Criminalize vilification of religious symbols, says Saudi official

LILLE, France — Saudi Arabia has reiterated its call on the international community to criminalize any act vilifying religious beliefs and symbols of faith as well as all kinds of discrimination based on religion.

Addressing an international symposium on media coverage of religious symbols based on international law, which started in this French city on Saturday, a senior Saudi official said the Kingdom emphasized years ago that the international community must act urgently to confront ethnic, religious and cultural intolerance, which has become widespread in all communities and peoples of the world.

“We have made it clear that freedom of expression without limits or restrictions would lead to violation and abuse of religious and ideological rights,” said Abdulmajeed Al-Omari, director for external relations at the Ministry of Islamic Affairs.

“This requires everyone to intensify efforts to criminalize insulting heavenly religions, prophets, holy books, religious symbols and places of worship,” he added.

Al-Omari pointed out that such abuses bred intolerance, extremism and human rights violations and contributed to the growing phenomenon of defamation of religions.

    What a typical hypocritical arsehole. He’d better look into his own back yard to find the things he wants to ban.
    I lived and worked in Sowdi Arabia for over three years. Did you know that not one chuch has been built there? Nor one buddhist refuge. They don’t allow any other religion to exist there. Did you know that if you are caught coming into the country with a Bible or Prayer book you will be arrested, imprisoned, whipped and deported? Did you know that Sowdi funds have been used to build over 15,000 mosques and Madrassahs in England and Scotland over the last decade? And yet they do not allow one church to be built in their God-forsaken hell-hole? Telling, isn’t it?
    How does that stand up to freedom of religion scrutiny, you bearded wonder?

    1. Thanks George for your insight, and I’m personally glad that you made it out of there alive!

    Glad to hear that. Now we can all go to Mecca, if that is, we want to.

    1. Excellent take, there are many simple ways to show just how fraudulent their call to respect ”religions” are.
