Muslim World League Chief Mohammad Bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa on July 12 lauded Indian philosophy and tradition that taught harmony to the world, and said that he salutes the democracy and Constitution of India. He also highlighted the “peaceful coexistence that he witnessed in India is unique.”
The current Secretary General of the Muslim World League (MWL), an organisation based in Saudi Arabia and representing Muslims worldwide was on a five-day visit to India beginning July 10. He hailed India while addressing the “Dialogue for Harmony among Religions,” an event organised in collaboration with Global Foundation for Civilisational Harmony (India).
On his visit to the Akshardham temple in Delhi, he said India is a great example of unity in diversity.
During his Indian visit, the MWL chief also issued a piece of advice to religious leaders and said there is a need to protect and guide the next generation. Al-Issa, who is an Islamic scholar and renowned figure in global affairs, appealed to stand against the narratives about the clash of civilisations and religious hatred. He also noted the wrongdoings of some religious leaders, who do not work to promote peaceful coexistence.
