The Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre, a Jordanian think tank, has named Mirwaiz Umar Farooq among the 500 most influential Muslim personalities across the globe. 

The Mirwaiz has been listed among the world’s 10 influential Muslim politicians for the seventh consecutive year by the reputed institute.

Topping the list, personalities include King Salman of Saudi Arabia, Ayatollah Khamnai of Iran, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and King Abdullah of Jordan.

Kashmir’s top cleric Mirwaiz continues to be under the house arrest for more than 18 months.

Specifically mentioning his arrest, the group stated that he has been under house arrest since August 2019.
