TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran condemned the insults leveled against the prophet of
Islam in the US and European movies and magazines, and called on the
Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to compile a convention to prevent
such blasphemous acts.

Speaking to reporters in his weekly press conference in Tehran on Tuesday,
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast deplored certain
western media for promoting and supporting sacrilegious acts against divine
sanctities and the prophet of Islam.

"We want those who are behind this move to go on trial and be punished and
we expect the OIC to take urgent action to compile a convention to prevent
such acts and don't allow these publications to create a rift among divine
religions," he underlined.

His remarks came after a number of western movies and cartoons were released
in the western media in recent years which insulted the prophet of Islam and
Muslims.

In September, French weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of Prophet
Mohammad (PBUH). The publication of the offensive cartoons came amid
widespread outrage over a US-made film that insulted the prophet of Islam.

The anti-Islam movie drew condemnation from numerous countries, including
Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Iran, Yemen,
Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Morocco, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, etc.

And unfortunately again, a French journal has recently announced its
intention to release a number of sacrilegious cartoons against the prophet
of Islam on Wednesday.
