Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Iyad Madani has said that freedom of the press and expression is an important issue as it expresses the heartbeat of citizens and their concerns.

“But such freedom of expression as a way to offend religions and their symbols, is totally unacceptable,” said OIC chief.

Speaking at Media Forum on the African Continent” held by the Moroccan ministry of communications and the OIC over a span of three days in Marrakesh, Madani said that, “Interpreting the term ‘freedom of expression’ should not be translated as a human right if it evokes hatred on the grounds of religion, color or race.

“ The Muslim community all over the world will not accept any compromise on its Islamic values,” he added
