DHULUM – The National Society for Human Rights (NSHR) has urged the public to report any instances of racial discrimination directed at Saudi nationals or expatriates, and has called for studies into social problems that affect individual human rights such as favoritism, nepotism and tribalism.
“Everyone can help in preventing racism and promoting tolerance and moderation,” said Mufleh Al-Qahtani, the chairman of NSHR. “We need to work to cease categorizing people according to race, faith or color.”
King Abdullah, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, Al-Qahtani said, has played a significant role in establishing the principles of dialogue at home and abroad, “promoting tolerance regionally and internationally to help nations avoid devastating wars and instead turn to reason and peace”. – Okaz/SG
