Islamabad, June 12, 2022 (PPI-OT):President Dr Arif Alvi has strongly condemned the disproportional use of force against Muslim protesters across India. In a statement, the President called upon Indian government to shun its Hindutva policies and stop targeting its minorities and hurting their religious sentiments. He also called for putting an end to rising incidents of violence and spreading of hate against Indian minorities, especially Muslims.
The President said violence against Muslims on flimsy pretexts by various ‘Hindutva’ groups with complete impunity, and often under state patronage, highlight the worsening trend of Islamophobia and extremism in India. He urged Indian government to stop using brutal force against peaceful demonstrators and ensure that decisive and demonstrable action is taken against those responsible for making derogatory remarks about the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Rasool Allah Khatam-un-Nabiyeen Sallallaho-o-Alaih-e-Wasalam. The President also called upon international community to take immediate cognizance of the grievously aggravating situation of Islamophobia in India.
