Adnan Siddiqui, Shaan Shahid and other stars condemn BJP leaders’ derogatory remarks about Holy Prophet – Comment

Disrespectful remarks made against the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesman Nupur Sharma and party leader Naveen Kumar Jindal have sparked outrage worldwide, including condemnations of several Pakistani celebrities who used the hate speech.

Actor Adnan Siddiqui wrote that the BJP spokesperson should be ashamed of her comments. “Show her depravity of mind and moral bankruptcy. The Indian leadership needs to keep such filthy mouths in check. This has been going on for far too long,” he wrote.

Actor Faysal Quraishi urged his followers and colleagues to make their voices heard on the current issue. In a video, he said: “A woman in Hindustan is talking bluntly about our Holy Prophet (pbuh) and the whole Muslim community is talking about it. Our side is still silent and I think we need to talk about it and it is high time we boycotted. Seeing different and weird things online makes me feel bad, especially at this point because nothing is more important than the Holy Prophet (SAW) I request everyone to protest and speak up about this because it is out of control.”

Actor Shaan Shahid also took to Twitter, taking a jab at Muslim Bollywood stars who have not condemned the incident. He wrote that it is often said that “artists have no limits”, but they do have some self-esteem and wondered if they happened to “sell” it. Shahid also urged his followers to raise their voices against the controversial comments.

Actor and comedian Ahmed Ali Butt reposted former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s tweet, condemning Sharma’s comments. He also wrote: “BJP and this woman should be made an example. For us Muslims, there is nothing like our beloved Prophet (PBUH). Your hatred has exposed your true nature and malice. Do not be surprised! But remember that we[o] can throw stones, but choose to rise above your disease.” Butt also said he supports the decision to boycott all Indian trade and goods.

The derogatory comments by the BJP party leaders brought together many Muslim countries that condemned the comments. The United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jordan, the Maldives, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Iran and Pakistan have issued their respective condemnations. Qatar has also asked for a public apology from India.
