Muslim World League condemns attempts to abuse followers of  religion

MAKKAH: The Muslim World League (MWL) has condemned attempts to insult and abuse followers of religion. The MWL stated that the principle of freedom of expression must be framed by values based on respect for the feelings of others and that freedom of opinion, when it deviated from those values, offended the moral meaning of freedoms.
Dr. Mohammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, secretary-general of the MWL, said the body was aware that the motive for stirring religious sentiment was “on the face of it” nothing more than a provocation for material gain.

RIYADH: Winners of the the King Salman International Award for Disability Research will be announced on Monday at a press conference in Riyadh.
The aim of the award is to enrich scientific knowledge through qualitative research in different disability fields.
Prince Sultan bin Salman, who is chairman of the board of trustees at the King Salman Center for Disability Research (KSCDR), established the award to encourage scientific research because he saw prevention, treatment and rehabilitation as the best ways of fighting disability.
The center specializes in carrying out, supporting, and fostering interest in disability research and programs, as well as working with the government and private sectors alongside encouraging scientific research and effective practices in the fields of disability. The award carries the name of King Salman, who has supported KSCDR since it was set up in 1991. KSCDR aims to become a leader in the field of disability research and have a global impact.
The objectives of the award include creating an environment of creativity and scientific excellence that seeks to find adequate methods, means and solutions aimed at preventing or minimizing the effects of disability on the disabled and their families, establishing a culture that fosters scientific research locally, regionally, and internationally, and using scientific research to adapt modern technology to the needs of people with disabilities in order to help them achieve their goals, hopes, and aspirations.
