Is­lamic val­ues pre­serve the le­gal rights and free­doms of ev­ery­one and these val­ues do not ac­cept any form of divi­sion or dis­crim­i­na­tion, the sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the Mus­lim World League said in Abu Dhabi.

Mo­hammed bin Ab­dul Karim Al-Issa was speak­ing at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the Fo­rum for Pro­mot­ing Peace, which drew hun­dreds of del­e­gates from di­verse re­li­gions and in­ter­na­tional hu­man­i­tar­ian or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Al-Issa told the au­di­ence that the re­spon­si­bil­ity of ab­surd words and deeds along with acts of ha­tred, vi­o­lence and ter­ror­ism fell solely on in­di­vid­u­als and not their re­li­gion.

An­other in­ac­cu­racy about Is­lam was fail­ing to re­al­ize that it pre­served the le­gal rights and free­doms of ev­ery­one with­out ex­cep­tion, he said.

The third mis­take was think­ing

The Mus­lim World League (MWL) aims to pro­mote Is­lam’s tol­er­ant prin­ci­ples.
