Manipur Muslims condemns remark on Prophet by BJP officials


Imphal: Hundreds of people took part in a protest in Manipur’s Thoubal district who demanded legal actions against suspended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal over their controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammad.

The protest at a community hall at Yairipok Changamdabi was jointly organized by Changamdabi Muhammadan Club and Changamdabi Ulama Body.

Placards read as “Arrest Nupur Sharma and Navin Jindal”, “We love Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him”, “Our Prophet, our pride”, etc. etc., were displayed at the protest site.

Dr Mukti Muhammad Nursalim, a spokesperson of the Changamdabi Ulama Body said that they were protesting strongly condemning the recent remarks of the Nupur Sharma and Navin Jindal. “Every citizen of the country, irrespective of the religion he/she follows, should condemn such irresponsible remarks of the responsible persons of a political party”, he said. He then alleged that the two suspended BJP leaders had desecrated pluralism, secularism and the ‘unity in diversity’ based constitution of the country. To protect the sanctity of the Constitution, harsh punishment should be awarded to Nupur Sharma and Navin Jindal, he demanded.
