India is often hit by bad news about its treatment of Muslims.
REPUBLIC.CO.ID, JAKARTA – The insult to Prophet Muhammad SAW by two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) politicians has to be “paid dearly” by India. Almost all Islamic countries and Muslim-majority communities exert political and economic pressures that can threaten India’s position in the world.
“India’s ruling party has now been shaken. The world is putting them under serious pressure. If not taken seriously, India will face serious problems, an international relations analyst from FISIP National University in Jakarta, Thursday (6/9/2022).
According to Robi, the BJP, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has tended to be permissive towards radical groups that oppress Muslims in India since it took power in 2014 to the present day. This situation was one of the factors that led to the actions of politicians like Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal today.
“Because of the actions of these two politicians, India will suffer business losses as its products are boycotted and its business contracts are terminated. The Indian government also has to spend a lot of money to deal with demonstrations at home and abroad,” he told Robi.
The lecturer for Master of Political Science reminded that in the midst of today’s borderless world it is necessary to leave the errant politics of majority rule. “We do not live alone, although we feel that we are the most today. Social media has made the world naked today. What we do, the world will soon know,” said Robi.
India is often hit by bad news about its treatment of Muslims. Although it does not explain the attitude of the majority of Indians, the behavior of these radical groups has tarnished India’s image. Massive protests in early June were the height of anger after two Indian politicians insulted the Prophet Mohammed in mainstream media. Nupur Sharma
made his statement at the debate session related to the dispute at Gyanvapi Mosque in Varanasi City, Uttar Pradesh, broadcast by Times Now TV channel in late May 2022. Meanwhile, Naveen Kumar Jindal made controversial statements regarding Prophet Muhammad SAW via his personal Twitter account.
“I think India’s ruling party should be more aware and more polite to respect each other between people of different religions everywhere. India is a big country. Don’t be discouraged by passing political interests that will harm India’s future in the future,” he told the graduates of the Center for History, Politics and Strategy, this Malaysian SME.
Earlier, Indonesia’s Ulema Council (MUI) deeply regretted the statement by Indian politician Nupur Sharma of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who insulted Prophet Muhammad during a debate on a local TV station.
“MUI deplores the statement by the BJP spokesman who insulted the Prophet Muhammad in a debate on Indian TV over the chaos between the Gyanvapi Mosque adjoining the Kashi Vishnawanth Temple at the same location in Varanasi, India” , said MUI Foreign Relations Chairman Prof. Sudarnoto Abdul Hakim, as reported by Antara.
