TikTok, books do not pose danger to Islam in Pakistan: Fawad Chaudhry

ISLAMABAD: Islam in Pakistan was not threatened either by TikTok or books, Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry said Sunday, a few days after the Punjab Assembly passed the Tahaffuz-e-Bunyad-e-Islam Bill.

In a series of tweets, Chaudhry underlined how “at present, an atmosphere has been created in the parliament, especially in Punjab, where a member comes up with a new motion every other day, claiming Islam is in danger if that is not passed”.

“This is a dangerous attitude that will throw us into a vicious circle of sectarian and religious extremism,” he said. “In Pakistan, Islam is neither threatened by TikTok nor books.”

The minister added that Pakistan, on the other hand, was threatened by sectarian divisions and extremism.

“Individuals in palaces should be careful not to fan the flames lest they be burned themselves,” he noted further.
