Extremism, Terrorism Against Very Meaning Of Islam": NSA Ajit Doval
"Islam ordains that the most excellent form of Jihad is 'Jihad Afzal' - that is, Jihad against one's senses or ego- and not against innocent civilians," NSA Ajit Doval said.

The NSA thanked Indonesian minister Mohammad Mahfud MD for bringing a high-level ulema delegation to India.

Doval said the aim of the discussion was to bring together Indian and Indonesian ulemas and scholars to promote “tolerance, harmony and peaceful co-existence”.

He also stressed that civil society needed to develop a shared narrative on de-radicalisation.

He insisted that in a democracy, “there was no place for hate speech, prejudice, propaganda, demonisation, violence, conflict and misuse of religion for narrow ends”.

Top Indonesian minister Mohammed Mahfud MD is in Delhi on the invitation of National Security Advisor Doval. Mahfud, the Coordinating Minister for the Political, Legal, and Security Affairs of Indonesia is accompanied by a high-level delegation of Ulema.

Visiting Ulema from Indonesia also interacted with their Indian counterparts. The discussion was on the 'Role of Ulema in fostering a culture of interfaith peace and social harmony in India and Indonesia'.
