Indian Muslim intellectuals have called for peace amidst in the region.

Eminent scholars and intellectuals of India have expressed serious concern over the war between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. They emphasized that war is not a solution to any problem and that peace talks must take place.

He said, during the G-20 PM Modi had reiterated that it is not the era of war. We condemn the terrorist attacks on the Israeli soil, adding, no common citizens of Israel and Palestine should made to suffer. Peace is the only way forward.

Khwaja Iftikhar, President, Inter-Faith Harmony Foundation of India, said that it is actually very unfortunate. The conflicts are not being resolved. It has been going on since 1967. There should be peace all over the world but unfortunately there no peace at all. It is actually very painful to see the loss of precious human lives. For how long this conflict will go on? All the conflicts should be resolved as early as possible to save innocent lives.

Zakir Hussain, another scholar of West Asian studies, said the world should come together to resolve the issues of Israel and Palestine. It has been neglected over the decades; Palestinians are desperate now for their lands. Hamas are the extremists, who think they can solve their age-old issues with their weapons of violence. India will come up with some mechanism to establish peace.
