PM reiterates need to unite Muslims against blasphemous caricatures issue


ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that he would move the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) in an effort to raise the issue of blasphemous caricatures in the United Nations (UN).

In a video message, the premier said West did not understand that the perspective Muslims had towards religion was quite different from the one they had.

“The matter of blasphemous caricature is an issue of every Muslim and we need to tell the West that they cannot hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims around the globe,” he said.

PM Khan also said that after bringing all Muslims on the same page, a protest would be recorded against the handful of people who deliberately hurt the religious sentiments of the Muslims and added that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had already started contacting his counterparts across the Muslim world in this regard.
