ISLAMABAD: Applauding Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said other Muslim leaders should also follow in the footstep of the Turkish leader against US move to recognize Jerusalem as capital of Israel.

Speaking to media after appearing before a Anti-Terrorism Court in connection with cases registered against him since 2014, he applauded Erdogan's calls for a summit of Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) and condemned the US move saying President Donald Trump's doesn't consider Muslim as human beings.
