ISLAMABAD: King Salman’s efforts to unite the Muslim world and Saudi Arabia’s role in the fight against terrorism have been praised at a conference in Pakistan held this week.
The international “Centrist Rhetoric and Community Security” conference, organized by the Muslim World League (MWL), called for the development of moderate rhetoric and to boost the fight against the currents of extremism.
A statement praised the effort by King Salman, as well as that of Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and deputy crown prince, to unite Islamic countries to achieve security, peace and stability, and to highlight moderation in the face of extremism and terrorism.
Participants at the conference expressed their gratitude and appreciation of Saudi Arabia over its formation of an Islamic military alliance to fight terrorism.
They called upon scholars and preachers, professors, educators and media to exert collective efforts to expose extremists’ fabrications and to reveal their false arguments.
The final declaration of the conference adopted a call made by the MWL to cooperate with official and popular institutions in Pakistan over joint programs aimed at correcting misconceptions about religion.
It also adopted a call for cooperation between the MWL and educational and social institutions and associations in Pakistan to help Muslims address challenges of poverty, disease and ignorance and to provide development projects.
