Makkah Conference slams double standard in dealing with rights violations
Monday October 14, 2013 10:17 AM, IINA

The stoic silence maintained by the so-called champions of human rights and the double-standards practiced by some others came in for condemnation at the 14th Makkah Al-Mukarramah Conference on Human Rights Under Shariah and International Conventions which concluded here on Saturday.

The three-day conference, inaugurated by Makkah Governor Prince Khaled Al-Faisal on behalf of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Kong Abdullah on Thursday, called on the international community, the United Nations and war crime tribunals around the globe to punish the nations giving scant respect to human rights.

The conference urged stiff punishment for the Syrian regime of President Bashar Al-Assad for trampling human rights and for using chemical weapons on unarmed civilians.

It also condemned terrorist operations in Iraq and demanded that Iraq's independence should be respected and that no one should have a right to interfere in the domestic affairs of that country.

The participants also condemned the continuous Israeli atrocities on Palestinians and warned against plots to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque between Muslims and Jews.

"The United Nations should stop this aggression", they said.

The horrific oppression campaigns against Muslims in Myanmar were condemned as well.

"All countries should respect Muslims minorities' rights", the conference said.

The participants stressed that the Shariah was the first to uphold human rights long before international conventions. International conventions on human rights are made by humans and therefore need to be developed because they are not comprehensive.

The conference rebuffed the double-standard policy in international positions in dealing with human rights issues around the world.

It recommended that international organizations should benefit from the Shariah in dealing with human rights for men, women, children, orphans and labor. Islamic countries should uphold laws fighting human rights violations and be signatory to international conventions and treaties on human rights.
