A Pakistani minister withdrew her comments she made earlier that French President Emmanuel Macron was treating Muslims like Nazis had treated Jews in World War Two.
France’s foreign minister had demanded Pakistan authorities withdraw the comments posted on Twitter by Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari.
“Macron is doing to Muslims what the Nazis did to the Jews – Muslim children will get ID numbers (other children won’t) just as Jews were forced to wear the yellow star on their clothing for identification,” Mazari had said in a tweet linking to an online article.
Mazari later tweeted: “The article I had cited has been corrected by the relevant publication, I have also deleted my tweet on the same.”
She said she had been alerted to the correction by the French ambassador to Pakistan.
