Follow the Islamic way to save the world Prince Charles urges environmentalists

clipped from
Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic 'spiritual principles' in order to protect the environment.
In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man's destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions - but particularly those of Islam.
He said the current 'division' between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment - which goes against the grain of 'sacred traditions'.
Outspoken: Prince Charles speaks to Islamic studies scholars at Oxford University
Charles, who is a practising Christian and will become the head of
the Church of England when he succeeds to the throne, spoke in depth
about his own study of the Koran which, he said, tells its followers
that there is 'no separation between man and nature' and says we must
always live within our environment's limits.
His speech, merging religion with his other favourite subject, the environment, marked the 25th anniversary of the organisation, of which he is patron.
Bored: Not everyone in the audience was as interested as Prince Charles though
