New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, an apex body of Muslim organisation, has requested the Prime Minister to issue an appeal to his supporters to stop economic boycott of Muslims to save India’s image and economy after videos emerged which showed that the daily wagers are not allowed because of their religion.
The Muslim body’s president Navaid Hamid said that due to these viral videos India’s image is being dented abroad as twitterati in the gulf have given a warning of economic boycott of Indian goods.
“To save India’s image and economy ask your fans to stop Economic Boycott of Muslims and treat them with dignity. Please issue standing instructions to law enforcement agencies not to spare hate mongers,” said Hamid.
Prime Minister on Sunday in a stern message to the people who are playing communal angle in the spread of the disease said that the Covid-19 doesn’t see any race, religion and borders and the response against the disease should be with unity and brotherhood.
Prime Minister Office tweeted: “COVID-19 does not see race, religion, colour, caste, creed, language or borders before striking.”
“Our response and conduct thereafter should attach primacy to unity and brotherhood. We are in this together,” said the PMO tweet.
