Muslims cannot tolerate any disrespect and abuse against Prophet PBUH, PM Imran said.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday demanded apology from the extremists in West for deliberately indulging in abuse and hate against Prophet PBUH under the guise of freedom of speech.

The premier tweeted, “Let me make clear to people here and abroad: Our government only took action against TLP under our anti-terrorist law when they challenged the writ of the state and used street violence and attacking the public and law enforcers. No one can be above the law and the Constitution.

“My message to extremists abroad who indulge in Islamophobia and racist slurs to hurt and cause pain to 1.3 billion Muslims across the globe: We Muslims have the greatest love and respect for our Prophet PBUH who lives in our hearts. We cannot tolerate any such disrespect and abuse.”

“Those in the West, including extreme right politicians, who deliberately indulge in such abuse and hate under guise of freedom of speech clearly lack moral sense and courage to apologise to the 1.3 billion Muslims for causing this hurt. We demand an apology from these extremists.

“I also call on Western governments who have outlawed any negative comment on the holocaust to use the same standards to penalise those deliberately spreading their message of hate against Muslims by abusing our Prophet PBUH.”
