his death and present RSS chief Mohan Bhagwatji speaks exactly Sharia rules regarding Men’s and women’s role in the society, hardcore anti-Muslim BJP stalwarts speaks of Islamic punishment for rapists, Poojya (Respected) Swamiji’s heart may be illuminated (God willing) at least to acknowledge oneness of GOD. Abdussalam Bhai – May Allah accept your epic work and reward you richly.

Whatever happened that lead Pejawar Seer’s unwillingness to open the release of Quran translation. This is very unfortunate, in this most modern era, the people have not yet recognized and found-out what religion is right and adaptable that suites to be the perfect choice for every success. How can we proclaim we are the smartest when most of the people quarrel and divide the community in the name of religion.

If every religion believes in 1God and, then why do we need multiple religions those leads to all problems in this world rather than to show the path of success in all the aspects of the life.

Why cant we all join hands with each other to filter and find the single religion that perfectly guides and leads to all the destinations and all acceptable and lawful goals.

Yes there is ONE & ONLY GOD that is common to everyone and that has only 1religion. Representatives of Every religion should have a debate with sincere intention to find the truth of their faith. There can not be more than 1true religion.

Then that religion will go in parallel with all true scientific facts, proven theories. If any relgion contradicts the science, it can not be true religion. But sure if we all work together sincerely, we can find and discover that true religion which is sent by the God.

Unfortunately most of the people are intoxicated under the false teaching of made made fake religions. Single true religion is the one and only the real solution to success of man kind. Hope those who are sincere will agree with me.
