MFA condemns M. Konvicka's event in front of the Embassy of Saudi Arabia


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic is deeply concerned by the provocative event organized by the group “Initiative of Martin Konvička” in front of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Sunday September 11, 2016.

Even though the organizers tried to present their activity as humorous, the MFA – just like on previous occasions – considers it a direct offense to a religious group. The worse for the fact that it took place at the same time as the most important Muslim holidays as well as the pilgrimage to Mecca. The organizers were well aware of this fact as the name of their event proves. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns in the strongest terms any similar activity, which spreads religious intolerance and brings rancor into Czech society thus damaging the image of the Czech Republic in the world.
