Problems associated with the Muslim community have less to do with religion. It is the ongoing injustice and the lack of morally committed governance within the Muslim world and the continuing imperialistic hegemony of the West.

HE Dr. Ahmad Badr al-Din Hassoun,Grand Mufti of Syria [In Arabic]

Many of the problems facing the Muslim community has less to do with ‘Islam’ itself as opposed to how faith-traditions are politicized around the globe. The continued misuse, manipulation and misrepresentation of faiths has undermined the nature of religion everywhere.

Dr. Richard FalkProf. Emeritus of International Law, Princeton University and United Nations Special Rapporteur for Palestine.

Is there a recourse to political violence? He suggested that there is a lack of effective mechanisms to respond to political and socio-economic grievances which have become stumbling blocks to appropriate solutions.

Prof Dr Bekir KarligaAdvisor to the Prime Minister and President, Civilian Studies Center (MEDAM), Bahcesehir University, Istanbul. [In Turkish]

A ‘balance’ is needed as a path to justice. The world needs a concept of ‘global civilization’ to counter-balance ‘modernity’ as the dominant ideology from the West.
