ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday strongly condemned the publication of blasphemous caricatures in a French magazine and termed it an attempt to divide people and civilizations.
According to Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasnim Aslam, Pakistan believes that freedom of expression should not be misused as means to attack or hurt public sentiments and religious beliefs.
The spokesperson termed the blasphemous publication as an attempt to divide people and civilizations. She said there is a need to promote harmony among peoples and communities instead of reinforcing stereotypes and making people alienated in their own countries.
The Adviser to the Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs has also written a letter to the OIC Secretary General recommending a legal action to seek an apology from the French magazine and joint action by the Ummah to get criminalization of all acts of Islam phobia.
