PARIS (Dispatches) – The French government has summoned Pakistan’s envoy to Paris to protest remarks by Pakistani President Arif Alvi criticizing a piece of French legislation considered discriminatory against Muslims.
France’s foreign ministry said it had called in Pakistan’s charge d’affaires to mark "our surprise and our disapproval (of Alvi’s remarks), given that the bill contains no discriminatory element.” The bill, which rights advocates consider discriminatory against Muslims, has prompted protests in France.
