In the name of Allah, The Gracious, The Merciful
All Praise is de to Allah Al-Mighty and may the Peace and Blessing be upon the prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions and followers , as to what follows:
The conference for the support of the final conference took place in Bahrain and the recommendations that followed are listed below:
The conference values the attitude of Arla Foods that declared its rejection of the pictures and was not in agreement for reasons for their publication. The Conference is of the opinion that it was a good start for opening a dialogue with this organization to establish a common ground to reach a common understanding.
This recommendation from the scholars is based on the announcement that Arla Foods had placed throughout the Middle East condemning the actions of the Danish Newspaper, as well as refusing to accept any excuse in this regard. Arla has been facing tremendous pressure and criticism for its position.
In appreciation for the bold stance taken by Arla and as a way to encourage other Danish companies to stand for justice, the scholars and Muslim leaders hope that good will result from this crisis. Allah Al-Mighty says, "Do not think that this is bad for you, but rather it is good for you", and, "You may hate something however Allah may bring forth from it a great deal good". We are keen to anticipate that this crisis will make it possible for many to learn more about the Prophet peace be upon him and his message, hope that this will help educate all nations about his great character, his generous personality, and his fairness in judgment.
As a result a committee has established communications with representatives of Arla who have established that Arla Foods is willing to cooperate to reach a solution for the current crisis.
The Conference executive have advised that Arla Foods should be withdrawn from the Boycott on Denmark, which includes the following brands: Lurpack, Puck, Three Cows, and Dano.
All Praise is due to Allah, and may the peace and blessing be upon the prophet Muhammad.
