WebPublicaPress (UNITED NATIONS) New York - Hatred and discrimination against Muslims have risen to the point that they have reached “epidemic proportions,” United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned. Guterres described the sharp rise in intolerance towards Muslims as part of a broader global turn towards nationalism and moving away from minority rights.

“The resurgence of intolerance towards Muslims is certainly in line with other disturbing trends we are witnessing globally: the resurgence of ethno-nationalism, neo-Nazism, stigmatization and hate speech directed at vulnerable populations, including Muslims, Jews, some minority Christian communities, and others. , ”Guterres said at a UN event marking the International Day against Islamophobia.

Protection of minorities

He also said that minority communities need additional protection.

“Minority communities are part of the richness of our cultural and social fabric. However, we can see not only forms of discrimination but also assimilation policies that seek to erase the cultural and religious identity of minority communities, ”he added.

The UN Secretary-General Guterres quoted verses from the Qur’an, saying that diversity is a treasure for all mankind.

“As the Holy Qur’an reminds us: peoples and tribes were created to get to know each other. Diversity is wealth, not a threat, ”said the UN chief.

International Day agains Islamophobia

The International Day against Islamophobia, which is being held for the first time this year, is being marked after the attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15, 2019, when 51 people were killed and 49 wounded.
