UN Warns of ‘Misplaced Suspicions’ of Muslim Refugees, Migrants after Terror Attacks | Human Wrongs Watch

As last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut continue to reverberate round the world with calls to restrict refugee and migrant movement in the name of security, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on 20 November 2015 warned against “misplaced suspicions” about refugees and migrants, especially Muslims, who can help fight violent extremism.

“We must be on guard against such distortions and discrimination, which only play into the hands of terrorists trying to sow divisions and fear,” he told a previously scheduled UN General Assembly meeting devoted principally to Syrian asylum-seekers, in which he set out a roadmap to address the root causes and increase funding to manage the flow of refugees and migrants in general.
