Senator seeks end to attacks on Muslims

 
June 13, 2021

LAHORE : Senator Rana Maqbool Ahmad has warned that anti-Muslim bias with intent to murder was on the rise in the so-called civilized Western countries which is evident from the premeditated murder of Muslim family in Canada in an act of terrorism.

The Senate of Pakistan should urge the PTI government to ensure a road map to prevent hate attacks on Muslims in the West by making concrete efforts with other Muslim countries, he said in an adjournment motion tabled in the Upper House on Friday whose copies were provided to the media.

Senator Rana Maqbool, in his motion, lamented that the murderous attacks on innocent Muslims were on the rise but, unfortunately the response was reduced to mere media condemnation rather than taking concrete action to stop recurrence of such incidents. He recalled that no exemplary action had been taken against the perpetrators and no relief provided to the Muslim victims in more than last two decades, necessitating an international strategy to arrest the growing violent attacks on Muslims. Otherwise, he feared, the reaction could culminate in wider bloodshed engulfing many countries. He demanded that the Western countries needed to be sensitised to respect and honour the lives and properties of Muslims to maintain global peace and harmony.
