While voicing its displease in a statement on Friday October 23, 2020, OIC expressed surprise at the evil machinations of the French officials.
“The Organization of Islamic Cooperation is surprised by the official political discourse of some French officials, which hurts French-Islamic relations,” the statement reads.
“Against the background of the continued publication of blasphemous cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the OIC renews its condemnation of acts of terrorism in the name of religion, but denounces any justification for insulting religious symbols in the name of freedom of expression,” it adds.
The OIC stressed that it would continue to condemn the mockery of the Prophets, peace be upon them, whether in Islam, Christianity or Judaism.
It also decries associating Islam and Muslims with terrorism and urges the review of discriminatory policies that target Muslim societies, and offend the feelings of more than one and a half billion Muslims around the world.
