Vienna, June 30 (SURYAA/WAM) A group of international citizens and activists from several countries have launched a campaign to combat the Qatar government's funding of global terrorism.

In a statement announcing the launch of the "Global Campaign Against the Qatari Financing of Terrorism" outside Qatar's embassy in Vienna on Friday, activists said that the global campaign stands against extremist practices of terrorist organisations financed by Qatar.

"Qatar's government provides material and logistical support to terrorist organisations as well as hosts their leaders in its territory.

"In addition, Qatar is adopting radical and hateful rhetoric of extremism that goes against the culture of pluralism and tolerance towards various ethnic and religious groups, violating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights..," the statement said.

The campaign also aims to organise international activities for the UN and other forums focusing on the social and cultural impact of terrorism and extremism.

"One of the most important objectives of the campaign is to spread the culture of diversity, pluralism, tolerance and peace in the face of extremism that has spread in recent years, primarily due to Qatari funding," the statement noted.
