ISLAMABAD: According to Baaghi TV, a case was heard in the Islamabad High Court regarding the severance of diplomatic relations with France.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has sought an execution report on the October 28 judgment. The court ordered the submission of an execution report on December 9. Islamabad High Court adjourned further hearing of the case till December 9.
At the last hearing, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani heard the petition of the citizen. Petitioner’s lawyer said that Muslim countries have protested against the publication of blasphemous sketches in France. Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani remarked that the government of Pakistan has condemned it. The French ambassador has also been called back. A resolution has been passed by the National Assembly. The coming of the resolution from the parliament is also a representation of the people.
The Martyrs’ Foundation of Pakistan, through Tariq Asad Advocate, filed the petition. The petition lists the Federation of Pakistan as the Federal Foreign Secretary, the Prime Minister as the Principal Secretary and the Federal Secretary of Home Affairs as parties.
The petition asks the court to order the federal government to summon the French ambassador and compel the French government to apologize not only for publishing the blasphemous sketches, but also to demand a stop to future publishing of the sketches by the Charlie Hebdo magazine. The court should also order the federal government to sever diplomatic relations with France.
The court has been asked to order the federal government to officially boycott French products. The court also ordered the federal government to take steps to legislate for blasphemy internationally, making it a crime and a minimum sentence of life imprisonment.
For the first time, the French government sponsored the publication of blasphemous sketches. The Pakistani government has not yet taken effective action against the publication of blasphemous sketches at the official level in France. Prime Minister Imran Khan has condemned the publication of blasphemous sketches at the official level in France. The Pakistani government has not yet bothered to summon the French ambassador to the Foreign Office.
The petition further states that the publication of blasphemous sketches at the official level in France is a highly sensitive and serious matter. But in this case, the attitude of the government of Pakistan is very irresponsible. The negligence and irresponsible role of the government of Pakistan in this most sensitive issue is provoking the people.
