By insisting that the West should refrain from insulting the prophet Mohammed because he lives in the hearts of Muslims, Khan tried to validate the myth of universal Muslim victimhood. He appeared to justify the violent responses many Muslims have to any perceived insults to Islam.
According to Khan, it is a natural outcome if Muslims are to feel “hurt”. Yet how hurt do self-defined victims need to feel before they form a rabble and beat to death a member of a religious minority, or shoot a politician opposed to blasphemy laws? These things are common enough in Pakistan that they barely make international news.
