Blog Examines Role Of Islamist Leadership In Combating Polio

Noting the Global Vaccine Summit held in Abu Dhabi last week, Ayesha Malik, a campaigner at the Muslim-led campaigning charity MADE in Europe, writes in a post in the charity’s blog about the role of Islamic leadership in the global push to eradicate polio. “As Muslims, we should be the pioneers of safeguarding human welfare and now we have been given this opportunity to contribute towards something miraculous, we must support it wholeheartedly. The invitation and the responsibility of course extends beyond the participants of the summit to each one of us in our own capacity,” Malik writes in the blog post, which also was published in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog (4/25).
