The Global Muslim Women’s Shura Council meeting in Malaysia on Sunday launched an initiative called “Jihad Against Violence.”
“It is basically Muslim women striving for peace” Daisy Khan, Executive Director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and WISE Conference organizer told The Media Line.
“We expect the campaign to be launched globally, because we believe that violence has become a human phenomenon that exists across diverse cultures and communities. It remains an ever-present reality in the lives of millions of women.” Khan said.
“We have launched the Jihad Against Violence in particular because we believe it’s a clear injustice to those who suffer such indignation. It’s also a violation of the teachings of Islam whose mantra is wrongfully used to justify violence.”
