SOCIO-JUSTICE: ACTING LIKE A CATALYST IN NURTURING THE INTERFAITH RELATIONSHIPS
Keywords:Social Justice, esoteric theory, Practically Implemented
This article aims to elucidate that the role of religion is influential in casting notions of social impartiality, despotism, subjugation, and emancipation. It will be explained in this article that according to Islamic teachings, injustice is explained as one of the abysmal forms of evil, that justice and neutrality should not be predicated on a specific group of people, religious belief, race, caste, creed, or faith it should be done with each creation of God. Examples of social justice will also be given from prominent non-revelational religions. Finally, it will be explained that Islam stands as an ambassador religion to safeguard the rights of the entire community and a staunch icon of religion in this interfaith religion’s dialogue. To conclude, it will be justified that the concept of social justice prevails in each religion, whether it is implemented practically or not is another topic of debate, but Social Justice is the need of the hour.
