The international conference titled Human Fraternity for World Peace and Security was organised by Muslim World League (MWL) in the Croatian capital of Zagreb on Feb. 8, 2020 to promote the values of human brotherhood for achieving world peace.

The conference was held under the patronage of Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.

The conference called for the enactment of legislation to criminalise all methods and practices of hatred, racism, marginalisation and exclusion as a crime against humanity and the homeland.

It also called for the establishment of a global centre for civilised communication based in Zagreb to be a bridge for dialogue, understanding and cooperation among humans as well as an incubator for initiatives related to promoting human and societal values and bridging the religious, cultural and ethnic gaps.

The activities of the international conference were launched in cooperation with the Islamic sheikhdom in Croatia, the Catholic diocese of Croatia and an official representation from the Vatican State in the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue.

The conference was attended by the Croatia’s prime minister, the speaker of parliament, a number of Croatian ministers and parliamentarians including a wide range of political, religious and intellectual leaders from all over the world.

Secretary general of MWL, Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, stressed that humanity has enough common values for making peace and harmony in the world today. He also noted that the shared love, coexistence and tolerance become closer, stronger and more responsible when they are common national values.
