Report of Three-day International Conference on Interest-Free Institutional Mechanism (Banking, Finance and Insurance) for Promoting Investment at Kashmir University on June 3-5, 2011

Dr Mohammad Manzoor Alam said: We have to be able to put things in a moral perspective rather than functioning merely as a data-storage or data-processing system, or operating as a pre-programmed robot. Islam puts human beings at the centre of Creation, calling humans ashraful makhlooqat (the best of God's Creation) because of our ability to create a moral order, not because we are clones of robots.

Dr Alam observed that knowledge society and knowledge economy had no meaning without social enlightenment and inclusion as it would further act to the disadvantage of the weakest of the weak and the most vulnerable of the vulnerable.
