Arabia Calls For Ban on Criticism of Religious Belief
Saudi Arabia has reiterated its call on the international community to criminalize any act vilifying religious beliefs and symbols of faith as well as all kinds of discrimination based on religion.
“We have made it clear that freedom of expression without limits or restrictions would lead to violation and abuse of religious and ideological rights,” said Abdulmajeed Al-Omari, director for external relations at the Ministry of Islamic Affairs.
“This requires everyone to intensify efforts to criminalize insulting heavenly religions, prophets, holy books, religious symbols and places of worship,” he added.
Especially if it involves criticizing the paleolithic practices of Saudi Arabia, one supposes. It is not clear if Islamic scriptural criticism of infidels would be outlawed, ignored or removed from a revised Koran, but the judicial murder of supposed former muslims who now reject the faith would be more than okay.
