OIC to mobilize all resources to tackle spread of COVID-19
RIYADH (92 News) – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has pledged to mobilize all their resources to tackle the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In a press release, the OIC general secretariat emphasized that it would pursue its response campaign until the coronavirus was contained, and would continue to support the overall efforts to cushion the impact of the pandemic on the member states. It is said that the aim of the campaign is to showcase the efforts led by the OIC member states, the General Secretariat and OIC institutions in response to the pandemic. Earlier, the OIC has condemned the unrelenting vicious Islamophobic campaign in India maligning Muslims for spread of coronavirus. The Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission of the Organization in a tweet said Indian media is negatively profiling the Muslims in media and subjecting them to discrimination and violence with impunity. The OIC Commission urged the Indian government to take urgent steps to stop the growing tide of Islamophobia in the country and protect the rights of its persecuted Muslim minority as per its obligations under the international law.
