Pakistan join Arab campaign to boycott French products

The calls for #BoycottFrenchProducts are now resonating across the Muslim world, with more and more countries shunning French goods. The campaign has not been restricted to buyers only. Markets and trade associations are themselves removing French products.

Joining in with the Arab countries, Pakistan and Turkey have also announced boycotts of French products following the French President Emmanuel Macron’s anti-Islam statements and support for campaigns insulting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the name of freedom of speech.

President of the Central Association of Punjab Traders, Sharjeel Mir, announced a boycott of French products in protest against the French President and his government’s support for the publication of blasphemous sketches to insult Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Sharjeel Mir said that the French government and citizens have always propagated hate against Islam.

“Traders across the country are announcing a complete boycott of French products and making it clear that we know how to shut down anyone who speaks against the honor of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the religion of Islam.”

Mir urged the government to cut diplomatic ties with France and prevent its products from entering the country.

He said the traders would stage a protest on October 29 at Rawalpindi’s Fawara Chowk.

Meanwhile, other traders’ associations are consulting for a collective strategy.

Anjuman-e-Tarjan Punjab held a meeting with its central president, Ashraf Bhatti, in the chair. They demanded the government extradite the French ambassador and terminate all diplomatic ties unless France offers an official apology.
