Arab countries boycotting Indian products after Islamophobic remarks of BJP

Arab countries have called for an online campaign against the Indian products due to their disrespect of the Prophet Mohammed.

A spokesperson for India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a statement last week and this led to people in the Indian state of West Bengal attacking each other over religion. Outrage spread internationally, with protesters demanding the arrest of this official and suggesting that Modi was not doing enough.

Saudi Arabia condemned the statement. The remark was made by a BJP spokesperson in a television debate last week. In a statement, Riyadh said the spokesperson’s comments are insulting, and people should be respectful of other religions.
