France bans campaign against anti-Muslim hate speech
(MENAFN) The Turkish parliament representative blamed France for being untruthful, on Sunday, following its ban of a campaign started by the Council of Europe which fights hate speech against Muslims.
Mustafa Sentop, while presenting at the 143rd Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Spain, made commentary on France’s act for barring a campaign kicked off by the Council of Europe to end discrimination.
He stated, “We have to expose this hypocrisy,” highlighting that France objected to the campaign in spite of it including a huge number of Muslims.
He further said, “Turkey will always stand by all the oppressed, aggrieved communities and people, whether or not they're Muslim,” adding “the Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Division of the Council of Europe launched a very valuable campaign within the framework of combating discrimination against women wearing headscarves.”
