Forum for Promoting Peace in Islamic Societies
The Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies was launched 2014 in response to the unprecedented violence and devastation spreading throughout the Muslim world in recent years. The impetus for this initiative was that the situation is more dire than crises of the past. These conditions have rendered lands unstable and lead to distorted perceptions of Islam worldwide – particularly in the West, where prejudice and acts of violence against Muslims are increasing as a result of an escalation in Islamophobia.
