Pakistan churches back UN on defamation call: CEN 4.29.08 April 29, 2008

THE NATIONAL Council of Churches in Pakistan (NCCP) has backed the UN Human Rights Council’s call for legislation forbidding the defamation of religion.

On April 16, the NCCP voiced its concern over “the mischievous acts, maligning the Islamic faith in the name of modernisation, secularism and so-called freedom of expression.” Freedom of speech should not be used to hurt the feelings of Muslims, said the group’s chairman, the Anglican Bishop of Iran and in the Persian Gulf, the Rt Rev Azad Marshall.
