Expressing its deep concern over the ghastly ethnic attack on Indian Muslims, Kuwait Council of ministers has appealed to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation OIC and the international community to intervene.
The official condemnation came after several Arab activists, intellectuals and royals raised their voices against the growing attacks on Indian Muslims by Hindu majority in India.
India has witnessed a rise in hatred against Muslims after a section of Indian media misreported a congregation organised by Islamic missionary group Tablighi Jamaat in March in New Delhi after several of the group’s members were infected with Covid-19. The misrepresentation of the incident has led to the social boycott of Muslims in many corners of India and a rise in hate crime against them including lynchings.
Sensing the gravity of the matter PM Modi and foreign minister S.Jaishankar spoke personally to his counterparts across the Arab world in last couple of days.
According to data tabled in Parliament in April 2018, there are 87.76 lakh (8.77 million) Indians in six Gulf countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
