MWL chief receives World's Religions Peace Award

  • Al-Issa has carried out many missions to combat extremist ideology and promote the values of fairness and moderation

RIYADH: The National Council on US-Arab Relations (NCUSAR) has awarded the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, Dr. Mohammed bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa, the World’s Religions Peace Award in recognition of his international efforts to promote peace among worshippers.

The NCUSAR founding president, John Duke Anthony, handed the award to the MWL secretary-general at a ceremony in Washington on the sidelines of his visit to the US.

Al-Issa has carried out many missions to combat extremist ideology and promote the values of fairness and moderation within the framework of enlightened Islamic discourse. 

This initiative is part of the cultural communication program and the implementation of the values of tolerance and coexistence in efficient practical programs, especially in religious and ethnic pluralistic countries. 

It focuses on moderation and tolerance, which are the values and principles of Islam, promoting diversity and the preservation of the human right to live in peace, dignity and legitimate freedom.

Since he became MWL secretary-general, Al-Issa has spread true Islamic values and achieved many successes in the Islamic and international world during his many journeys around the world.
