Recently, India has received unusual praise from Saudi Arabia's World Muslim League for its policy of non-violence and tolerance towards all. The Mecca-based World Muslim League timed its praise for India's Global and National outlook on Gandhi Jayanti- something which Saudi Arabia-based Islamic Group has never done before.
Hailing Mahatma Gandhi for being a pioneer of the philosophy of non-violence, the Muslim World League, for the first time, paid tribute to Gandhi on his 153rd birth anniversary and said that the day should be an occasion to spread the message of non-violence internationally. (ANI)
