Says bullying others is “appalling and barbaric” and “contrary to the doctrine of Islam

MAKKAH: The Muslim World League (MWL) denounced on Tuesday two attacks on Jewish boys committed by Muslim students in Australia, calling them “appalling and barbaric” and “contrary to the doctrine of Islam.”

Last week, Australian media broadcast images showing a Jewish student pressured to kneel and kiss the shoes of his Muslim classmate. According to local reports, the Jewish student was a 12-year-old from Melbourne.

In a separate incident, a 5-year-old boy was allegedly called a “Jewish cockroach” and was repeatedly bullied, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

In Islam, Judaism is considered a divine religion and Allah called Jews and Christians “the People of the Book,” said MWL Secretary-General Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa.

He reiterated the MWL’s condemnation of any abusive behavior toward anyone based on their religion, culture, ethnicity or color.
