The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) has announced that it held a forum on the promotion of Islam and Shariah law sponsored by a Saudi Arabian juice company. According to the announcement:
The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), an Islamic educational organization which provides a platform for Muslim youth to gather in an Islamic environment, recently held its second forum in Mecca to emphasize the vital role of the youth in building a better future for the global Muslim community. The symposium discussed broader promotion of Islam and Sharia Law, identified correct Islamic beliefs, and encouraged greater pride in Islam among the youth. It also identified and commended various bodies, institutions and scientific associations supporting the cultural and professional growth of Muslim youth to enhance dialogue and understanding between Muslim organizations and western societies. “The Assembly succeeded in clarifying the message and mission of Muslim youth during the forum. Al Rabie recognizes the potential of Muslim youth in effecting positive change across Muslim society as well, which is why we were elated to have the opportunity to fully support this event. Our productive partnerships with organizations such as WAMY enable us to contribute to the growth of Muslim communities and the better global understanding of the Islamic faith,” said Monther Al Harthi, General Manager, Al Rabie Saudi Foods Co. Ltd. Sponsored by Al Rabie, a producer of dairy products and juices in the KSA and the largest juice manufacturer in the Middle East, the Mecca forum is part of WAMY-organized conferences, symposia, educational workshops and research aimed at addressing youth and student issues. Al Rabie constantly engages in various social programs and advocacies in affirmation of its commitment to supporting community and individual growth within the Kingdom and across the Arab region.
Al Rabie reported sales in 2000 of $250 million.
Muslim Brothers were instrumental in the founding of WAMY and the organization continues to enjoy close relations with the global Muslim Brotherhood. U.S. government agencies and officials have argued that WAMY has helped spread Islamic extremism around the world as well as sponsoring terrorism in places such as Bosnia, Israel, and India. Numerous previous posts have discussed WAMY’s activities throughout the world.
