Pakistani PM Imran Khan says “Jesus has no mention in human history”

from Barnabas Fund:

Drawing ire from Muslims and Christians alike, in a speech on 20 November Imran Khan has claimed that there is no historical record of Jesus Christ.

This could have been a dramatic slip of the tongue by the Oxford University educated leader of the centrist PTI party, but has been viewed as a direct attack on the Christian faith by Pakistani Christians, who number as many as three million in the country.

Khan’s bizarre claim was in stark contrast to the statement he made in a speech following the vote that made him prime minister, in which he declared, “I am saying to you today  that, for the first time, Pakistan’s policies won’t be for the few rich people, it will be for the poor, for our women, for our minorities, whose rights are not respected.”

Around the globe, there was a strong reaction from Christians who have been shocked at Khan’s remarks. He is also facing significant criticism from many Muslims, as Jesus is referred to in the Quran on 187 occasions and considered by Muslims to be a prophet.
