The grand mufti of the Kingdom (of Saudi Arabia), Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-Asheik, has criticized human rights organizations for not practicing what they preach.
Al-Asheik questioned the role of the organizations in the recent turmoil prevailing in the Islamic countries.
He said that adversaries supply arms and ammunition to countries afflicted with war and sectarian tension in order to further weaken Islam and unity among Muslims.
In his Friday sermon at Imam Turki bin Abdul Aziz Mosque in Riyadh, the Grand Mufti said that enemies are taking advantage of the situation and urged Muslims to join hands in fighting such forces.
In the sermon, he cited a Prophetic “hadith” in which the Prophet, peace be upon him, told a man to “support thy brethren whether they are in the right or not.” The man then asked how he could stand in support of someone who is an oppressor. The Prophet replied “by preventing him from committing further injustice.”
