TDN WORLD Desk: Under Narendra Modi government Islamophobia is on rapid increase in India which did not go unnoticed to the people across the world.On Tuesday, people from all across the globe- mainly from the gulf cooperation countries- has raised their voice against the anti-Muslim atmosphere in India. Many Indian also extended solidarity to their Muslim brothers and took to Twitter to register their voices against the prevailing Islamophobic tide in the country.
Twitteratis from America, Europe, GCC have extended solidarity to their Muslim brethern. Close to 1 million people joined the solidarity movement through twitter.
Here follows some Twiiter reaction against the rising tide of Islamophobi ain India.
For last several days Modi led BJP government recieving severe backlash from the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other muslim countries in the Middle-East. The situation has become so grave that Prime Minister Narendra Modi came up with a statement. PM Modi on April 19 said,”COVID-19 does not see race, religion, colour, caste, creed, language or borders before striking.”
“Our response and conduct thereafter should attach primacy to unity and brotherhood. We are in this together,” added he.
But Prime Minister’s statement was not as simple as it appeared to be. Modi’s statement came, as an antidote to damage control, in a time when the Gulf countries hit back the Hindu supermacist staying their and peddling Islamophobia.Significntly, PM Modi was a silent watcher when Islamophobia against Muslims were being spread in the excuse of Tablighi Jaamat. His statement came only when Hindutva bigots were recieving slaps in Gulf countries.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called on Modi government to halt Islamohobia in the country. Interestingly, OIC’s statement prompted Union Minister
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi to make hasty statement. He said India is heaven for Muslims. Ironiclly, be it mob lynching, implicationg of the innocent Muslims in Delhi riots, or anti-CAA,NRC movement, Naqvi was seen nowhere in the turf battling for the Muslims’ rights. He sells his Muslim identity to suit the Hindu nationlist agenda of Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Pary. When the Muslim community were being maligned, demonized under the pretext of Tablighi Jaamat Naqvi did not show up, nor any other BJP Minister as well.
