Navideshahed: A senior religious authority in Croatia said Muslims in the country and in other parts of Europe are striving hard to campaign against the West's Islamophobia propaganda.

Deputy Grand Mufti of Croatia (highest religious authority of Muslims in Croatia) made the remarks in a meeting with the visiting Head of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, Ayatollah Taskhiri.

"At present we are witnessing Islamophobia and anti-Islamic views which have always existed in the West, and we are striving to challenge this viewpoint and display the real face of Islam to the westerners, instead," he continued.

Iranian officials have long warned against the efforts made by the West to spark or promote Islamophobia in the world.

Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Seyed Mohammad Hosseini in a meeting with Muslim envoys in Tehran in August blasted the efforts made by the West to spark Islamophobia in the world, and called on Muslims to unite and take proper cultural steps to thwart the plot.

"The western thinkers and politicians are taking anti-Islam stances. Hollywood is making movies against Muslims. Today, Islamophobia in the West is an undeniable fact," the Minister said addressing ambassadors of Islamic states here in Tehran on Saturday evening.

"They are fomenting hatred against Muslims," he warned, and added that the West is using pen and picture and cartoon to spark this hatred against Muslims.

The Iranian minister called on Muslim states to display "the real Islam" to the world, and in addition to their political and economic measures, take cultural steps to thwart the western plots and conspiracies.

In relevant remarks in April, Deputy Ambassador of Iran to the United Nations Eshaq Ale-Habib lashed out at the growing trend of insults to Islam in the West, and called on the United Nations to take proper measures to confront the spread of Islamophobia in the western societies.

Ale-Habib called on the UN and its Committee on Information to take practical steps to promote "religious tolerance" and to counter the growing Islamophobic trend in the West, and to stop the desecration of Islam.

Ale-Habib also condemned the recent act of burning Islam's holy book, the Quran, by an extremist US pastor, and said the incident runs counter to the UN's efforts to promote "religious tolerance and mutual respect between religions and cultures."
