October 27, 2020

Minister for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Noor-ul-Haq Qadri has called upon all Muslim countries to join hands and effectively respond through diplomatic and political channels to the republication of blasphemous caricatures in France and its support by French President.

Talking to a private news channel, he said merely criticism by only few Muslim countries would put no pressure on France.

The minister said defending the display of such sketches by the French president is a matter of great concern as his statement is highly provoking.

He said the National Assembly has passed a resolution against it asking the OIC to boycott the French government.

He said an important decision to this effect would be made in the Cabinet meeting today.
