Turkey and Pakistan have joined forces to fight “Islamophobia.”
“Islamophobia,” to regimes such as Turkey and Pakistan, means to not offend Islam in the West. It is a means of exporting Islamic blasphemy laws and eroding the freedom of speech. Note how the real human rights violations in China against the Uighur Muslim community are virtually ignored by these two countries. The French teacher Samuel Paty, who was beheaded for “blasphemy,” however, became the focus of inordinate attention from both Pakistan and Turkey, as their delicate sensibilities became rattled over France’s implementation of measures to protect its freedom of speech and its citizens from the scourge of jihad violence and Islamic blasphemy laws.
To Turkey, Pakistan and all Islamic supremacists, countries which seek to protect themselves against Islamization are “Islamophobic.” All while the worst atrocities continue to be perpetrated against minorities in Pakistan, and Turkey abuses and bullies its way to achieving its goal of neo-Ottoman greatness. Both countries will be supported in their anti-Islamophobia drive by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which has been the driving force behind the Islamophobia canard for some time, and by the United Nations, which has reiterated that “countering Islamophobia is a top priority.”
Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has also announced that his country is deepening its “defence cooperation with Pakistan.”
“Turkey, Pakistan pledge to jointly work against Islamophobia,” Hürriyet Daily News, January 13, 2021:
Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and Pakistani President Arif Alvi on Jan. 13 stressed the importance of working closely in joint efforts against Islamophobia, in the fight against hate crimes and other forms of intolerance against Islam.
Turkey has very good relations with Pakistan, Alvi said at a meeting with Çavuşoğlu and stressed that Ankara and Islamabad should boost economic and cultural relations. Turkey’s investments in Pakistan reached over $1 billion, he said. Pakistan should take advantage of investment opportunities in Turkish businesses, the Pakistani president noted.
Çavuşoğlu, for his part, expressed Turkey’s desire to improve trade relations with Pakistan and said it would continue to encourage Turkish companies to invest in this country.
Turkey’s record in the international arena will continue to support Pakistan, he stated and thanked Pakistan’s support to Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh issue.
Çavuşoğlu is paying a three-day visit to Pakistan where he will participate in a trilateral meeting with his Pakistani and Azerbaijani counterparts.
During his visit, Çavuşoğlu was first received by the president of the country and was conferred with Pakistan’s highest state award “Hilal-i-Pakistan” by Alvi.
Pakistan and Turkey agreed to pursue a joint strategy on matters of mutual interests at the international level, according to Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry….
