The General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars, the highest religious body in Saudi Arabia, stressed through a statement issued today, Sunday, that “insulting the shrines of the Prophets and Messengers, may God’s prayers and peace be upon them, will not harm anything to God’s prophets and messengers, but rather serves those who hold extremist calls who want to spread an atmosphere of hatred among human societies.”

According to the agency “SPA”: “It is the duty of the wise in all parts of the world, institutions and individuals to condemn these abuses that have nothing to do with the freedom of expression and thought, but rather a despicable fanaticism, and a free service for those with extremist ideas.”

And she added in the statement that “the Islam sent by Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, came to prohibit any denigration or denial of any of the prophets of God, and also forbade opposing religious symbols in the words of God Almighty: (Do not insult those who call besides God and insult God an enemy without knowledge). “.

And she continued: “Islam is a command to turn away from the ignorant, and the biography of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, is speaking of that. His shrine, peace and blessings be upon him, and the shrines of his brothers from the Prophets and Messengers are preserved and sublime. God Almighty said: (I am your mockers).

She concluded by saying: “It is the duty of Muslims and every lover of truth and tolerance to spread the biography of the Prophet, peace be upon him, including mercy, justice, forgiveness, fairness, and endeavor for the good of all humanity. May God bless our Prophet Muhammad and his fellow prophets and messengers and peace.”

The issue of the Prophet Muhammad cartoons resurfaced again after a young man of Chechen origin named Abdullah Anzurov, 18, was killed on October 16, history teacher Samuel Patty, 47, in front of a preparatory school in the Conflans-Saint-Honorine suburb north of Paris. He beheaded with a knife and tried to threaten the policemen who arrived at the scene and killed the attacker with bullets.

Multiple sources said that the attack came after the teacher showed his students caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, while eyewitnesses reported that the attacker was chanting “God is Great” after killing Patty.

Against the background of these developments, the French President delivered a speech in which he described Batti as the “face of the republic”, pledging that France would not abandon the cartoons, while describing the Islamists in France as separatists, directed to take new measures to prevent the spread of extremism among Muslims in the country.
