EU condemns anti-Christian violence in Egypt, Malaysia

Catholic World News - January 28, 2010

The European Parliament has condemned recent violence against Christians in Egypt and Malaysia, urging the Egyptian government to “guarantee that Coptic Christians and members of other religious communities and of minorities enjoy the full range of human rights and fundamental freedoms-- including the right to choose and change their religion freely-- and to prevent any discrimination against them.”

Praising the recent Malaysian court decision that permitted Christians to refer to God as “Allah,” the Parliament also called upon Malaysian authorities to “carry out thorough and rapid investigations into reported attacks against places of worship and to bring those responsible to justice.”

The Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union has praised the resolution and urged Baroness Catherine Ashton, the EU High Representative for External Relations, to “translate this priority into action.”
