The French Envoy to Pak sent me the following message and as the article I had cited has been corrected by the relevant publication, I have also deleted my tweet on the same. pic.twitter.com/mgOS5RFYwm— Shireen Mazari (@ShireenMazari1) November 22, 2020
The French Embassy released a statement in response to the tweet, “These despicable words are blatant lies, loaded with an ideology of hatred and violence. Such slanderous comments are disgraceful at such level of responsibility. We reject them strongly,”. The statement further read, “Pakistan must rectify this statement and return to the path of dialogue based on respect.”.
The publication behind the article later amended the articles to reflect that these laws would apply to all children in France, not just muslim ones. A fact that the French envoy also related to the Human Rights Minister of Pakistan.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that ID Numbers would be exclusively for Muslim children in France. This has been amended to reflect the fact that the draconian measures within the bill will be in place for all children..(continued) https://t.co/DJRq1tGiMJ— France in Pakistan (@FranceinPak) November 22, 2020

A mistake that netizens have found hilarious, as they believe it is an admission of guilt.
So, French embassy admitting that macron is introducing draconian measures in France. Interesting😃— Imam Azam Kakar (@imampanezai) November 22, 2020
