KUWAIT, Oct. 23 (KUNA) -- The Foreign Ministry on Friday said that Kuwait had followed with deep dismay the continued circulation of caricatures lampooning Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
In a press statement, the ministry announced its backing to the statement of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation which expressed the Muslim World's rejection of these offenses and practices.
The ministry warned about the danger of official political discourses supporting such assaults on religions or prophets.
Such acts instigate hatred, enmity, violence and undermine the international efforts to promote the values of tolerance and peaceful coexistence, the ministry argued.
It cautioned against the continued backing of such insults and any discriminatory policies which associate Islam with terrorism.
These acts do not reflect the reality, ignore the tolerant Islamic teachings which condemn terrorism and gravely offend Muslims worldwide, the ministry concluded. (end)
