PM Imran Khan Calls For Criminalizing Blasphemy In The West

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for Muslim-majority countries to band together to lobby Western governments to criminalise the insulting of Islam’s prophet.

In a televised address to the nation, Khan said he would lead a campaign of Muslim-majority countries to convince the Western countries on the issue of blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad.

Khan likened the issue to that of the Holocaust, saying the Western nations had understood that questioning the Holocaust hurt the sentiments of the Jewish community, and that it needed to treat the issue of insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad in a similar manner.

“We need to explain why this hurts us, when in the name of freedom of speech they insult the honour of the prophet,” Khan said.

“When 50 Muslim countries will unite and say this, and say that if something like this happens in any country, then we will launch a trade boycott on them and not buy their goods, that will have an effect.”

Meanwhile, negotiations between the Government and proscribed TLP works are underway and entered a second round. TLP released the police officials that they abducted a day earlier by attacking a police station.
