Manama, May 31 (BNA): The Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (SCIA) said it was monitoring with concern the growing systematic campaigns to promote homosexuality in the world.
Such campaigns are led by global forces and organizations that strive to distort human nature, destroy religious, moral and social principles, and infiltrate conservative societies, especially Islamic ones, to undermine their values, the Council said.
In a statement following their meeting, the Council stressed its categorical rejection of the "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 such reprehensible campaigns.
Those behind the campaigns should never be allowed to take advantage of sporting, artistic or cultural events, especially the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, to use them as starting points for their misguided and destructive calls, the statement said.
The international community should take serious and courageous stances and steps against them and should engage in campaigns to defend and promote the values of virtue and common sense.
The Council called for reinforcing stability in the Islamic societies by adhering to God’s law, upholding and protecting local customs, and strengthening solidarity.
