The country’s leading English newspaper “The Nation” has issued an apology for the cartoon of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The cartoon was published by the time when the premier was addressing the session at United Nations General Assembly.

The newspaper said in the public apology: “We would like to apologize for the cartoon that appeared on our pages. The artwork fell short of our standards and does not reflect our editorial policy.”

The apologetic statement by The Nation also regretted that it should never have happened. “We are proud to be nationalistic paper, and we regret sincerely the attention taken by an artwork that was inappropriate, especially at the time of the UN General Assembly session taking place in New York.

The newspaper reiterated that steps have been taken to ensure our internal procedures and once again extended the sincere apology for the indecent move.

The cartoon that was published by the paper was deemed offensive by the minister for human rights and also invited the public outrage at large.

The premier in his address at New York stressed that religion has nothing to do with terrorism. “The world must understand Muslim sensitivities for Islam and the utmost reverence for the Holy Prophet PBUH,” Khan said while speaking on the Islamophobia.

He also called for effective measures to be undertaken to counter the hate agenda that is continued under the guise of freedom of expression.

  • اس خبیث نون لیگی رمیزہ نظامی سے میرا سادہ سا سوال یہ ہے کہ اگر پی ٹی آئی کا کوئی کارکن لاہور چیرنگ کراس پر اسکے تمام کپڑے اتار کر الف ننگا کر دے اور چوبیس گھنٹے تک جب تک ساری دنیا اسکا نظارہ نہ کر لے اسے وہاں سے ہلنے نہ دے لیکن بعد میں پارٹی کا ترجمان معزرت کر لے کہ یہ ہماری پارٹی پالیسی نہیں ہے تو کیا اس فاحشہ عورت کو یہ معزرت قابل قبول ہو گی ؟؟؟؟؟؟
