Pakistani PM denounces Macron’s ‘Islamophobia’
In a letter, shared by the Pakistani government on Twitter, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that “growing Islamophobia” as witnessed in France encouraged extremism and violence. He called for a Facebook ban on Islamophobia.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Kahn accused the French president of “encouraging Islamophobia and attacking Islam”.
Khan complained that in France, Islam was being associated with terrorism. He denounced French President Emmanuel Macron because he had “attacked Islam” by encouraging the display of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
Kahn sent a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg calling for a ban on “Islamophobic” content. “I would ask you to ban Islamophobia and hate against Islam on Facebook the same way you did for the Holocaust,” Khan demanded.
Facebook has recently updated its hate speech policy to ban any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust.
“You cannot send a message that if hate messages against some are unacceptable, they are acceptable against others,” Khan said.
