JERUSALEM, Sheikh Mohammad Hussein, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine, condemned today the publishing of caricatures offensive of Prophet Mohammad of Islam.
Hussein described the caricatures, published in a French newspaper, as immoral and savage, and that they were performed by “a stray group that hates Islam, Muslims and their symbols.”
He said all mundane and divine laws prohibit the insulting of religions and their symbols, demanding in the meantime the enactment of international laws that prohibit the insulting of religions and their symbols and punish anyone who insults religious symbols.
The Grand Mufti warned that the publishing of further hateful material would fuel hatred among people and bring about conflicts between communities.
