Turkish president calls on Muslims worldwide to oppose injustice

Addressing a youth forum in Istanbul on Wednesday, Turkey's president called on Muslims to raise their voice on against injustices they witness.

"Muslims should take responsibility for their own peace and well-being, as well as for the security and future of all humanity, and raise their voices against the injustices they witness," Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in his video message to the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF)'s 4th General Assembly being.

Noting that the world is witnessing one of the most turbulent times in human history, Erdogan said that security problems, terrorist activities, and the coronavirus outbreak prevented longed-for peace.

"Muslims struggling with conflicts, migration, poverty, and disease in a wide geography from Syria to Afghanistan, on the other hand, have to struggle with rising Islamophobia and cultural racism, especially in Western society," he said.
