Prophet Muhammad Row: The resentment of Gulf and Muslim countries is continuously coming out against the statement of BJP leader Nupur Sharma about the Prophet Muhammad.
Now the UAE, Jordan and Indonesia have also rejected the remarks made about Prophet Mohammed.
The UAE Foreign Ministry stated on Monday saying that we need to respect religious symbols. We should not violate them. The UAE said that we must oppose hate speech and violence.
The Kingdom of Jordan condemned the statement of the BJP leader, saying that it rejects such remarks and statements that degrade Islamic and other religious figures.
OIC member Indonesia has also rejected the remarks of two BJP leaders about Prophet Muhammad as "unacceptable and derogatory".
Indonesia has said that it has expressed its opposition to the Indian Embassy in Jakarta.
Let us inform you that the BJP has suspended Nupur from the party after the Muslim countries protested against Nupur Sharma's statement about Prophet Muhammad and caught the matter.
She has been relieved of all party responsibilities. Naveen Kumar Jindal, in charge of the Delhi BJP Media Cell, has also been shown the way out by the party. The BJP said that it respects all religions.
The displeasure of Muslim countries has come to the fore so much that Qatar and Kuwait have asked the Indian government to apologize.
In view of the displeasure of Muslim countries, the government has defended itself. The government has said that 'some people with some extremist thinking have made such a statement'. These people do not represent the thinking of the Government of India.
Nupur Sharma made objectionable remarks about Prophet Muhammad during a debate on a TV show about Gyanvapi Masjid. She said, 'Muslims are making fun of Shivling by calling the Shivling found in the mosque a fountain.' In this sequence, she gave a statement on the Prophet.
