(Reuters) - Egypt's president and other Muslim leaders should demand the U.N. criminalize contempt of religion after the release of an anti-Islamic film and cartoons which demonstrate growing racism, said the leader of the biggest ultra-orthodox Islamist party.
Despite doctrinal and political differences with President Mohamed Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafist Nour Party played a key role in supporting it during presidential elections in June.
Led by Emad Abdel Ghaffour, it now ranks as the second-largest party in parliament and plays a formidable force in Egypt's new politics.
"We call for legislation or a resolution to criminalize contempt of Islam as a religion and its Prophet," said Ghaffour, one of four permanent assistants to the president, on Saturday.

Why should the rest of the world bow to Islam? Who is the U.N. to set laws for the sovereign nations?
Jim, can you put op a statement for all us to sign on the front page that we as Americans are not, nor ever will be bound by any UN dictate to kiss islamic ass? The message needs to get out there that we the people arent about to comply with this crap.
We need a million insulting films. Then they can get over it.
Never apologize for our First Amendment rights. Spent 70 grand telling them they are backwards dumba$$es.
So will they also support a law or resolution outlawing the contempt of Judaism? Sauce for the goose...
So go ahead and make it illegal and millions will willfully and knowingly break the law.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
To hell with the UN.
The UN has absolutely no legal authority to anything like that or to enforce that
Ghaffour is looney as a toon.
Practice what you preach Ghaf.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of Islamic countries, something like that could go far.
I dont get it...Muslimes pray 5 times a day.
If Allah is so powerful why do Musilmes always
either try to redeem themselves or get Man to help them?
They live miserable lives in arid, dirty sh!tholes of a country and couldn’t not get by without assistance from the West.
And they wonder why the rest of the sane world doesnt want the “blessings” of Allah?
