Turkish First Lady welcomes UN's Islamophobia draft resolution
Türkiye's First Lady Emine Erdoğan welcomed the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) inclusion of the term Islamophobia in a draft resolution, as a result of the efforts of Türkiye, which she said was a positive step for fighting discrimination and racism.
She continued by saying that the U.N.'s recognition of Islamophobia as a term will also contribute to enhancing the fight against it.
"I hope that justice and tolerance triumph in an atmosphere where countries considered as the heart of democracy and freedom remain silent in the face of rising hatred and discrimination," Ms. Erdoğan said.
Turkish officials have continuously called on world leaders to take action to stop the demonization of Muslims and have been taking action to tackle the growing problem.
