New Delhi: Controversy is slowly deepening over the controversial remarks of BJP leaders against Prophet Mohammad. Now the terrorist organization Al Qaeda has also entered in this episode. Terrorist organization Al-Qaeda has threatened a suicide attack in India over the remarks made on Prophet Muhammad. Al Qaeda has called it an insult to Islam and has threatened attacks in many states of the country.

In a threat letter on June 6, terrorist group al-Qaeda said it would launch suicide attacks in Delhi, Mumbai, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat to fight in honor of the Prophet. At the same time, many Muslim countries of the world have already expressed their displeasure with India regarding this remark. Many Gulf countries have also summoned Indian diplomats.

Controversial remarks of Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal against the Prophet have made anti-national elements active, while diplomatic difficulties have also arisen for India. Al Qaeda has threatened attacks in many towns and cities of the country. Kuwait has already withdrawn Indian products from its stores. More than 15 countries including Kuwait, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Oman, Indonesia have protested against this remark. On the other hand, Mumbra police has summoned Nupur Sharma and asked her to appear on June 22.

“The offenders of the Prophet Muhammad, the pride of humanity, shall find no amnesty or clemency, no peace and security will save them and this matter will not close with any words of condemnation of sorrow,” the threat letter read.

After the action, Sharma unconditionally withdrew her controversial statement and claimed that her comments were a reaction to “continuous insult and disrespect towards our Mahadev (Lord Shiva)”, referring to the Gyanvap mosque row.

Amid demonstrations by Muslim groups and the sharp reaction from countries like Kuwait, Qatar and Iran, the BJP issued a statement asserting that it respects all religions and strongly denounces insults of any religious personality.

Sharma’s comments, made during a TV debate a few days back, and Jindal’s now-deleted tweets, have also sparked a Twitter trend calling for a boycott of Indian products in some countries.
