New York, Sep 27 (IANS) Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki Saturday deplored violation of minority rights by the Western governments, IRNA news agency reported. Addressing foreign ministers’ meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), he regretted that Muslims throughout the globe are facing anti-Islamic moves.

Condemning sacrilege of Islamic sanctities, the Iranian foreign minister stressed that such moves are aimed at distorting the fact that Islam is the religion of patience, peace and love, the report said.

Mottaki regretted that the Zionist atrocities still continue in Palestine and the legitimate rights of the oppressed are violated by the Tel Aviv regime.

Voicing support of the OIC for the Palestinian rights, he called for greater efforts by the body to make the Zionist regime end its occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has prepared a plan for holding a referendum in Palestine and the occupied territories to put an end to 60 years of occupation (by Israel), which is to be presented to the OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu soon, the report said.
