Action taken against TLP for challenging the state writ by them: PM


ISLAMABAD:   Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said his government took action against Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) under terrorism laws when it challenged the writ of the state.

PM said in his tweet Saturday “ I want to make it clear on people in and outside Pakistan action was taken against TLP when writ of state was challenged by it and people and law enforcement agencies were attacked and street violence was committed.

He went on to say no one is above law and this should be known to all.

He further said in his tweet “ it is his message to the extremists who are in other countries and are involved in Islamophobia that the sentiments of 1.30 billion Muslims all over the world are hurt due to Islamophobia.

He said those doing so under the guise of freedom of speech, clearly lack moral sense and courage to apologize to the Muslims for causing this hurt. We demand an apology from these extremists.

He said the Muslims have the greatest love and respect for holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Sallam Khatim un Nabiyeen who lives in our hearts. He said we cannot tolerate any disrespect and abuse against the holy Prophet

It is our demand that these extremists should apologize, he underlined.

Imran Khan called upon the 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 (Peace Be Upon Him).
