Derogatory remarks prove India “epicenter of global Islomophobia”

New Delhi, June 08, 2023 (PPI-OT):The obnoxious and blasphemous slogans raised at a rally against Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him) by activists of Hindutva organization, Karni Sena, have hurt the sentiments of Muslims across India and around the world proving, India is “epicenter of global Islomophobia”.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the rally was organised by Karni Sena in Jaipur city of Rajasthan state. The matter came to light when some video clips surfaced on social media wherein a group of vehicle-borne persons holding saffron flags is seen shouting derogatory slogans against the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and Muslims, reports said.

“Abdul tere baap ka naam, Jai Shri Ram” (Abdul, your father’s name is ‘Jai Shri Ram’). The same slogan was raised with the name of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) used instead of Abdul. Some people have even put up a status on social media with the same slogan.

As the video surfaced on social media, Ikramuddin, a worker of All India Muslim Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen, filed a complaint at the Vidhayakpur Police Station in Jaipur. On Tuesday, the police registered an FIR under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), media reports said.

An FIR has been registered against several unnamed persons taking part in a Karni Sena rally in Jaipur for making derogatory remarks against the Holy Prophet (PBUH). As per the FIR, the rally in which the controversial slogans were raised was organised by the Karni Sena. “The obnoxious slogans raised at the Karni Sena rally, as shown in the video, have hurt the sentiments of Indian Muslims as well as mine. Therefore, the people who were seen raising these slogans should be severely punished for their nefarious and disparaging behavior,” Ikramuddin stated in the FIR.

The FIR also said that the raising of such demeaning and offensive slogans is a criminal act meant to disturb the harmonious atmosphere of the country. The accused should be given severe punishment so that others do not dare to emulate this act. The controversial slogans were also raised by Hindutva leaders during an event in Madhya Pradesh some months ago. Those videos had gone viral causing communal tensions across the state. The police had registered an FIR in the case.

Now, the same pattern is being repeated in Rajasthan which has been witnessing hate speeches and anti-Muslim events in recent months. Such events are meticulously being planned by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to stoke communal feelings whereby it can consolidate the Hindu vote bank ahead of the upcoming assembly elections.
