ICYF strongly condemns offensive remarks made on Prophet Muhammad by India’s Ruling BJP Party
ICYF condemns and strongly denounces libelous statements slandering the Prophet Muhammad recently made by an official from India’s ruling party. Several OIC Member States have already acted swiftly and decisively by rebuking Indian ambassadors to their respective countries in objection to the defamatory targeting of the Prophet Muhammad by BJP official.

As stated by OIC in its condemnation, this incendiary act is included among a ‘growing spate of hatred and defamation of Islam in India and systematic practices against Indian Muslims, particularly in light of a set of decisions to prohibit the use of hijab in educational institutions in some Indian states, including demolition of Muslims’ properties and growing violence against them.’

ICYF calls on India’s authorities to act decisively against these incidents of defamation and to refrain from all forms of insult to the noble Prophet and Islam, as well as to bring instigators and perpetrators of violence against Muslims to account. ICYF calls on Indian authorities to protect and ensure the safety, security, rights, religious and cultural idenitites, places of worship and freedoms of India’s Muslim community.

ICYF further calls on the international community, including the UN and Human Rights Council, to pursue action to safeguard India’s Muslim community from further islamophobic attacks and vilification, and welcomes governments around the world to embrace a unified stance and solidarity against all acts of islamophobic violence around the world.
