‘Whenever Muslims talk about their rights, world uses the terrorist card’, PM Khan

Imran Khan said that before 9/11, most suicide attacks were carried out by Tamil Tigers, who were Hindus. But no one blames Hinduism as a whole for their extremist acts. 

 

Expressing his views at an event in New York co-hosted by Pakistan and Turkey, Prime Minister Imran Khan shared his views on the rising Islamophobia and hate speech in the west. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and members of Pakistani delegation were also present at the meeting.

He said that it is imperative to put an end to the hate speech and rising anti-Islam sentiments. He also said that religion has nothing to do with terrorism. PM Khan said that terrorism became a supplementary tag with Islam after 9/11 attack. Western leaders often use the words “Islamic terrorism” and “Islamic radicals” for Muslims, particularly whenever the Muslim world talks about their basic rights.

 

“The moment you use the word Islamic radicals, it means that there is something in Islam that produces radicals,” PM Khan commented. 

Khan said that the West extremists also said that the suicide bombers carry out these heinous crimes because they are tempted to get virgins in heaven. This sort of brainwashing and labeling lead to rising negative sentiments.

“This sort of nonsense kept going on. The premier said anyone who knew about history was aware of the fact that desperate human beings throughout history have committed such attacks,” PM Khan lamented.

Imran Khan said that before 9/11, most suicide attacks were carried out by Tamil Tigers, who were Hindus. But no one blames Hinduism as a whole for their extremist acts.

He added that Japanese soldiers also carried out suicide attacks during World War II, but no one mentions that. However, the acts of the few have labeled entire Islam as ‘terrorist’ and the West frequently uses this card whenever Muslims talk about their fundamental rights. The labels are dished out despite Muslims being the most vulnerable community to hate speech.
