The recurrence of such Islamophobic incidents raises serious questions about the legal framework that allows hate-based acts.
As a leading member of the OIC, Pakistan has demanded an urgent discussion on this important issue in the United Nations Human Rights Council. We also call for credible and concrete measures to curb the growing incidence of xenophobia, Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred.”
