Ahmad Badr el Din Hassoun called Islam as the religion of blessing and affection saying,” This award is a message to those who are clad in Islamic cloth while encourage others to kill people and destroy cities.”
He criticized satellite channels which encourage people to kill others under the name of Islam and said,” He who wears the cloak of religion should be an example of blessing for all same way that the prophet of Islam was.”
Syrian cleric called the award as an answer to anti-Islam invasions which try to picture the holy religion as a religion of terror, massacre and sword.
Referring to the World Islamic Human Rights Award as a proof for the failure of those who have spent the past 5 years struggling to project a horrible image from Syrian nation, government and political leaders and added,” Syria, in contrast with human rights organizations in Geneva, giving a cold shoulder to the killing of numerous refugees in the sea, knows the true meaning of human rights.”
