ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Monday said the French Ambassador to Pakistan had been summoned to the foreign office to register protest.
In a statement, Shah Mahmood Qureshi has urged the United Nations (UN) to take notice and action against the hate based narrative against Islam.
He said there was resentment in the world over the blasphemous caricatures. He said irresponsible statement of the French president had added fuel to the fire. He said nobody had the right to hurt the sentiments of millions of Muslims under the garb of freedom of expression.
The foreign minister said the seeds of hate that were being cultivated today will polarize the society and have serious consequences.
On the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the foreign minister said a comprehensive resolution will be presented at the next meeting of the OIC foreign ministers, proposing to observe 15th March as the international day against Islamophobia.
