VIDEO: PM Khan draws ire over controversial remarks about Jesus Christ


Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday draw the ire of hundreds of social media users, including political leaders, after a video clip of his controversial statement regarding Hazrat Esa (AS) [Jesus Christ] went viral over the internet.

“Moses got some mention, but Jesus Christ has no mention in history,” he said while addressing the opening ceremony of the two-day International Rehmatul-lil-Alameen Conference in Islamabad.


Ever since the clip of the premier’s address was shared over social media, a number of netizens took to Twitter and criticised him for what they said was PM Khan’s “ignorance”

Among the many who condemned the remarks, was Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former minister Ahsan Iqbal.

“Quran has many references of Hazrat Isa (AS); how will trolls defend this crazy statement of IK?” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, a few, obviously, stepped in to defend PM Khan’s remarks and said that the statement “lacked context”.

It merits a mention here that the two-day conference titled, ‘Finality of Prophethood and responsibilities of Muslims in light of the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’, is the 43rd conference aimed at promoting religious harmony, tolerance, brotherhood and equality, respect for humanity, non-violence, unity, reconciliation and culture of dialogue.
