Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the World Sufi Forum in New Delhi on Thursday, where more than 200 Indian and international delegates, including Sufi Shuyukh, spiritual leaders, scholars, academicians and masters of Sufism, are participating.
The four-day event is being organised by All India Ulama and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB), the apex body of Sufi Dargahs in India.
The meeting is expected to debate on how Sufi teaching can prevent global terrorism.
The conclave will also debate on how to guide the Muslim community away from sectarian division.
The Sufi Conference is expected to come out with a declaration against extremism and Wahabism in the last day of the event to be convened in the Ramlila Maidan.
