PM calls for global law criminating any insult against religions
[25/February/2008]

SANA'A, Feb. 25 (Saba)- Prime Minister Ali Mujawar called for international resolution that criminates any insult against religions and enhances the respect for beliefs of peoples.

In his speech for a meeting organized by Al-Iman University for supporting prophet Mohammed (PBUH), Mujawar conveyed regards of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, expressing condemnation of Yemeni leadership, government and people of republishing insulting caricatures on Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

He called on wise people in western countries to prevent negative impacts that raise abhorrence and threaten ties between Islamic peoples and people in the West.

Mujawar added that publishing the drawings is not among concepts of freedom of expression and insults regions of others under this pretext which is against human values and laws of human rights.

He urged scholars, academicians and media to highlight life of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) among society.

The Premier made clear that ignorance for Muslims' feelings doesn't serve efforts of boosting tolerance and rejection of extremism.

Sadaq Abdullah al-Ahmar, a senior Yemeni sheikh delivered a speech on behalf of Yemeni sheikhs in which he said that "the Muslims are facing regular attacks against their holy places and figures."

Al-Ahmar said that such attacks aim at increasing culture of tourism and abhorrence, calling on Arab nations for boycotting Danish products.

He also called on Arab governments to take required action to defend Islam and prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

Scholar Mohammed al-Hajari delivered a speech on behalf of Yemeni scholars saying hat any insult against prophet Mohammed (PBUH) is an insult for other prophets too, calling on Parliament to issue decision to ban any ties with any one insults Islam.

For his part, chairman of the Al-Iman University, sheikh Abdul-Majid al-Zandani revealed that the university is working to set up a satellite channel in Arabic and English to highlight features of Islam.

Al-Zandani said that the Islamic nation could present a clear view on Islam and get respect of others for this religion, calling to establish an Arab union and an other Islamic, like western unions, to unify Islamic decision.
