CINVU denounces desecration of Prophet Mohammad (SAWW)
In the Name of Allah (SWT)
COMSTECH Inter-Islamic Network on Virtual Universities (CINVU) condemns the desecrating act against prophet Mohammad (PBUH) by some ignoble people away from humanity and morality and announces that these people have disrespected Holy Prophet (PBUH), which is a great conspiracy against Islam. CINVU urges Muslims around the world to continue to exercise restraints in their reaction to this extreme act of malicious provocation and hatred based on ill-founded presumption of the right to insult and defame the faith, values and cultures of others in the name of freedom of expression.
CINVU hopes that in line with the guidelines of UN Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) Resolution 16/18, the international community would rise to speak up against this utterly irresponsible and disrespectful act. CINVU fully supports the freedom of expression and the need to discuss all ideas and issues in an open, well informed and frank manner including criticism on sacred beliefs. However, insults and negative stereotypes have never produced any positive results. On the contrary, its negative impact on targeted communities is well known to the world in general and Europe in particular.
CINVU believes that in the present difficult times, when the world needs more tolerance, respect for cultural and religious diversity and enhanced dialogue at all levels, such acts are only going to strengthen the hands of extremists on both sides of the cultural divide and further contribute to the growing xenophobia, intolerance and hatred in Europe in particular and world at large.
