Pakistan passes resolution, Will summon Dutch envoy
Islamabad, Aug 27: Pakistan Senate adopted a unanimous resolution on Monday against a caricature competition in Netherlands, which can hurt the sentiments of Muslims worldwide due to the heretical nature of the content.
The resolution stated that a caricature competition will be held at the end of the year in Holland and Pakistani government should summon the Dutch envoy to record protest.
It was mentioned in the resolution that the government should raise the issue of blasphemous caricatures in the United Nations Security Council.
After passing of the resolution, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that very few Europeans understand hurting of Muslim sentiments over blasphemous content.
Khan said he understands the European mindset and they do not understand the love Muslims have for the Prophet (PBUH).
Imran further said that his government will prioritize the issue and take it up with global Muslim body, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
He said that a session of the OIC should be held to discuss the matter of blasphemous caricature competition. CNS
