UN Rights Chief Slams Trump's Anti-Muslim Remarks

Wednesday 9 December 2015
UN Rights Chief  Slams Trump's Anti-Muslim Remarks
Alwaght- The U.N. human rights chief has condemned US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's proposal that all Muslims be banned from entering the United States.
In a statement on Tuesday Zeid Raad al-Hussein termed the remarks  "grossly irresponsible," warning that it plays into the hands of extremist groups at the expense of ordinary Muslims who are also "eligible targets" of the extremists.  Zeid Raad al-Hussein expressed concern that he and other Muslims at the U.N. "could be victimized by these groups" as well as Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and others.
"So it's not a case of the West vs. Islam, it's a case of the violent extremists on the one hand vs. the rest, and that's the truth," he told a group of reporters.
The U.N. high commissioner for human rights said that "when political leaders rampage verbally through the lexicon to describe any minority in a way that is somehow pejorative, I think it's dangerous in this moment in time." He added that the leaders themselves may not be aware of the potential repercussions.
Earlier Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokesman said the U.N. chief also strongly opposes Trump's call.
Farhan Haq said Ban has repeatedly spoken out against all forms of xenophobia and statements against migrants, racial or religious groups "and that would certainly apply in this case."
While political campaigns have their own dynamics, Haq said, "we do not believe that any kind of rhetoric that relies on Islamaphobia, xenophobia, any other appeal to hate any groups, really should be followed by anyone."
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) condemned Donald Trump on Monday, saying the billionaire is exacerbating Islamophobia in the United States with inaccurate and inflammatory remarks in the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California. Trump said Monday that the U.S. should keep Muslims from entering the country.
“This is exactly what ISIS wants, to turn Americans against one another,” a representative of CAIR said. “We stand today united as Americans against stigmatization, against Islamophobia, against ISIS.”
