    Islamabad: Pakistan being the breeding ground for potential terrorist recruits has become evident with new protests against Charlie Hebdo Magazine’s republication of Prophet Muhammad cartoons and anti-Shia protests in Karachi, Global Watch Analysis reported

    According to a report by Roland Jacquard, president of Roland Jacquard Global Security Consulting (RJGSC), published in Global Watch Analysis, Charlie Hebdo magazine had republished the cartoons of Prophet Muhammad on September 2, the date of the trial for the terrorist attack of January 2015 at the Charlie Hebdo office and at the Hyper Cacher at Porte de Bagnolet in Paris

    During Charlie Hebdo magazine’s republication of the Prophet Muhammad cartoons on September 2, Iran and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation issued strong statements condemning the move Even al-Qaeda had issued a veiled threat against magazine, warning that the 2015 attack was not a “one-off” However, the majority of the protests took place in Pakistan

    Jacquard said the strongest and most virulent backlash against France was seen in Pakistan, where radical Islamist groups took to the streets to protest, calling for the expulsion of French Ambassador Marc Barety and the suspension of diplomatic relations with France

    Protests led by Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), a radical political party established in 2015, took place in various cities like Islamabad, Multan and Karachi, with the French flag burned across the country Along with this, the party also carried out a hate campaign on social networks “calling for jihad against those who commit blasphemy”

    Meanwhile, Maulana Abdul Waseh, leader of the Islamist group Jamaat Ulema e Islami Baluchistan, described the publication of the cartoons as a blatant act of terrorism. Likewise, the Tahafuz-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwat conference called the authors of the “ blasphemous caricatures ” of greater terrorists.

    Jacquard quoted the statement from the Pakistani Foreign Ministry as saying: “Such a deliberate act to offend the feelings of billions of Muslims cannot be justified as an exercise of freedom of the press or freedom of speech”

    This follows a recent rally in Karachi in which thousands of people took part in a massive anti-Shiite protest, raising fears it could lead to a new wave of sectarian violence in Pakistan

    The country’s social media was filled with posts, stunning photographs and videos of the protest, in which a sea of ​​protesters were seen chanting “Shias are Kaffir” (disbelievers) and holding banners of Sipah-e- Sahaba Pakistan, a terrorist organization linked to the killing of Shiites over the years The hashtag #ShiaGenocide quickly began to spread on Pakistani social networks

    Jacquard said: “Most worrying is that these protests are a reiteration of the fact that radical terrorist / Islamist groups in Pakistan can carry out their activities without restraint and often with the support of state authorities Another issue that should concern the democratic and secular world is the country’s blasphemy laws, under which members of minority religious groups, mainly Christians and Hindus, are often sentenced to death by Pakistani courts on frivolous blasphemy charges.”

    He added that the recent anti-France protests in Pakistan are a warning signal that the country may soon “become the biggest breeding ground for potential terrorist recruits”

    Urging countries to unite against Pakistan, he said: “As more and more countries face the challenges of Islamic radicalization, it is important that a combined approach is developed by countries sharing democratic ideals, in the West and even within the world, to face nations like Pakistan which pose a serious threat to world peace and security And the first step towards this combined approach would be to stop seeing these countries as normal partners in bilateral and multinational engagement and trade”
