Geneva, SPA :
Faisal Bin Hassan Trad, the Kingdom's Permanent Representative to the United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva, confirmed that Islamic law necessitates Justice with all human beings.
This came in the Kingdom's speech before the Human Rights Council during the interactive dialogue with the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief, Heiner Bielefeld.
With regard to the exercise of worship for non-Muslims, Ambassador Trad said that the Kingdom is the destination of Muslims around the world as every year more than 10 million Muslims go to it to perform Hajj and Umrah.
He stated that all the Kingdom's citizens are Muslims, and all of the non-Muslims come to it for the purpose of business or work according to fixed-term contracts, citing that laws of the Kingdom ensured its residents free exercise of worship in private places, with instructions and regulations issued to ensure the exercise of this right within their houses and within the premises of diplomatic missions, noting that these instructions have been circulated to all concerned bodies.
