The Media Office of the Sheikh Aql and the Council of the Druze monotheistic faith (Tawhid) are keen to confirm that the images published on social media websites showing the religious uniform used by the Druze women are subject of filming a television series on OTV station, and that this issue was resolved in a positive manner with the administration of the TV station. The station’s management asserted that there was no intention for abuse and that the relevant images subject of the misunderstanding were omitted. The Media Office emphasizes the full adherence to the freedom of expression in media and the need for artful and cultural production to remain at the highest level, away from any insult to anyone, and called on social media users and followers to refrain from raising the subject or commenting on it or responding to its threads in order to achieve the target goal, especially that the proper way of handling the issue is already in place.
