I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3

In Lahore, 17-year-old Christian boy #PatrasMasih is accused of #blasphemy on social media by a local cleric. An angry mob led by Tehreek-e-Labaiak gathered outside Masih's house in Shahdara. Police lodged FIR under 295-C and the boy's father Indreas was arrested yesterday.
Later, teenager accused of blasphemy #PatrasMasih handed himself to the police. Situation in Shahdara remains tense as several Christian families have fled the area fearing for life. However, Pakistani media's silence in such cases of #blasphemy has become a new normal. #Pakistan
Pakistan govt proposes same sentence for blasphemers, false accusers. Easier said than done. Once someone is even accused of #blasphemy, they are doomed! The mob doesn't care about the accuser/accusation. Case in point: #MashalKhan #AsiaBibi #JunaidHafeez tribune.com.pk/story/1637205/…
