“Our love for the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is supreme. All Muslims can sacrifice their life for the Love & Respect of their Holy Prophet (PBUH),” he added.

An official statement from the foreign office of Pakistan in this regard, issued on Sunday said, “These totally unacceptable remarks have not only deeply hurt the sentiments of the people of Pakistan but of billions of Muslims around the world.”
“BJP’s attempted clarification and belated and perfunctory disciplinary action against these individuals cannot assuage the pain and anguish they have caused to the Muslim world,” it added.
The outrage started after BJP politician and close aide of Indian PM Modi insulted Prophet Muhammad (PBUM) during a live news show and a video clip of the episode went viral on social media.
Following the ‘boycott India’ trend in the Arab countries and backlash, BJP is reported to have suspended party spokesperson Nupur Sharma and fired media head Naveen Kumar Jindal for hateful comments.
Condemnations continue to pour in on the Twitter timeline from Pakistan as well.
This attack on our Holy Prophet PBUH is the most painful thing anyone can do to Muslims who feel an intense love & reverence for our Holy Prophet PBUH. OIC must take strong action ag Modi's India bec sadly so far India has been allowed to get away with its Islamophobic policies.

فِدَاکَ اَبِیْ وَاُمِّیْ
بی جے پی ترجمان کے شر انگیز اور نبی کریم ﷺ کی شان میں گستاخانہ بیان پر مسلم دنیا کو بھی بھارت سے احتجاج ریکارڈ کروانا چاہئے۔ ایک مسلمان کے لئے نبی کریم ﷺ کی ذات اقدس سے بڑھ کر کچھ نہیں۔
