The Finance Committee of the Moslem World Conference recommended to-day that every Moslem should be taxed twopence a year towards defraying the expenses of the Islamic Conference. The same amount should be paid by each Moslem attending a feasting or family celebration, the Committee further recommends, and in addition the proceeds from the sale of the hides of animals used in sacrificial offerings should go for the purposes of the Conference.
