“Criminalize Hate speech”, King Salman urges International Community in the wake of New Zealand attacks
Riyadh – Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulazeez on Tuesday called the International community to criminalize the racist ideologies and hate speeches that lead to Terrorism.
King Salman during a cabinet meeting reiterated that religions are made to sustain peace rather violence, and urged everyone to fight against those who incite hatred, SPA reported.
All the council ministers expressed utter grief over the unfortunate deaths of over 50 people during the Christchurch terrorist attack in New Zealand.
Saudi’s Information Minister, Turki bin Abdullah al-Shabana said, “The cabinet reiterated the Kingdom’s condemnation of the terrorist attack.”
“We stress the kingdom’s encouragement of respect for all religions, and we call to criminalise and fight all hate speech that can lead to terrorism,” al-Shabana added.
The Friday’s terror-act was the outcome of constant and subtle Islamophobia that went unnoticed for years in the western countries, which led a White-supremacist terrorist Brenton Tarrant to carry out horrible terrorist attack against the Muslim community of New Zealand.
