The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly strongly urges all freedom-seekers and monotheists of the world, that alongside Muslims, to confront the filthy and imperialist politics of sacrilege and spreading hatred, to condemn this heinous act, which aims to promote extremism and violence in the world, spread Islamophobia, and war against Islam and Muslims, to emphasize the confrontation and decisive action against the abuse of the value of freedom of expression, and wants them to make it clear to the governments that support the evil and criminal individuals that insult the holy things, that this condemnation is obligatory and necessary for everyone.

World Assembly calls on all international bodies and organizations to adhere to their mission and duties in facilitating, paving the way for, and strengthening peaceful coexistence among human societies and to seriously avoid any movement and action that distorts the beliefs of the people and leads to the emergence of tension, discords, and hatred among people and causes the emergence and intensification of anomalies in human societies, so that they do not act against their defined missions and duties.

The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly demands its members and associates, believers in the Holy Quran, and all Muslims of the world, especially in Western countries, as well as rights and freedom seekers of the world that in various ways, such as issuing statements, holding numerous conferences and sessions, meeting and talking with authorities, intellectuals, and thinkers, etc., to enlighten public opinion, and draw their attention to the serious responsibility of spreading peaceful coexistence, respecting the rights of others, preventing hateful movements and insulting the sanctities and religious values of others, and promoting spirituality, ethics, and humanity in human societies.
