Mohammed Magarief on Blasphemy Resolution in UN Speech

September 27, 2012

I cannot fail to condemn the anti-Islam campaigns and those defaming His prophet. Such campaigns increase hatred. They aim at provocation and tension in relations among civilizations. They go beyond the concept of free expression. This makes it necessary for the General Assembly of the UN to adopt a covenant in order to criminalize the insulting of symbols of all religions and we as Muslims believe fully in the unity of mankind and in the brotherhood of man and we express our support for dialogue between religions and cooperation, tolerance, and humanitarian values.
