U.N. Urges Criticism of Religion Ban

Ad Feedback

The U.N.'s top human rights body passed a resolution urging laws banning the criticism of religion.

Pakistan proposed the measure on behalf of all Muslim countries.

The resolution is against the "defamation of religion" in general although the only faith mentioned specifically is Islam.

A coalition of more than 100 secular and faith groups opposed the resolution saying it would have a chilling effect on free speech and would worsen relations between faiths.
