Geneva, March 08 – The State of Qatar has urged all countries, organizations and actors in civil society to intensify their efforts to promote understanding, expand the horizons of continuing dialogue, and put an end to random targeting of religions and cultures, as well as to consolidate tolerance and coexistence among different religions and peoples. This came in a speech delivered by the Third Secretary of Qatar‘s Permanent Mission in Geneva Jassim Sayyar Al Mawaddah at the 22nd Session of the Human Rights Council, currently being held in Geneva, under the item number (3) on “interactive dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion and belief.” Al Mawaddah expressed Qatar‘s strong denunciation of incidents of discrimination, negative stereotypes, stigma, incitement to religious hatred, intolerance and violence against Muslims, as well as distortion of the Islamic religion, and its figures that have occurred in many parts of the world, contrary to international standards and instruments of human rights.
