ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan in a statement on Saturday said the government took action against the Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP) under anti-terrorism law when it challenged the writ of the state and used street violence.
“The TLP attacked the public and the law enforcers. No one can be above the law and the constitution,” he tweeted.
The prime minister said the extremists abroad who indulged in Islamophobia and racist slurs hurt and caused pain to 1.3 billion Muslims across the globe. He said those doing so under the guise of freedom of speech, clearly lacked moral sense and courage to apologise to the Muslims for causing this hurt. “We demand an apology from these extremists.”
“The Muslims have the greatest love and respect for holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Sallam Khatim un Nabiyeen who lives in our hearts,” he said adding that we cannot tolerate any disrespect and abuse against the holy Prophet (SAWW).
Imran Khan called upon the western governments who had outlawed any negative comment on the holocaust to use the same standards to penalise those deliberately spreading their message of hate against Muslims by abusing our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him).
