Syedna Qutbuddin Harmony Prize is Awarded in Recognition of Outstanding Efforts in Building Bridges and Promoting Peace
The Syedna Qutbuddin Harmony prize is awarded annually to honour an individual organization whose work has had an exceptional impact in promoting harmony and peace in India as well as globally, and in fostering understanding, affection and respect among members of different communities and denominations.
The prize is awarded by the Qutbi Jubilee Scholarship Program (QJSP), in conjunction with the Taqreeb Academic Conference Series, another initiative of QJSP. Syedna Fakhruddin TUS launched the Syedna Qutbuddin Harmony Prize in 2017 in memory of Syedna Qutbuddin RA, who was an exemplar of promoting harmony and peace.
The Syedna Qutbuddin Harmony Prize is in the form of a plaque of honour, and a monetary award of up to 10,00,000 INR (i.e. 10 lacs) to be used toward further efforts of fostering peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
Nominations may be made for individuals or organizations by themselves or by others. If the nomination is made by a third party, the nominee should have agreed to be considered for the prize. The selection committee will favor those who create and implement meaningful solutions in their local, national, and/or international communities: bridge-building efforts which positively address contentious issues and seek to resolve points of conflict, while promoting dialogue that finds common ground in our shared humanity.
