“The meeting will be attended by 18 human rights commissions from various Islamic countries and OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu,” Tene said.

He said various issues related to respect for human rights and internal matters such as working system and the commission`s future priorities would be discussed in the meeting.

Tene said other participants of the meeting inlude Siti Ruhaini Dzuhayatin of Indonesia, Wael Attiya of Egypt, Mohammed Raisouni of Morocco, Saleh bin Mohammed al-Khatlan of Saudi Arabia, Mahmoud al-Aker of Palestine, Elham Ibrahim Ahmed Mohamed of Sudan, Adel Issa Al-Mahry of the United Arab Emirates, Ousman Diallo Balde of Guinea, Mohamed Kawu Ibrahim of Nigeria, Med.

The Organization of the Islamic Conference was established on September 25, 1969 on the occasion of the first Conference of the Muslim World which was held in Rabat – capital of Kingdom of Morocco.

The 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference is the body representing the world`s 1.2 billion Muslims.

OIC was formed in 1969 after the burning of al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem to enable Islamic governments to “consult together with a view to promoting close cooperation and mutual assistance in the economic, scientific, cultural and spiritual fields, inspired by the teachings of Islam.”

The Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission of OIC was established in June 2011 in Kazakhstan as the world`s first Muslim human rights commission.
