U.N. HRC passes resolution against religious defamation

This news article comments on a resolution that has just been pushed through the United Nations Human Rights Council that promotes a global prohibition on the defamation of religion. It was supported mainly by Islamic nations as a response to the "Danish Mohammed cartoons" controversy.

It mentions only Islam and no other religions, and has already begun to draw alot of criticism from other human rights organisations as well as Japan, Canada, South Korea and many European nations.
