Interior Minister Rehman Malik asked Secretary General Interpol, Ronald K Noble for taking up matter with major search engines to ensure blocking of all anti-Islamic material on the Internet as it is highly detrimental to the war on terror besides worldwide protests.
The minister made this request through a letter written to Secretary General Interpol, Ronald K Noble on September 14, 2012.
He asked the secretary general to take up the matter with major search engines to ensure that they block all anti-Islamic material on the Internet as it is highly detrimental to the war on terror besides worldwide protests against blasphemous material. “We have signatures that there are certain elements who engineered such anti-Islamic, anti-religious slogans, videos and audios etc. They are damaging the interfaith harmony and are hence highly dangerous to the world”, the minister said. He emphasized secretary general to take cognisance of the matter and make it mandatory to block any such anti-Islamic material being received on Internet.
The Interpol may also work out a draft legislation to effectively counter such moves of the criminals to disturb interfaith harmony and ultimately hurting world peace, he said.Talking about effective legislation over the subject, Rehman Malik said that a draft may be placed before the coming General Assembly meeting in Rome.
During the meeting, he said “I would also try to highlight to the world the negativity which such hate and blasphemous material can cause against every body’s interest fighting for the peaceful world.”
