Islamabad - Pakistan Muslim League President Senator Ch Shujat Hussain has said that the American blasphemous film amounts to showing worst type of disrespect to the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) and it should be condemned in the strongest possible manner.
Talking to the journalists on Tuesday at his residence, Ch Shujat Hussain said that no sensible person could tolerate the manner in which disrespect had been shown for the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) in the film, no matter to which religion he belongs.
He said this was the reason that believers of all religions were strongly condemning this blasphemy film all over the world. He said a common man thinks that this film was against Islam, in fact, the way the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) had been portrayed in the film nobody could even imagine and tolerate that.
Ch Shujat Hussain said that the blasphemous film had nothing to do with the freedom of expression and in fact it was an open act of terrorism. He said such acts would threaten world peace and as such it was imperative that those responsible for this heinous and condemnable act should be treated as terrorists and given the harshest possible punishment.
He said in this respect, the United Nations, Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) and the US Government should take practical steps so that those trying to destroy the world peace might be exposed.
Ch Shujat Hussain said the government instead of merely lodging protest on paper should pressurise the USA for taking direct action.
