NEW ANTI-ISLAMOPHOBIA APPROACH NEEDED: OIC CHIEF

Muslim World

The February 6-7 Islamic summit Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Cairo will deal with major challenges facing the Muslim world including the Syrian crisis, the Palestinian issue and Rohingya and Mali issues, said OIC secretary-general Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu. “The Cairo summit is significant as it comes at a crucial time and will deal with major challenges facing the Muslim world,” Ihsanoglu was reported as saying on 19 January. He said the Cairo summit, which has been delayed by two years because of political developments in the region, is timely. “During the last two years many things have taken place in the Muslim world. There were political uprisings, the downfall of dictatorial regimes and the democratisation process that has been going through difficult times,” Ihsanoglu said.

Ihsanoglu, who has played a big role in dealing with Islamophobia in the West, said: “We have managed to get important diplomatic successes, through UN Human Rights Council and UN General Assembly. We have managed to convince Western countries to cooperate with us and agree on a consensual text dealing with stereotyping and attacks on Islam and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be to him).”
