KSA Warns of Racist and Anti-Cultural Rhetoric

Geneva, The Kingdom Saudi Arabia has repeatedly warned of racist and anti-cultural rhetoric at the national level, and has called on some governments to adopt balanced rhetoric and policies that contribute to integrate Muslims into the societies of these countries.

This came in a speech delivered by Head of Human Rights Department of the Permanent Delegation of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations and International Organizations Dr. Fahd bin Obaid Al-Mutairi in the panel discussion on alleviation of the escalating of national populism and the ideologies of racial superiority and fighting against it in the 40th Session of Human Rights Council in Geneva.

At the beginning of the speech, Al-Mutairi expressed the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's deepest condolences to the victims of the terrorist attack in the Christchurch mosques in New Zealand.

Al-Mutairi expressed concern about some racist speeches and policies in some countries, including Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Britain, Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

Dr. Al-Mutairi expressed the KSA's deep concern about the leniency of some of those who support the rhetoric of extremism, hatred and violence, as there are those who declare such despicable speeches in some parliaments of these countries, while welcoming the pretext of freedom of opinion and expression, calling on these countries to pass laws that limit racism against Muslims.
