ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly on Tuesday has passed a joint resolution strongly denouncing the circulation of objectionable material about Holy Prophet (PBUH) and his companions on the social media.
The resolution jointly moved by Muhammad Safdar and Naeema Kishwar Khan said the blasphemous material is hurting the sentiments of the Muslims.
The resolution urged the government to take necessary steps to block the profane material on social media.
The House adopted a motion authorizing Speaker National Assembly to constitute a ten-member special committee to suggest measures for blocking the sacrilegious material on social media and action against the responsible persons for this crime.
On the other hand, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has directed Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to take all necessary measures to block blasphemous contents on social media.
He said steps should be taken to completely eradicate the condemnable blasphemous contents on social media and those spreading such material should be brought to justice.
The premier has sought report on the issue on daily basis.
