ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday called upon the world leaders to launch a crackdown on online hate and extremism after the hate-fuelled attack in Canada which has shocked everyone.
The premier, while speaking with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s chief political correspondent Rosemary Barton, said the murder of a Muslim family in Canada has shocked everyone in Pakistan.
‘Everyone is shocked in Pakistan because we saw the family picture, and so a family being targeted like that has had a deep impact in Pakistan. Adding that, ‘the recent pattern of domestic terror in West demanded a heightened focus on online radicalization.’
