PM urges OIC for making world understand deep love of Muslims for Holy Prophet (SAW)

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has urged the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to work together for making the international community understand the deep-rooted love and reverence of all Muslims for the Holy Prophet Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Sallam Khatimu-un- Nabiyeen and the Holy Quran.

The premier was talking to the Islamabad-based ambassadors of the countries belonging to the OIC. He underlined the need for instituting legal safeguards aimed at protecting the sensitivities of all religious groups. He also underscored the imperative of OIC’s collective efforts to project the true image of Islam, and its message of peace and tolerance.

Imran Khan reaffirmed that Pakistan remained committed to dialogue and cooperation with all members of the international community for promoting universal values of tolerance, mutual respect and peaceful co-existence among all nations and peoples.

Recalling the two letters addressed by him to the leaders of the Islamic world last year, the prime minister briefed the envoys on Pakistan’s efforts at the international level to create awareness about Islamophobia and the need to collectively address the phenomenon.

Imran Khan stressed that Pakistan’s initiatives are aimed at building mutual understanding and promoting inter-faith harmony. Noting that Islamophobic acts fan inter-religious hatred and disharmony among civilizations, he called for addressing the underlying reasons for the rise in such incidents worldwide.

The prime minister said falsely equating Islam with radicalism and terrorism is leading to the marginalization and stigmatization of Muslims. He emphasized that the vilification of Islamic precepts and religious personalities, wrongly justified under the garb of the right to freedom of expression or opinion, hurts the sentiments of 1.5 billion Muslims around the world.
