OIC Condemns ISIS Threats and Forced Displacement of Christians in Iraq

The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Ameen Madani  condemned what the terrorist group, "The Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS)" is committing against innocent Christian Iraqi citizens in Mosul and  Nineveh including forced deportation under the threat of execution; thus further tearing apart the social fabric of the Iraqi people. 

The Secretary General added that this forced displacement is a crime that cannot be tolerated; and that the practices of ISIS have nothing to do with Islam and its principles that call for justice, kindness, fairness, freedom of faith and coexistence.  
Such atrocities also contradicts the principles of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation that call for the entrenchment of a culture of tolerance and affinity among all nations and peoples, he added. 
The Secretary General stressed that the OIC stands ready to provide the necessary humanitarian assistance to the displaced until they are able to return to their homes.
