Derian meets Sheikh Ahmad Qabalan, Nigerian Ambassador

Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdullatif Derian met at Dar-al-Fatwa on Monday, with Excellent Jaafarite Mufti, Sheikh Ahmad Qabalan, with talks touching on affairs relevant to media and the impact of some TV shows on the Lebanese society.

"We discussed with Mufti Derian the necessity to hold a meeting for the high-level spiritual leaders in order to follow up and dwell on what is happening in media, regarding TV shows that constitute a violation of all the values and public manners affecting the Lebanese society," Sheikh Qabalan told reporters following the meeting.

"We agreed with Mufti Derian over the necessity to carry on coordination to follow up on these affairs, in collaboration with Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rahi, Druze Sheikh Aql Neem Hassan, and the Supreme Islamic Shia Council," he said.

"God willing, there will be a conference to tackle this issue," he added.

Separately, Derian met with Nigerian Ambassador to Lebanon, Goni Modu Zanna Bura, over the means to bolster relations between the two countries.
