Pakistani celebs slam French President Macron. On Monday, Pakistan condemned the promulgation in France of blasphemous portrayals and the corresponding statements by French President Emmanuel Macron, with a vigorous demonstration in front of the French ambassador, accompanied by resolutions in both houses of parliament.
The Senate and National Assembly rulings were unanimously approved, as lawmakers on both sides of the divide called for Pakistan’s ambassador in Paris to be recalled in protest, saying that the French president had harmed the feelings of billions of Muslims around the world.
Celebs slam French President
Many celebs slam French President on their social media handle. In a Twitter post, Prime Minister Imran Khan also blatantly criticized the statements posted by Macron. “A leader’s hallmark is that, as Mandela did, he unites human beings rather than dividing them. This is a time when extremists could have been healing touch and denied space by Pres Macron rather than creating further polarisation and marginalization that inevitably leads to radicalization,” the PM said.
“Meanwhile, in his criticism of Macron ‘s remarks, actor Feroze Khan was rather explicit.” Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) before everyone. # MacronApologizetoMuslims # Boycottfrenchproducts, “said Feroze.
Subsequently, many Pakistani actors went on to call Macron, asking him to apologize to Muslims worldwide. Actor Ahsan Khan emphasized that a republic is based on the actions of the French government that was not in accordance with the principals. If France is truly a republic, so there should be democracy, there should be no insults against another religion. I thoroughly and unconditionally protest against this brazen abuse to our blessed prophet Muhammad ( PBUH), “said Ahsan.” This must end.
In an Instagram post, actor Yasir Hussain, who has built a popularity for being outspoken on all such topics, shared his feelings. “Agar France apnay sadar kee tauheen bardasht nahi kar raha toh hum apnay Nabi kee tauheen kaisay bardasht karein (If France is unable to bear its President’s insult, then how are we expected to bear our Prophet’s (PBUH) insult,” he said.

While celebs slam French President cricket fraternity is joining hands with them. Similarly, erstwhile Pakistani cricketer, Shoaib Akhtar takes a jab at the French government’s criticism of the Muslim nation’s call to boycott French goods. “Macron: our cartoons will not give up by France. Even Macron: Muslim nations, please give up your appeal to boycott French products. We have the right to condemn your hatred if you have the right to hatred,” Akhtar said.
In the continuing conflict, actor Hamza Ali Abbasi went to twitter and expressed his two cents. The actor wrote on Twitter, “It is your right to disagree and condemn, but it is not your right to ridicule in order to offend and incite purposefully. It is dishonest, unethical and uncivilised.”
“The only way we Muslims can make the world understand is by unity and dialogue alone-not murder, fighting and animosity,” Abbasi went on to comment.
“What if Muslims hold a contest to dump cow meat on a statue of Ram?” the Waar actor asked. “Or who can kill more pigs in a synagogue or who can vomit more accurately on a cross. It’s bad. In the case of making offensive cartoons of a man considered sacred by more than 1.5 billion people, the same happens.”
