In the latest round of verbal slaps between France and Muslim countries:
France’s foreign ministry has demanded Pakistan authorities withdraw comments made by one of its ministers that President Emmanuel Macon was treating Muslims like Nazis had treated Jews in World War 2.
The comments posted on Twitter by Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari on Saturday came as part of a clash between Pakistan and France over the publication of images of the Prophet Mohammad by a French magazine. The images have sparked anger and protests in the Muslim world, especially in Pakistan.
“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 said in a tweet linking to an online article. [...]
I'm curious if in comparison, has Pakistan, in particular its Federal Ministry for Human Rights, condemned China's treatment of Muslims and in what terms?
The latter was condemned by 39, mostly Western countries at the UN. Some 50 other countries including Iran, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela and Cuba backed a counter-declaration calling China's "re-education" camps for Muslims a legitimate tool in combating terrorism. It's unclear to me if Pakistan sided with either of these declarations.
According to the Indian WION TV station (which I'm not sure how reliable it is with regard to claims about Pakistan or China), China has protested to the Pakistani government the way its treatment of Muslims has been portrayed... by the Pakistani English-speaking media, even though, according to the same source the Pakistani government itself has been "silent" on the matter, according to WION. I could not immediately find confirmation of these claims in Western media.
On the other hand, the Wall Street Journal did publish and opinion piece on a 2019 speech of Pakistan's PM to the UN, noting the absence of any criticism toward China:
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s foreign-policy agenda carries a contradiction at its heart. Mr. Khan seeks to project himself as a global defender of Islam, but he won’t utter a peep about one of the most egregious persecutions of Muslims: China’s repression of Xinjiang’s Uighurs and its project to Sinicize Islam.
In New York last week, Mr. Khan laid out his vision in a rambling 50-minute address to the United Nations General Assembly. He defended the right of Muslim women in the West to don the hijab. “A woman can take off her clothes in [some] countries, but she can’t put on more clothes,” he said. He declared that “there is no such thing as radical Islam,” only “one Islam and that is the Islam we follow of Prophet Muhammad.”
The prime minister blamed the rise of “Islamophobia” on some “people in the West who deliberately provoked this,” in part by writing novels such as Salman Rushdie’s “The Satanic Verses.” He warned that “marginalizing Muslim communities” in Europe “leads to radicalization.” He asked the West to treat the prophet “with sensitivity” akin to how it approaches the Holocaust.
In that speech and also in a 2020 speech Khan also lambasted India for its treatment of Muslims "calling India a state sponsor of hatred and prejudice against Islam", according to AP, which also noted that
Despite Khan’s outcry at the treatment of Muslims worldwide, Pakistan has not criticized China’s assault on its Muslim minority Uighur population.
But that still leaves the possibility that Pakistan's other governmental institutions may have said something about the situation in China. The question is: did they, in particular the Federal Ministry for Human Rights, say anything about the situation of Muslims in China?
