Ever since becoming the premier of Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan has been repeatedly raising the issue of Islamophobia and the issue of Kashmir and Palestine on every international platform. As a result, the premier has received a lot of praise.

Malaysian opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, has praised Prime Minister Imran Khan for taking a principal stand against rising Islamophobia.

In a tweet, on 23rd March, Ibrahim praised the efforts of Pakistan to bring to the world the problem of Islamophobia and how it hurts the sentiments of the Muslim community.  “I applaud the leadership shown by Pakistan and Prime Minister Imran Khan to have the United Nations General Assembly recognize March 15 as International Day to Combat Islamophobia”, tweeted Malaysian Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim.

“I do not underestimate the nefarious plots to denigrate Islam. I hope that with the passing of this resolution the international community would do more to expose these bad actors and reject all forms of discrimination,” said Anwar in a series of tweets.

“The resolution passed by the UNGA expresses deep concern at “the overall rise in instances of discrimination, intolerance, and violence, regardless of the actors, directed against members of many religions,” he said.

PM Imran Khan’s OIC speech appreciated

Talking about the speech of PM Imran Khan at the OIC conference in Islamabad, Anwar Ibrahim said: “In his speech at the Organization of Islamic Conference Foreign Ministers gathering in Islamabad PM Imran Khan stated that Muslims share part of the blame for allowing Islamophobia to spread and not doing enough to combat the perception that equates Muslims with terrorism.”

Sharing his thoughts further, Anwar Ibrahim said: “I believe that Muslims must strive to be a force for development, justice and peace in our societies if we are to succeed in breaking the perception that associate much of the Muslim world with injustice, abuse of power, corruption, and poverty.”

Ever since becoming the premier of Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan has been repeatedly raising the issue of Islamophobia and the issue of Kashmir and Palestine on every international platform. He had dedicated a big part of his maiden speech at UNGA for Islamophobia.
