Dutch anti-Islam firebrand Geert Wilders has confirmed that a Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) cartoon contest will be held in his party’s secure offices in Dutch parliament, after receiving approval for the event from security officials. The divisive right-wing politician and leader of the country’s largest opposition party, the Freedom Party, took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce the news.
The announcement received a decidedly mixed reception from the Twitterati. While some responded with supportive cartoons, others questioned the wisdom of such an event.
This event is extremely intolerable for us Muslims and why only Muslims, even for every sensible and decent fellow.
As it’s been labelled as freedom of speech, so I would like to question that where this freedom of speech vanishes when we see atrocities in Syria, Philistine, Iraq, Afghanistan and so on.
Why not any of you people raised their this “Freedom Of Speech” card in that matter?
Islam teaches us to respect other people’s sentiments and tolerance, and that’s what we do.
But while being this much tolerant and cautious towards others’ sentiments, emotions we are constantly being targeted not once but again and again.
The man you are trying to disrespect ( Our Beloved Prophet PBUH ) was the one who made all the best policies for human rights, did you see? it’s Human rights not Muslims’ rights.
In our Holy Book Qur’an it’s mentioned , that Prophet Muhammad PBUH has been sent among us as a blessing for entire mankind.
In early days of Islam, a jew lady used to throw garbage at Prophet Muhammad PBUH while he goes to Masjid for prayer and he never said a single word to that lady nor changed his path, in fact , when that lady didn’t practice this thing for a week He inquired about her being and on knowing that she’s ill went to her home and took care of her.
Impressed by His character, lady converted into Islam.
Do you have this tolerance? Nobody has it. We get angry on small things and he ignored this much disrespect.
Leave religious point of view, let’s talk on moral grounds.
Is it okay if I call you with bad names or mock your religion? definitely no! because it’s very pathetic to behave this way.
You people who belong to West often are found saying East people have no tolerance or acceptance of other’s beliefs and faiths and they have no sense of Human rights or they have no respect for other’s opinions.
But my question is, Does your this act proves you people any different?
Here I encourage and appreciate my governments’ step on this issue;
According to a statement issued by the Foreign Office, Pakistan’s Ambassador in The Hague has also been instructed “to forcefully raise the issue with the Dutch government along with Ambassadors of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states.”
The Foreign Office has also assured that Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi will lead the discussion of the matter in the upcoming meeting of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, scheduled to be held in September.
Pakistan’s Permanent Representatives to the United Nations in New York and Geneva have also been directed to take up the matter with the UN Secretary General and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Earlier today, the federal cabinet had also “strongly condemned this abominable and reprehensible plan,” in its maiden meeting.
Kindly respect every religion and our sentiments, it won’t cost anything but will help maintain peace.
