Qatar summons Indian envoy, slams anti-Islam remarks by BJP official

New Delhi, 5/6:The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Qatar on Sunday summoned India’s envoy to condemn remarks by a BJP official against Prophet Mohammed.



“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned, today, his excellency Dr Deepak Mittal, the Ambassador of the Republic of India to the country, and handed him an official note, expressing the disappointment of the State of Qatar and its total rejection and condemnation to the controversial remarks made by an official in the ruling party in India against Prophet Mohammed”, a statement by the ministry said.


“The State of Qatar welcomed the statement issued by the ruling party in India in which it announced the suspension of the party’s official from practising his activities in the party due to his remarks that angered all Muslims around the world. Noting that the State of Qatar is expecting a public apology and immediate condemnation of these remarks from the Government of India, pointing out that allowing such Islamophobic remarks to continue without punishment, constitutes a grave danger to the protection of human rights and may lead to further prejudice and marginalisation, which will create a cycle of violence and hate,” it said.
