Pakistan has summoned France’s ambassador in Islamabad to condemn the ‘Islamophobic’ campaign, the country’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said in a statement on Monday.

The statement said that the reckless remarks of French President Emmanuel Macron had created a tense situation in Pakistan as well as in other countries across the world.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi also mentioned that Pakistan has proposed to discuss ‘Islamophobia’ at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) annual meeting on March 15 next year.

No one has the right to hurt the religious beliefs of millions of Muslims around the world. He called on the United Nations to take action to prevent such incidents.

A French history teacher showed a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in a class on freedom of expression. France claims that the teacher was killed after the incident. Then the President of France made various hateful remarks about Islam.
