PM Imran Khan leaves a video message for the nation over blasphemous caricatures issue

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has left a video message for the nation over the issue of the blasphemous caricatures.

He said he would move the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) in an effort to raise the issue of blasphemous caricatures in the United Nations.

The prime minister said that the West doesn’t understand that our perspective towards religion is quite different from theirs.

"The matter of blasphemous caricature is an issue of every Muslim," he said. link link

Prime Minister Imran said that the only way the issue can be addressed is through a joint statement of all the Muslim countries in the United Nations through the OIC.

"We will be able to make the West understand if it's not only one Muslim country taking forward the issue or one Muslim country recalling their ambassador in protest but through a unanimous statement by the Muslim countries in the UN," he said.

The premier said that he has directed Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to speak on the matter with other countries and have meetings with the international community in the United Nations.
