IIMSAM Middle East Director & Goodwill Ambassador Dr. Naseer Homoud congratulatory message for President Obama on his landmark winning of Noble Peace Prize. Dr. Naseer hoped that Arab world will feel the real essence of “peace” under visionary guidance of President Obama.
Dr. Naseer Homoud Goodwill Ambassador and Director of Middle East office for the Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina against Malnutrition (IIMSAM), the Permanent Observer to the United Nations Economic and Social Council congratulated President Obama on winning this year Noble Peace Prize. While sending his note to President Obama he said “I congratulate you on this historic occasion and wish you all success in your pursuit of achieving global peace amid these challenging times where world is facing existential threat due to threat of nuclear arms”.
It is to be noted that Dr. Naseer Homoud wrote an open letter for President Obama on the occasion of world peace day being marked every year on September 21, underlying his thoughts on peace in the Middle East region and lauding efforts of President Obama in achieving this goal. The letter was also a humble reply to President Obama’s message to Muslim world which he addressed from Cairo. While answering a question raised by a local journalist Dr. Naseer said “my open letter sent to President Obama this year on September 21 elaborates very well the parameter of our trust on him and his initiatives, it is just a coincidence that just after two weeks he won Noble Peace Prize-2009. I have no words to express my thoughts and I am delighted to see his landmark accomplishment to which himself President Obama said that he felt humbled, this statement shows the parameter of his personality and I am hopeful that Noble Peace Prize would catalyze his efforts pertaining to peace initiatives and its implementations.”
“The Nobel Peace Prize will raise expectations for President Obama to stand up for human rights around the world and I am sure that President Obama will achieve this target” Dr. Naseer further said. It is a pure distinction that barely nine months into office, President Obama has been awarded Noble Peace Prize with the committee citing President Obama’s “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and his support for nuclear arms reduction. “It is a landmark achievement for also people of United States of America that their leader under whom they put their trust and faith has gained such a historic milestone for his country” Dr Naseer Further said.
While stressing on what he earlier wrote to President Obama Dr. Naseer said “world community is building high hopes on you, and we wish that you will certainly do something substantial for the oppressed nations and its citizens and particularly about bringing peace in Middle East, which is subject to longstanding dispute thus creating unwanted pain and agony for the people of the region”. It is truth that very rarely a person gets this recognition while working for humanity at a whole and that’s too in his early age, Dr. Naseer urged.
Dr. Naseer while also congratulating the committee which finalized President Obama for this prestigious prize said “ it is really a wonderful decision which is welcomed by any peace admirer and this will certainly gain momentum to the real essence of Noble committee”.
“The Noble Peace Prize for President Obama, leader of the key military power in the world, at the beginning of his tenure is a reflection of the hopes he has raised globally with his vision of a world free of nuclear weapons” Dr. Naseer said while addressing the media. He went on saying “President Obama represented hope around the world and had "changed the leadership of the world”.
Congratulating President Obama on this occasion which brought this moment attributed among others to his insightful efforts towards the democracy and peace promotion in the Arab world; for his rightly expressing and echoing the culture of Islam and its holistic principles in Cairo speech; and for his firm commitments and strong will to establish peace, Dr. Naseer says that the entire Islamic community is hopeful that the US President’s words would certainly be matched by some practical actions unlike his predecessors who made the retrogressive imprints.
While calling the support of President Obama for IIMSAM Dr. Naseer said “one of the major hurdles to peace initiatives is world hunger and malnutrition and I wish that President Obama shall extend his government support for our organization which is also proudly associated with his family”.
