Islamabad, June 12, 2021 (PPI-OT):Pakistan is working on a resolution against growing Islamophobia in some countries around the world, which will be presented at the UN General Assembly for adoption. This was stated by Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations; Munir Akram in an interview with a Riyadh based Saudi newspaper “Arab News”. The Pakistani envoy said we need to do a lot of convincing at the UN General Assembly because India and some western countries are resisting the resolution. Munir Akram said while most people in the international community realize that Islamophobia is a reality, but some nations are opposed to a resolution because it would oblige them to act on anti-Muslim hate crimes.
