Bharatiya Janata party spokesman Nupur Sharma’s derogatory comments against the Prophet Mohammad are reverberating around the world. Qatar, Kuwait, Iran and Saudi Arabia have expressed their discontent. On the other hand, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an organization of Islamic countries, has also condemned the statement. He also urged the United Nations to take appropriate action. Since then, the controversy has escalated.
Maharashtra Congress State Speaker Nana Patole also criticized the BJP over the issue. He tweeted: “BJP has expelled BJP spokespersons Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal from the party. Both of them were spreading religious hatred in the society. There are also some BJP leaders in Maharashtra who spread religious hatred on a daily basis.”
In another tweet, he further said that God knows when the BJP will understand ‘first the country and then itself’. When the US, many European countries and the Gulf countries imposed trade bans on India, the Modi government came to its senses. Otherwise, these numbers will cause quarrels between the brothers to win the elections.
