The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has directed the federal cabinet to take up the matter of terminating diplomatic relations with France.

According to the details, the High Court heard a petition to end diplomatic ties with France. The High Court has directed the federal cabinet to take a decision keeping in view the public sentiments.

Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani said that the government of Pakistan has condemned the French Incitement against Islam and has also summoned the French ambassador.

He said that a resolution has also been passed by the National Assembly. The court remarked that the passing of the resolution from the parliament is also the representation of the people.

After hearing the arguments the court wrapped up the case by sending the matter to the federal cabinet.

Earlier Prime Minister Imran Khan strongly condemned incitement against the Islamic religion and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H).

He took to his Twitter and said:

Hallmark of a leader is he unites human beings, as Mandela did, rather than dividing them. This is a time when Pres Macron could have put healing touch & denied space to extremists rather than creating further polarisation & marginalisation that inevitably leads to radicalisation.

Imran Khan said:

It is unfortunate that he has chosen to encourage Islamophobia by attacking Islam rather than the terrorists who carry out violence, be it Muslims, White Supremacists or Nazi ideologists. Sadly, President Macron has chosen to deliberately provoke Muslims, incl his own citizens,

Imran Khan added that:

through encouraging the display of blasphemous cartoons targeting Islam & our Prophet PBUH. By attacking Islam, clearly without having any understanding of it, President Macron has attacked & hurt the sentiments of millions of Muslims in Europe & across the world.

PM Imran said:

The last thing the world wants or needs is further polarisation. Public statements based on ignorance will create more hate, Islamophobia & space for extremists.

Let it be known that in recent weeks, French President Emmanuel Macron attacked Islam and the Muslim community, accusing Muslims of “separatism”. He described Islam as “a religion in crisis all over the world”.
