Islamabad, 7 June 2022 (TDI): Chairman of Pakistan Senate, Muhamad Sadiq Sanjarani on Monday announced that Senators would protest outside Indian Embassy against the blasphemous and derogatory remarks by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, after Friday prayers.
At the suggestion of Maulana Atta ur Rehman, Chairman Senate said that parliamentarians would register their protest in front of the Indian Embassy soon after the Friday prayers.
Sanjarani also planned to form a three-member delegation to raise issues at United Nations as this would discourage such a reoccurrence anywhere in the world.
Seeking permission to open discussion on the issue, Leader of the House, Azam Nazeer Tarar condemned sacrilegious comments about Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) by the BJP leaders.
He condemned it in the strongest terms, saying that the BJP leaders had not only hurt the feelings of Indian Muslims but the entire Muslim Ummah.
Dr. Waseem Shehzad, Leader of the Opposition, said Islamophobia had taken the most lethal form in India, and the Muslim Ummah should boycott the use of Indian products like the residents of some Middle Eastern countries.
Mushtaq Ahmad, a member of the Senate, said India wanted to rob the regional peace with religious disharmony. He proposed a call for an immediate summit of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) to give a collective response to India in a befitting manner.
Another member of the Senate, Ejaz Chaudhary of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, said ‘We should hold dialogue to control the burgeoning incidents of Islamophobia’.
Other senators also condemned BJP leaders’ derogatory remarks. Senator Dr. Asif Kirmani said an international drive should be launched to sort out the solution of blasphemous issues on a permanent basis, and that OIC & UN should be taken on board on this matter.
Pakistan’s National Assembly also unanimously adopted a resolution on Monday, strongly condemning the derogatory remarks uttered by India’s BJP leaders against Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
The resolution said that Muslims across the world have great love and affection for the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) as they must love Holy Prophet more than their parents and children.
The resolution urged the international community to immediately take notice of India’s anti-Muslim policy.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office also handed over India a strong demarche over the blasphemous remarks and conveyed Pakistan’s categorical rejection and condemnation of the highly blasphemous remarks about the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
