Islamabad, May 04 : The Jammu and Kashmir Council for Human Rights (JKCHR) has stressed the need to launch a full-scale aggressive diplomacy to dispel the misgivings and rehabilitate a good understanding with Europe and its constituency of influence.
Dr. Syed Nazir Gilani, JKCHR President, in a statement said that Pakistan should engage European Parliament at all levels and Kashmiris and Pakistanis settled in these countries should be encouraged and guided to start a people’s diplomacy with fellow Europeans of all faiths, in particular the people of Christian faith on the question of blasphemy law and Kashmir.
JKCHR President said that Pakistan is home for all major faiths and is a parliamentary democracy. There should be an interaction and dialogue with Christian community at home and abroad. This is a civilised way of dispelling all misgivings and best means to check any sinister interests. Our faith is incomplete without our faith in all the Abrahamic faiths. We should have no problem in treating all with equity and justice, he said.
“Christianity is one of the Abrahamic religions and Christians have no cause to blaspheme against Prophet (Peace Be upon Him). Muslims too have no cause to persecute Christians or members of any other faith or community in Pakistan. Neither the holy Quran nor the Constitution of Pakistan allows it,” the statement added.
