The Journal of Religious Studies of the University of Chitral (UOCHJRS) is a tri-lingual peer- reviewed publication that brings out thoughtful original research of interdisciplinary nature with a focus on various inter-related areas of religious studies and theology. While aiming at scholarly study of Islam and the Muslim world it covers all other areas of knowledge ranging from history to developmental science apart from dealing with ethical questions. It tends to make an in-depth inquiry into Islam and provide a forum to global Muslim societies by promoting diffusion, exchange, discussion of research findings and interaction among academics from various areas of learning. It pursues an approach where scholars from different Schools of Thought can contribute towards promotion of common grounds and seeks to encourage interfaith and Intra-faith understanding which will eventually bring harmony in the society.
