UN Resolutions on Combating
the Defamation of Religions
(2003/4) on Combating the Defamation of Religions
Nations Commission on Human Rights has issued a Resolution (2003/4) on
Combating the Defamation of Religions. The Resolution "calls upon the
international community to initiate a global dialogue to promote a culture
of tolerance based on respect for human rights and respect for religious
diversity and urges the States, non-governmental organizations,
religious bodies and the print and electronic media to support and promote
such a dialogue".
Particularly highlighted is the Muslim
tradition, which, since the events of 11th September 2001, has, in some
places, suffered from discrimination.
