New Delhi : The Central government refuted OIC response over controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammad made by two BJP leaders. The OIC(organisation of IIslamic Cooperation), in a statement had demanded that India should agree to up hold rights of its Muslims to religion, individuality, culture, dignity and places of worship. The Foreign Affairs ministru responded saying remarks by a couple of people should not be taken as views of the government. India is a country that respects all religions, the Ministry said.
BJP found itself in tight spot after its spokespersons Nupur Sharma and Navin Kuman Jindal aired unsavory remarks against Prophet Muhammad and took to tweeting the same. Although BJP leaders have indulged in similar comments before, countries in the Arab world did not come together like they just did to oppose so vehemently. Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi sounded backlash by way of boycotting Indian goods following BJP swung into action suspending Nupur and Navin.
