Pakistan’s parliament urges govt to withdraw envoy from France over Prophet cartoon

Reuters Monday 26 October 2020

Pakistan’s parliament on Monday passed a resolution urging the government to recall its envoy from Paris over the publication of images of the Prophet Mohammad in France, accusing President Emmanuel Macron of “hate-mongering” against Muslims.

The National Assembly resolution, which is non-binding, came hours after the French ambassador in Islamabad was summoned to the foreign office for Pakistan to register its protest.

The developments were the latest expression of anger in the Muslim world over France displaying images of the Prophet Mohammad that Muslims consider blasphemous.

Forum thread from 2012:

So, this little furor continues. They persecute Christians in Pakistan, I’d remind everyone. I am not into disrespecting anyone’s faith or culture either.

I will see what French things I can buy.
