Now, Oman raises issue of ex-BJP leaders’ remarks on Prophet, meets envoy | World News

Oman turns into the most recent Western Asian nation to lift an objection to the controversial remarks made by former BJP spokespersons on Prophet Mohammed.

A senior official of Oman’s overseas ministry on Monday met Indian ambassador Amit Narang to lift an objection to the controversial remarks made by former BJP spokespersons on Prophet Mohammed, saying such statements don’t serve relations of peaceable coexistence. 

With nations like Kuwait, Qatar, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan reacting sharply, the BJP had issued a press release asserting it respects all religions and strongly denounces insult to any non secular character.

On Sunday, the BJP suspended its nationwide spokesperson Nupur Sharma and expelled its Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal because the row over their remarks in opposition to the Prophet escalated with protests from some Muslim nations.
