Pakistani minister’s words are ‘loaded with an ideology of hatred and violence,’ says French foreign ministry.

France has called on Pakistani authorities “to rectify” the “blatant lies” of a Pakistani minister who compared President Emmanuel Macron’s treatment of Muslims to the Nazis’ treatment of Jews in World War II.

Pakistan’s minister for human rights, Shireen Mazari, tweeted Saturday that Macron “is doing to Muslims what the Nazis did to the Jews — Muslim children will get ID numbers (other children won’t) just as Jews were forced to wear the yellow star on their clothing for identification,” linking to an article by the media organization The Muslim Vibe.

The minister’s accusations came amid an ongoing clash between France and some Muslim countries over the French magazine Charlie Hedbo’s re-publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad. Several countries, including Pakistan, have also taken issue with France’s staunch defense of secularism and the right to blaspheme following the beheading last month of a teacher who had shown cartoons of Muhammad in his classroom.

“These despicable words are blatant lies, loaded with an ideology of hatred and violence,” a spokesperson for the French foreign ministry said Saturday in response to the Pakistani minister’s tweet. “Such slanderous comments are disgraceful at such level of responsibility” and are “deeply shocking and insulting,” they said. “Pakistan must rectify these remarks and return to the path of a dialogue based on respect.”

The French embassy in Pakistan on Saturday also flagged the minister’s tweet as “fake news and false accusations.”
As part of Macron’s push to clamp down on radical Islam, the government has proposed giving all children an identification number to be used to ensure they are attending school. The measure, part of a proposed “charter of republican values,” would apply to all children, not only Muslim children, as Mazari claimed.

Mazari doubled down on her comments on Sunday, but later deleted her original tweet, saying that “as the article I had cited has been corrected by the relevant publication, I have also deleted my tweet on the same.”

According to the editor’s note on the article by The Muslime Vibe, which has since been corrected, “an earlier version” of the article “incorrectly state that ID Numbers would be exclusively for Muslims children in France,” whereas the proposed bill would apply to “all children.”

This response is really down to the boycott movement - I will continue to make sure no one in my circle buys any French goods and services. I'm also researching my favourite products to make sure their supply network doesn't have any French tiers - it's difficult, but they started it.

Oh dear. Priceless.

So "slander" or defamation of an entire religious group is permitted when Charlie Hebdo does it right?

But suddenly, France remembers what "slander" means when France itself is slandered.

What a confused country.

Great post by the 100% non-Indian who identifies as American.

When it comes to France - all animals are equal BUT some are MORE equal than others.
When France stands up and apologise for its misdemeanours across the world - then it should expect the same. France is indeed a confused and broken

Source is politico? If you come to EU you would notice that countries like India and Pakistan are pretty much unheard of. Nobody knows anything about that part of the world here. Only relevant Asian countries SK, Japan and China.

This is called grasping at the straws... taking tweeter feed of anyone in the ruling coalition as official position of the state. Let them burn all this outrage on peripheral statements...
This is a statement by a cabinet-level minister and is not in isolation. I think the French see these comments as a further escalation of Pakistan's Prime Minister's comments.

Imran Khan and aides has fast tracked Ajit Devil's cold start, from the day one.
It's not the Shirin Mazari to blame, it's Imran Khan who use his ministers for all sort of dirty work, pointed as jibes.

France should apologize and compensate the millions of Algerians that it massacred when it ruled that country. The compensation should include 10 Trillion and allowing 20 million muslims to emigrate there :D

What do you expect... should they sit quite ? should Indians sit quite?
If it is meant to save Pakistan, than Imran Khan and aides must be investigated, starting from the murder of Qandil Baloch.

I can point out at recent genocides from bordering countries. Why are those ignored, by IM the DIM?

Difference with France is that a genuine hatred of not just Islam but also muslims. Similar to Hindu Indians and Armenians.

France is the epicenter of Anti-Islam and Islamaphobia. Think about it France has invaded, colonized, massacred many muslims nations going back to the time of Charlagne and the Crusaders. Whether it is Turkey, Or Paksitan, Or Egypt any muslim country ever wonder why France always gets its evil claws involved? but is willing to make allies with the Saudis and Iranians?
