PM for NA resolution on BJP leaders’ sacrilegious remarks

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday requested for a debate in the upcoming session of the National Assembly to adopt a resolution condemning the recent incident of BJP leaders’ blasphemous remarks. The prime minister requested the National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf to hold debate over the Namoos-e-Risalat (Peace Be Upon Him) in the upcoming session of the upper house of the parliament on June 13 (Monday), the media wing of PM’s office said in a press release. The prime minister while strongly condemning BJP leaders’ disrespectful comments, said with the adoption of a resolution in the National Assembly, they wanted to give a message to India and the rest of the world that they were ready to give any sacrifice for the sanctity of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). The debate should be held over this serious issue and to express boundless affection and love for the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him), he added. He said the sentiments of about 1.25 billion Muslims across the world were hurt with such profane remarks over which they have been strongly protesting. Meanwhile, President Dr Arif Alvi also condemned the disproportional use of force on Indian Muslim protestors in many cities across India on Friday. The president termed the brutal use of force against protestors, who were demanding the arrest and exclusion from party of two members of the BJP for using highly derogatory remarks and disrespecting the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him), as unjust and highly condemnable. The president said that violence against Muslims on flimsy pretexts by various Hindutva groups with complete impunity, and often under state patronage, highlighted the worsening trend of Islamophobia and extremism in India. Alvi called upon India to shun its Hindutva policies and stop targeting its minorities, hurting their religious sentiments and put an end to rising incidents of violence and spreading of hate against Indian minorities, especially Muslims.
