Rabat, Oct 24, 2020, SPA -- The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) called for committing to the sense of responsibility and staying away of employing Islam or any other faith, for the sake of obtaining partisan or political gains, or using them in media campaigns' bids.
In a statement announced here today, ICESCO said it is following with concern the growing insult and systematic abuse of the personality of the Messenger (PBUH), in the media as well as political rhetoric, namely by some senior officials, in France, a matter that stirs outrage, sadness and shock, as they target over 1.5 billion Muslims' sentiments, across the world, thus stoke and perpetuate hatred among different peoples, under flimsy justifications that do not conform to logic, legitimacy or law, against the backdrop of an isolated murder committed by an extremist person against a French citizen, in an educational institution, in France.
