A supermarket here has stopped selling Indian rice, spices and chillies. The company that runs the supermarket is considering taking a similar step at its other stores.

The CEO of the supermarket said – will not tolerate the insult of the Prophet

In a supermarket located just outside Kuwait City, sacks of rice and shelves of spices and chillies from India have been covered with plastic sheets, international news agency AFP reported.

Every piece of paper on this sheet reads in Arabic, “We have removed Indian products.” “As Kuwaiti Muslims, we will not tolerate insults to the Prophet,” said the store’s CEO, Nasser Al-Mutairi.

What is the whole matter of the controversial statement on Prophet Muhammad?

BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma made controversial remarks on Prophet Mohammad during a debate on the issue of Gyanvapi Masjid on a TV channel on May 27 . His remarks soon went viral on social media and became the biggest issue on social media in Arab countries. There was a trend against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for several days.

Taking action in the matter, BJP has suspended Sharma from the party.

Indian ambassadors were summoned by three Arab countries, Saudi Arabia also expressed its opposition

So far, the governments of Kuwait, Qatar and Iran have summoned the ambassadors of India in the matter. Today Iran became the new country to summon the Indian Ambassador. Qatar has demanded in its statement that India should apologize for this Islamophobic statement.

Saudi Arabia ‘s Foreign Ministry also issued a statement condemning Nupur’s remarks and welcomed the BJP’s move to suspend her.

Islamic organizations also objected to the statement

Apart from Arab countries, many Islamic organizations have also issued a statement expressing strong objection to Nupur’s remarks.

Al-Azhar University, one of Islam’s most influential institutions, has said that Nupur’s statement is real terrorism and can plunge the whole world into deadly crises and wars.

The Muslim World League has called the statement inciting violence. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an organization of 57 Muslim countries, has also condemned the statement.

Indian Ambassador to Qatar Deepak Mittal has also issued a similar statement and termed the controversial statement as the views of marginalized elements.

The BJP has also spoken of respecting all religions.
