He pointed out that PM Khan rightly highlighted the issue of Islamophobia, which has immensely affected the Muslims all around the globe. Adding that his speech has given him a ‘great sense of hope’ by shedding light on the ‘myth of radical Islam’.
“The bravest and the most courageous of actions that can be undertaken by a Muslim is when the word of truth is spoken against oppression and the opposition – and that is exactly what you [PM Imran] have done,” he said.
