Iranian Jewish lawmaker Moris Moâ€™tamed on Monday called on the â€œfollowers of all religionsâ€ to protest against any sacrilege against divine religions.
â€œIt is a rational principle in modern societies that anyone should respect the rights of others and be mindful of other religionsâ€™ redlines,â€ Moâ€™tamed told the Mehr News Agency.
â€œDuty is heavier for followers of Abrahamic religions to observe religious redlines and respect the beliefs of others because they enjoy the majority of the worldâ€™s religious makeup,â€ he observed.
Moâ€™tamed suggested â€œholding dialogue between Abrahamic religionsâ€ in order to confront the problem of insulting religious beliefs.
It has been a central theme of conferences and symposiums around the world and Iranian government has also taken steps to promote the idea in Iran, he added.
The Jewish lawmaker said if the followers of various religions work together, they can help prevent the desecration of sanctities.
Â â€œWhen a journalist, cartoonist or filmmaker realizes that their work is not popular, they will no longer feel motivated to continue,â€ Moris Moâ€™tamed stated.
