The final statement of the first International Conference on Islamic Awakening in Tehran highlights the role of pure Islam and popular involvement in political and social fields.
BFnews: According to the statement issued on Sunday, “Unity of the entire Muslim Ummah (Nation) is necessary for returning to national and Islamic dignity and independence of Muslim nations from the political, economic and ideological dominance of oppressive powers.”
The statement pointed out the unique role of people, especially women and youths, in the popular revolutions across the Middle East and North Africa.
The "glorious resistance" of Palestine and Lebanon against Israel was described as the most significant subject in the Muslim world.
The conference also expressed solidarity with the people of Somalia who face a dreadful famine.
Five special committees were set up during the two-day event to discuss different aspects of the Islamic Awakening, including the history and basic tenets of the revival movement as well as figures that have played a role in the popular uprisings, and the challenges ahead.
The conference, attended by scholars and popular figures from over 80 countries at the IRIB international conference center, also agreed on the establishment of a permanent secretariat based in Tehran.
