(ANSA) - Rome, September 19 - Italian Foreign Minister Giulio
Terzi said Wednesday that religions must not be mocked after
French weekly Charlie Hebdo caused outrage in the Muslim world
by printing cartoons featuring Islam's Prophet Mohammed.
The development comes after a wave of violence sparked last
week by an American-produced film that allegedly ridicules
Mohammed.
Terzi said some people in the West were guilty of
"irresponsible sensationalism" by abusing "deep religious
sensibilities that must be respected" for personal advantage.
"Religions are fundamental, they are important for many
billions of people, and no one should allow themselves to mock
them or joke about these values," added the minister.
"Let's not forget that it is possible to prosecute those
who offend religion under Italy's criminal code.
"I think this should be a common principle to all the
countries of the world".
