Siraj decries French mag’s announcement to reprint caricatures

PESHAWAR: Amir Jamat-e-Islami (JI), Sirajul Haq Wednesday strongly denounced the French magazines’ announcement to reprint sacrilegious caricatures.

“All these deeds are being carried out under the façade of freedom of expression,” Sirajul Haq regretted while addressing a press conference at Peshawar Press Club.

He said under a sick plan the sentiments are being hurt of one billion Muslims across the world.

The JI Amir called upon the leaders of Muslim states including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Saudi King Shah Abdullah and Turkish prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to stand together on this issue.

He also exhorted upon the European Union to take notice of the situation.
