Ambassadors for Peace

Shazaad Mohammed Accompanies Mike Tyson on Visit to Saudi Arabia

Toronto, Canada - An Ambassador of Peace of UPF-Canada's Central District, Sheikh Shazaad Mohammed, accompanied former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson on his first pilgrimage to Mecca and the holy sites in Saudi Arabia. Mike Tyson arrived in Medina on July 5 as part of a series of visits organized by the Canadian Dawa Association, headed by Sheikh Shazaad. Sheikh Shazaad is an Ambassador for Peace with the Universal Peace Federation, and the trip was inspired by UPF's Ambassadors for Peace principles.

Tyson planned to spend one week in the Kingdom visiting the holy places as well as important landmarks in the country and meeting with Saudi people to get to know their culture and traditions. Tyson had embraced Islam while serving a prison sentence in the 1990s.
