Pakistan condemns French magazine’s decision to reprint Prophet’s images

September 02, 2020

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday condemned in strongest terms the decision by a French magazine, Charlie Hebdo, to republish deeply offensive caricature of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

“Such a deliberate act to offend the sentiments of billions of Muslims cannot be justified as an exercise in press freedom or freedom of expression,” the Foreign Office said in a statement.

The Foreign Office said such actions undermined the global aspirations for peaceful co-existence as well as social and inter-faith harmony.
