PM directs to block blasphemous content on social media

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday directed Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali to take all possible measures to block blasphemous content on social media.

Terming ‘blasphemous’ content on social media as a “nefarious attempt to play with the emotions of the Muslim Ummah”, the Prime Minister instructed authorities to take effective measures to remove all blasphemous content from social media and prevent any such content from circulating on the digital space in future.

He also called for the authorities to track down those circulating blasphemous content on social media.

“All [concerned] institutions should trace the perpetrators behind such content and ensure they are handed out strict punishment in accordance with the law,” the Prime Minister said.

The PM also directed that those found to be utilising the blasphemy laws for their personal gains must be held strictly accountable. 

He said the feelings of Muslims, when it comes to the honour of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), must be respected.

“The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the benefactor of entire humanity,” the PM added.

He also said that international organisations relating to social media should be approached for blockade of blasphemous content and the Foreign Office should play its role in this regard.

The Prime Minister has sought daily report on the issue. He further remarked that the issue is before the court and all steps should be taken in line with the guidance of the court.
