Muzaffarabad: A strong protest was held in Muzaffarabad, today, against a derogatory video about the Holy Prophet (SAW) posted on social media by a Hindu student from India studying at an institute in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
According to Kashmir Media Service, a large number of people participated in the protest organized by Pasban-e Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir. The protesters raising pro-Islam slogans marched from the Central Press Club to Burhan Wani Chowk.
Addressing the demonstration, the speakers maintained that the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir will not forgive any insolence in the glory of the Holy Prophet (SAW). They said, “The love for the Prophet (SAW) is more than everything in the world, the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir will strongly resist the attacks of Hindu extremists on their religion, Quran, mosques, madrasas and Islamic rituals.”
The speakers said the Bharatiya Janata Party has sown the seeds of hatred against Islam and Muslims in India. They said, the Indian government under the leadership of Narendra Modi is directly sponsoring Hindu organizations which are openly attacking Islamic rituals in India. They warned the BJP government to desist from transferring the politics of Islamophobia and hatred to occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The protestors appealed to the United Nations Security Council to stop the Indian actions against the Muslim identity and their majority in the internationally recognized disputed territory.
