Anti-Muslim Hatred Reached “Epidemic” Level: UN Secretary General

India Tomorrow Web Desk

NEW DELHI: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that hatred against Muslims has reached “epidemic” proportions.

He made the remark at UN function to mark the Commemoration of the International Day to Combat Islamophobia.

 Guterres said, “A resurgence in anti-Muslim bigotry is certainly in-line with other distressing trends we are seeing globally: a resurgence in ethno-nationalism, neo-Nazism, stigma and hate speech targeting vulnerable populations including Muslims, Jews, some minority Christian communities, as well as others.” 

In his speech, Guterres said, “Minority communities are part of the richness of our cultural and social fabric, yet we see not only forms of discrimination, but also policies of assimilation that seek to wipe out the cultural and religious identity of minority communities”.

Quoting the Holy Quran, he said, “Nations and tribes were created to know each other,” suggesting that diversity richness should not be seen as a threat.
