ISLAMABAD: The upper house of the parliament on Monday unanimously adopted resolution condemning publication of blasphemous cartoons in Netherlands.
As per details garnered, the resolution was tabled by Leader of the House Shibli Faraz.
The resolution bounds federal govt to lodge strong protest with Netherlands and used diplomatic prowess to raise this issue on all international forums.
The resolution also urges ministry of religious affairs to consult religious scholars for devising a mutual strategy on the issue.
In his first address to the Senate, Prime Minister Imran Khan stated the West deliberately hurts sentiments of the Muslim World via such sacrilegious content. “In West, such appalling acts are performed by those who hate Muslims and Islam”, Khan told the House.
Regretting absence of a strategy on the issue by Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Khan added Pakistan would leave no stone unturned to bring all Muslim countries on the same page on issue of sacrilegious caricatures.—NNI
