Islamic states push for global anti-blasphemy resolution
Catholic News Agency
The Organization of the Islamic Conference has sponsored a draft resolution at the United Nations that would condemn the "defamation of religion" and create a global "anti-blasphemy law."
The draft resolution was presented by Pakistan in the name of the Islamic conference, which holds a majority of the seats on the U.N. Human Rights Council, according to the Spanish daily ABC.
The Muslim organization hopes to secure passage of the resolution by the U.N. General Assembly. However, the resolution has been met with widespread rejection, especially for its condemnation of the criticism of radical Islam by the media.
