Former president of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga and Grand Mufti Naim Ternava, are ranked among the world’s 500 most influential Muslims by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre, from Jordan, Gazeta Express reports.

In the 2020 edition, Grand Mufti Ternava is ranked among the most influential leaders for his role in creation of the Inter-Religious Council Organization for Interfaith Relations, whereas Jahjaga has been ranked in this list for her political role.

“Jahjaga was Kosova’s youngest and first woman president from 2011 until 2016. After earning a law degree from the University of Prishtina in 2000, she continued her studies in the UK and the USA. She then served in various governmental positions including the rank of Major General for the Kosovo Police,” it is stated in the report.

Ternava is recognised in this list as the leading religious figure in Kosovo, which emerged after an ethno-religious war resulted in widespread loss of life and destruction. “Ternava is a key figure in the attempts of the country’s Muslim population to overcome the horrors of war. He was instrumental in the creation of the Inter-Religious Council Organization for Interfaith Relations,” the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre said. /GazetaExpress/
