Qatar's Cabinet on Wednesday condemned and denounced remarks made against Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) by the now suspended or dismissed officials of India's ruling party.
Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Sulaiti said the Cabinet ministers felt the remarks constituted a "grave insult to Islam", were a provocation to Muslims all over the world and "completely contradict the values of tolerance, coexistence and civilised behaviour".
The Cabinet, while expressing its categorical rejection of these irresponsible remarks that ignore the reality of Islam and its major constants, called on everyone to focus on bringing people together, strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation between countries, and respecting all religions, and to stay away from everything that would incite hatred, inflame feelings of hostility, and sow discord among the peoples.
The Cabinet considered the topics on the agenda as follows: First - The Cabinet approved a draft law amending some provisions of Decree-Law No. 17 of 2010 organizing the National Human Rights Committee, and referring it to the Shura Council.
Second - The Cabinet approved a draft Amiri decision establishing and organizing the Police Academy.
The preparation of this draft decision comes within the framework of the establishment of an integrated academic structure represented by the Police Academy, which is concerned with developing higher police education and research studies on legal and security sciences and related disciplines, preparing qualified competencies to meet national needs in the security fields, and raising competencies and job skills.
The draft included the objectives of the Academy, its management system, its affiliated colleges and institutes, the academic degrees awarded by the Academy, and other provisions related to the Academy's work.
Third - The Cabinet approved a draft multilateral technical memorandum of understanding between the authorities to investigate aircraft accidents and incidents for member states in the Middle East and North Africa under the framework of the regional cooperation mechanism.
