The Organization of Islamic Cooperation Festival

Organised by Ministry of Foreign Affair and International Cooperation

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Festival is organised in celebration of the Organisation’s achievements and in consolidation of the Islamic culture and its civilisational heritage.

The Festival aims to raise awareness on the strenuous efforts the OIC exerts towards establishing the foundations of tolerance. The Festival also seeks to promote Islamic and human values which call for tolerance and peaceful coexistence in all forms and activities, in addition to highlighting the main country attractions in the Member States and presenting an overview on the current situation and life aspects of Muslim minorities in non-Muslim majority countries.

This festival will showcase a variety of events such as Folklore Shows, Cultural, Intellectual & Literary Seminars, Calligraphy Exhibition, workshops, and a Manuscript Exhibition.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations with a membership of 57 states spread over four continents. The Organization is the collective voice of the Muslim world. It endeavors to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony among various people of the world.

The Organization was established upon a decision of the historical summit which took place in Rabat, Kingdom of Morocco.

The first OIC Charter was adopted by the 3rd ICFM Session held in 1972. The Charter laid down the objectives and principles of the organization and fundamental purposes to strengthen the solidarity and cooperation among the Member States. Over the last 40 years, the membership has grown from its founding members of 30 to 57 states. The Charter was amended to keep pace with the developments that have unraveled across the world.
