Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan drew backlash last month for claiming there is “no mention” of Jesus in history and for encouraging stricter blasphemy laws.
Khan made his controversial statements on Nov. 20, which marks the Prophet Mohammad’s birthday. During the speech, he compared Jesus to Mohammed.
“There were prophets of Allah other [than Mohammad], but there is no mention of them in human history. There is negligible mention of them. Moses is mentioned, but there is no mention of Jesus in history,” he said, according to a translation posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
“But the entire life of Mohammed, who was Allah’s last prophet, is part of history,” Khan added.
