Muslim World League to hold conference discussing anti-Islam Western campaigns
RIYADH,(KUNA) — The Muslim World League (MWL) is to hold within the upcoming few weeks a media conference to discuss what motivates hatred and what encourages the launching of an offensive campaign by some Western media against Muslims.
In a statement on Sunday, the league’s Secretary General Dr. Abdullah Al-Turki said the conference would work toward placing an objective work plan to stand up against hatred campaigns through cultural and intellectual methods. He added that media would be used as tool to respond to these campaigns and to spread awareness on the peaceful and just principles of Islam, a religion that calls for co-existence and cooperation. Al-Turki added that participants would discuss how Islam affects Western communities, as well as how to implement positive interaction methods between individuals and institutions to serve Islam and to defend it. He stressed the importance of studying political, historical, social, and cultural aspects that led to these hatred campaigns, so as to be able to place suitable methods to overcome them.
