Mr. Muhammad Umar Chairman of the Ramadhan Foundation comments:

“The 2nd International Muslim Unity Convention held on Dec 15 -16th 2009 in Kuala Lumpur was a great success, with over 25 international speakers, economists, business leaders and commentators this was the first of its kind across the world where speakers came together to talk about Muslim unity.

With representatives from the Shia, Sunni, Salafi and many other groups from the diverse global Muslim families this Convention not only talked but demonstrated unity in practice.

A keynote address from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed, 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia started the first day along with speeches from a variety of scholars and international speakers.

I am grateful to all the international speakers and guests, sponsors, MY Events and Perdana Leadership Foundation in Malaysia for their support and commitment to this vision.

Plans have already started for the 3rd Muslim Unity Convention in 2010 and I am certain it will be bigger and better.”
