While addressing the National Rehmatulil Alameen Conference at the occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi on Friday, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Muslim countries should unite and form a strategy to counter the ever-growing Islamophobia in the western world. Imran said that he will take the lead in uniting the leaders of the Muslim countries.
Khan said that the western countries have no knowledge of the sentiments of the Muslims and Islam as a religion. He added that it is the duty of Muslim leaders around the world to educate the western countries of the sentiments of the Muslim community.
Earlier, Khan penned letters to the Muslim leaders across the world, urging them to demonstrate unity on the matter that has hurt the sentiments of Muslims worldwide. Khan condemned the Islamophobic remarks of French President Emmanuel Macron and termed the blasphemous cartoons as unacceptable and intolerable.
