Govt stands united with nation in protest against anti-Islam acts: Malik



Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Wednesday strongly condemned the publication of blasphemous material against Islam, saying the government stood united with the nation in protest against the negative move.
Talking to media after the inaugural session of a peace conference organised by the NGO Bardasht, he requested the nation, clerics and religious parties to protest in a peaceful manner, adding that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) would join the protest demonstrations against the anti-Islam film on Friday. “It is not a matter of one sect but that of the entire Muslim Ummah,” he said, adding that the entire nation was one as far as the sanctity of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was concerned.

Malik appealed to the United Nations to frame laws to stop publication and circulation of blasphemous material against Islam. He said disrespecting other’s beliefs was not allowed in any religion and such incidents caused hatred and destruction in society. Malik said he would also brief the cabinet about the steps taken to block blasphemous material on the Internet.

Regarding the situation in Karachi, the interior minister said several terror plots had been thwarted due to effective security measures. “Our enemy is out to de-stabilise Pakistan by triggering unrest on ethnic and sectarian basis. We are fully alive to the situation and all available resources will be utilised to foil their designs,” he said.

Malik said mobile phones were being used in terrorism, adding that the government was preparing a policy in consultation with all stakeholders to prevent misuse of the technology. He also asked the western countries to stop favouring enemies of Pakistan and giving them political asylum.

Earlier, Malik and PPP General Secretary Senator Jahangir Badr, both terming the recommendations of Bardasht Peace Conference as timely and valuable, pledged to take its draft to the National Assembly for legislation. They were addressing as chief guests for the inaugural and concluding sessions respectively of the sixth and final peace conference organised by Bardasht on Wednesday.

Both the chief guests lauded the efforts of Bardasht Chairperson Nilofar Bakhtiar in taking measures for restoring peace in the country through arranging seminars, conferences and offering proposals for law-making through her organisation. They added that tolerance was the only way to unity and peace in the country. Malik said the country faced an imposed war, fighting terrorism at the cost of its own people for world peace and needed tolerance and respect for all religions to make peace happen. He said the government would second all recommendations sent by the non-governmental organisations, including Bardasht, for maintaining peace in the country.

Parliamentarians, activists, educationists and other important members of society spoke on the occasion and shared their views with regard to the present scenario. Separately, Balochistan Minister for Information Younus Mullazai said that Malik would visit Balochistan to review the situation in the flood-battered areas.

Talking to media at DGPR office, he said Malik had scheduled his visit to Balochistan in the coming days. Balochistan government in collaboration with the federal government is making all-out efforts to rescue the masses hit by the flash floods in northern and eastern areas of the province, he added.
