UN rights council passes Islamic resolution on religious defamation

Published: 03.27.08, 21:45 / Israel News

The top UN rights body on Thursday passed a resolution proposed by Islamic countries saying it is deeply concerned about the defamation of religions and urging governments to prohibit it.

 

The European Union said the text was one-sided because it primarily focused on Islam. EU countries, including France, Germany and Britain, voted against. Previously EU diplomats had said they wanted to stop the growing worldwide trend of using religious anti-defamation laws to limited free speech. The document, which was put forward by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, ''expresses deep concern at attempts to identify Islam with terrorism, violence and human rights violations.''
