*The Khan of khans ! Arif Mahammad Khan - Dr Dinesh Sharma*
Mohammad Arif Khan's yearning and concern for bringing peace by connecting people on the basis of inherent spiritual element in every religion is so beautifully and clearly visible in his most interviews, lectures and public addresses.
The way he picks up relative verses from different ancient classic texts and integrate them together to further his purpose of uniting people beyond religion, cast and creed, is very beautiful, heart touching and unique. For many decades he had been a very strong and rare voice in favour of spiritual integration for peace in our country. I feel that his सर्वजन सुखाय -सर्वजन हिताय ideas make huge sense even to the religious fanatics of different faith. People are very wise to notice his genuine respect for every religion beyond any political rhetoric or agenda as they know that since long he has taken sanyas from electoral politics.
There are many people in this country who not only adore him but also take inspiration from his highly stimulating thoughts and writings, which are full of wisdom. For many people Khan Saheb is a strong pillar as well important lighthouse of positivity and peace, whose meagre presence in the national leadership gives big hope. His role on the national scene in the future years is going to be very important in terms of maintaining sanity and balance in the expression of people in the power. More so when we notice most social & political leaders of today engrossed in nepotism, personal ambitions, arrogance and egotism.
People expect more from intelligent and reasonable people. As a leader his acceptability in the country is beyond political and religious lines. His sacrificing a very glorious and promising political career in the interest of the country has put him on a very high pedestal forever as renunciation has always been and shall always be respected in our country.
As a leader with great scholarly, philosophical and intellectual credentials he can inspire a vast majority of this country to lovingly and spiritually integrate with each other. His role to begin a new kind of 'Satyagrah' to unite the faction ridden Indian society in true sense, is going to be very pivitol in the coming years.
