Alvi slams French president over ‘patronising’ blasphemous acts
ISLAMABAD: President Dr. Arif Alvi on Friday condemned attacks on holy and revered personalities of Islam in the European countries.
Addressing the opening session of National Rehmatul-lil-Alameen Conference held to mark Eid Miladun Nabi (SAWW) in Islamabad, he said those indulging in such acts have no realisation and regard for the sentiments of the Muslims.
Patronising blasphemous acts at state level will only create friction in their own societies, President Alvi said in reference to French President Emmanuel Macron’s Islamophobic comments.

He lauded religious scholars for playing their role in the successful fight against Covid-19 and expressed the resolve that Pakistan will emerge as a strong nation.
