GCC condemns Anti-Islam Film, urges calm

GCC condemns Anti-Islam Film, urges calm(Dubai) – The Gulf Cooperation Council condemned an anti-Islam film as well as the violence it has triggered. “This film cannot be accepted or excused as it abuses the feelings of Muslims and non-Muslims who reject insulting prophets, religions and beliefs,” GCC Secretary General Abdullatif al-Zayani said in a statement.
Zayani also “condemned acts of violence against US embassies in some countries,” adding that “our anger… is no excuse to carry out such attacks that only serve the low and suspicious aims of those who produced it.” The GCC chief called for the issue to be dealt with “wisely” and for those who carry out or support such attacks to be punished.
Meanwhile, Bahrain’s Interior Minister, Sheikh Rashed bin Abdullah al-Khalifa ordered “the blocking and stopping of websites carrying the film mocking” the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Citizens were also urged “not to participate in broadcasting the film by sharing it on social media networks,” and advised against allowing their children to watch it.
