Pakistan summoned the French ambassador to the Foreign Office to protest the publication of the blasphemous sketches, while protest was also recorded on the French president’s blasphemous statement.
According to details, the French ambassador was summoned to the Foreign Office for publishing blasphemous sketches in France. The summons was issued by DG South Asia Zahid Hafeez.
Pakistan strongly protested against the publication of blasphemous sketches by France and handed over a letter of protest to the French Ambassador and Special Secretary Europe.
A Foreign Office spokesman said the protest was also recorded over the French president’s blasphemous statement. Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had said in his statement that blasphemous sketches are causing outrage all over the world. Irresponsible statements of the President of France added fuel to the fire. This is not the first time. Some time ago, Charlie Hebdo published blasphemous sketches. Sometimes, there are incidents of burning the Holy Quran. Sometimes, we came to know that a decision is being taken to ban the hijab.
Announcing the important announcement, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that at the next meeting of OIC Foreign Ministers, I will present a comprehensive resolution in this regard on the directive of the Prime Minister, which includes a suggestion of commemorating March 15 as the International Day Against Islamophobia.
