ISTANBUL, February 16, 2011 - Leaders of two of the world's principle Muslim majority democracies,
Prime Minister of Malaysia Najib Razak and the Deputy Prime Minister of
Turkey, Ali Babacan are coming together with leading religious, business and
youth leaders on Wednesday 23rd February in a public call for moderate Islam
to stand up and be counted.
The call for moderate Islam to speak out against extremism and for the
Muslim world to embrace political and economic reform comes as events in
Egypt and Tunisia demonstrate the problems of failing to take account of the
needs of the people. Current events provide an opportunity to embrace a
socially and economically progressive agenda.
Prime Minister Najib, Deputy Prime Minister Babacan, ASEAN Secretary
General Dr Pitsuwan and the Grand Mufti of Syria are speaking at the event
'The Global Movement for Justice, Peace and Dignity' at the Conrad Hotel,
Istanbul Wednesday 23rd February.
The event coincides with Prime Minister Najib's state visit to Turkey
22-23rd February 2011 where closer political and economic co-operation
between the two nation's will be discussed.
