An Iranian cultural official rejected some media reports alleging that he has called for a ban on the imports and sales of Buddha statutes in Iran, saying that his remarks have been “misquoted”.            

Some media reports have recently quoted Secretary of the Headquarters for Supporting and Protecting Cultural Works Saeed Jaber Ansari as saying that the statutes which represent the saints, beliefs and values of other religions than Islam, especially the Buddha Statutes, should be taken away from shop windows and their imports to Iran should be banned.

Speaking to FNA, Jaber Ansari strongly rejected such reports, and stressed that they are just the result of mis-interpretations.

When our news team contacted the Sri Lankan ambassador to Iran Mohammed Faizal confirmed that there is no such ban in Iran.
