New Delhi: Al-Qaeda released a warning letter on June 6 indicating that suicide attack would be carried out in Delhi, Mumbai, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat.
“We will assassinate anyone who insult our Prophet, and we will bind explosives to our bodies and the bodies of our children in order to wipe out the ranks of those who dare to defame our Prophet… In Delhi, Bombay, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat, the saffron terrorists must now await their fate “According to the letter.
This is in light of the uproar that has erupted in response to comments made by a few BJP officials concerning Prophet Muhammad.
The BJP suspended its national spokesperson Nupur Sharma and sacked its Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal on Sunday as the issue of their alleged insulting remarks against Prophet Mohammad increased with protests from different Muslim countries.
Following Muslim protests and violent retaliation from countries like Kuwait, Qatar, and Iran, the BJP issued a statement professing its support for all religions and vehemently condemning insults to religious leaders.
Sharma’s statements, made over ten days ago during a TV discussion, and Jindal’s now-deleted tweets spurred a Twitter trend asking for a boycott of Indian products in several nations.
