Jordan King says fight against terror isn’t war on any religion or on Muslims


New Delhi: Jordan’s King Abdullah II said today that the global fight against terror isn’t a war against any religion or against Muslims, it’s a war against hate and violence. He further said that the Prophet Muhammad preached compassion, humanity and mercy.

“This is my faith, the faith I teach my children, the faith shared by 1.8 billion Muslims around the world,” said Abdullah.

Jordan’s King was speaking at a conference in New Delhi on ‘Islamic Heritage: Promoting Understanding & Moderation’. His address is seen as important for India and for the region during a time when regimes are trying to fight religious radicalisation.

Before he spoke, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he appreciates Abdullah’s work towards deradicalisation.
