Dr Mohammad Bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, the Secretary General of the Muslim World League, is set to address prominent religious leaders, scholars, and academics in the Indian capital on Tuesday. Hailing from Saudi Arabia, Al-Issa is widely recognized as one of the strongest global voices advocating for “moderate Islam”.
This event, scheduled to take place at the India Islamic Cultural Centre, will witness the convergence of esteemed personalities, including India’s National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval, who will also deliver a speech during the gathering.
Arriving on Monday, Dr Al-Issa’s visit extends until July 15, allowing ample time for him to engage with various Indian officials. Sources indicate that he is likely to meet with the External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, as well as the Minister for Minority Affairs, Smriti Irani. Additionally, there are plans for him to pay a courtesy call to President Droupadi Murmu, underscoring the significance of his visit.
Before assuming his role as the Secretary General of the Muslim World League in 2016, Dr Al-Issa served as the Minister of Justice in the Saudi Arabian cabinet.
The gathering of influential figures at the India Islamic Cultural Centre, facilitated by Dr Al-Issa’s presence, holds the promise of furthering the cause of peaceful coexistence and interfaith dialogue.
