Rabbani wants blasphemous cartoon contest halted

Aug 30, 2018 - 18:04

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani on Thursday telephoned his Dutch counterpart and asked him to do all he could to halt a planned anti-Islam cartoon contest in the Netherlands.

A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) quoted Rabbani as saying that disrespecting sacred human values was against the standards of humanity and freedom of expression.

He asked Stef Blok to immediately stop the planned blasphemous cartoon completion which had hurt the feelings of over 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide.

The Dutch foreign minister distanced his government from the cartoon contest and said he would do all under his country’s laws to stop the event.
