Guterres calls for end to anti-Muslim violence in India

United Nations, June 15 (KMS): In the wake of ongoing drive of bulldozing houses of Muslims by Modi government in India, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has reiterated his call to stop any violence stemming from religious differences in the country.

UN Secretary General’s spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said that Guterres “is for the full respect of religion, for calling against any sort of hate speech or incitement and, of course, a halt to any sort of violence, especially one based on perceived religious differences and hatred.”

He was replying to a journalist’s question at his daily briefing on “the high tension” in India following the derogatory statements by BJP leaders about the Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

It is worth mentioning here that blasphemous remarks were made by BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma and Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal, recently.
