Prominent Islamic center in Iran has issued a message to censure western governments and groups that divide nations, denominations and cultures or support disrespecting ethnicities, cultures, races and religious beliefs, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
The statement noted that such divisive moves are certain instances of breaching freedom of expression and a threat against coexistence among people.
It referred to economic and social discrimination in France which have been the subject of massive protests since last year and said," Racism against the black people in the US, Islamophobic scenario in the west followed by a president claimant of freedom has revealed a new phase of plans by colonial powers."
Islamic World Peace Forum called all people to condemn the move made by French President and expects Macron to retreat from his stance as well as apologizing more than 1.5 billion Muslims hurt by his comments.
The forum urged popular organizations, elites and intellectuals to censure sacrilegious moves made under the pretext of freedom of expression and provide the grounds for preventing such measures against humanity and human rights.
