NEW YORK: Pakistan has presented a 6-point mechanism in UN against Islamophobia and hate narratives.
Pakistan permanent envoy to UN Dr Maleeha Lodhi presented the 6-point plan in a ceremony held under Pakistan mission Tuesday.
The ceremony was organized by Pakistan along with Turkey, the Holy See and the UN.
UN Under secretary for anti terrorism attended the ceremony.
Addressing the ceremony Maleeha Lodhi said the mechanism will help reduce racism, Islamophobia and religious hatred. Anti Islam bias is major example of hate narrative.
“A particularly alarming development is the rise of Islamophobia which represents the recent manifestation of the age-old hatred that spawned anti-Semitism, racism, apartheid and many other forms of discrimination,” the ambassador said in her speech. Imran Khan has also stressed for launching efforts at international level against anti Islam bias, she added.
