Saudi king says extremists are not MuslimsDecember 10th, 2008 - 11:46 am ICT by ANI
Mina (Saudi Arabia), Dec.10 (ANI): Saudi Arabias King Abdullah has said that extremists do not belong to Muslim Ummah, and every effort must be undertaken to defend society from the menace of disunity, ignorance and extremism.
Speaking at a reception for leading personalities of the Muslim world attending the Haj this year at the Mina Palace yesterday, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, said: Today, we need a dialogue of the Ummah within itself. It is because sedition, ignorance and fanaticism are threatening the hopes of Muslims. The terrorism that threatens the entire world is attributed to Muslims alone because of the acts of a few extremists who represent none but themselves.
The News further quoted him as saying Though they put on the guise of Islam, the religion has nothing to do with them. This is what makes the dialogue of the Ummah with itself imperative for achieving a unified stand, elimination of the causes of their disputes, strengthening their moderate middle path, and to stamp out extremism.
The guests included Sudanese President Omar Bashir, Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas, Chechen President Ramadan Kadirov and Secretary-General of the Muslim World League Abdullah Al-Turki. (ANI)
