India is a paradise for Muslims: Naqvi


New Delhi: Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that India is paradise for Muslims and their social, economical and religious rights are safe in the country. The lone Muslim cabinet member came out with public statement following Prime Minister Narendra Modi after prominent figures in Arab countries and Organisation of Islamic Co-operation came out for urgent action against anti muslim violence in India as part of Islamophobia. OIC’s Human Rights Commission also had criticised that Muslims are facing discrimination as they are portrayed in bad light by the Indian media.

Prominent Arab leaders are persisting for action against BJP leaders citing their controversial anti-muslim tweets and statements even after the Prime Minister tweeted that Covid has no religion and caste. As at least six Sangh parivar associates lost their jobs for spreading anti-Muslim tweets, the Indian Consul in UAE also had intervened in the issue.

Lately, prominent singer Sonu Nigam deleted his twitter handle as he had been in controversies for criticising Islam and Muslims in the name of Azan from mosques.

India had officially asked OIC, which has 57 Arab countries as members, to refrain from irresponsible statements. Naqvi claimed that Indian Muslims have earned prosperity and they will not be befriended by those who strive to contaminate the environment. When asked about the OIC statement, the minister replied, “we are doing our job with full conviction”.

Meanwhile, Naqvi’s statement was followed with a series of responses from the Arab world. Nura Al Ghurair tweeted that the ‘minorities’ in the Gulf countries also should be given the response as Indian Muslims experience and they also should feel the country as ‘paradise’.

Arab countries were provoked after boycott calls against Muslims across India after heinous propaganda in mainstream and social media after about 2,000 followers of Tabligh Jamaat were stranded at their head quarters in Nizamuddin, Delhi after the nationwide lockdown was announced.
