Manama, May 31 (BNA) The Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (SCIA) said it is watching with concern the increasing systematic campaigns to promote homosexuality in the world.
The council explained that such campaigns are led by global forces and organizations that work to distort human nature, destroy religious, moral and social principles, and infiltrate conservative societies, especially Islamic ones, to undermine their values.
In a statement following their meeting, the council stressed its categorical rejection of “satanic campaigns”, and called on Islamic countries, organizations, peoples and all supporters of common sense in all religions to stand united in the face of these shameful campaigns.
The statement said that those behind the campaigns should not be allowed to take advantage of sporting, artistic or cultural events, especially the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, to use them as a springboard for their misleading and destructive calls.
The international community must take serious and courageous stances and steps against it and engage in campaigns to defend and promote the values of virtue and common sense.
The council called for enhancing stability in Islamic societies by adhering to the divine law, upholding and protecting local customs, and strengthening solidarity.
