PRIME Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has sent his special representative to meet Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to personally convey to the government Malaysia’s views on insults against Prophet Muhammad.
In addition, Foreign Minister Saifuddin Abdullah said the Foreign Ministry had summoned India’s High Commissioner in Kuala Lumpur on June 7 to convey Malaysia’s protest over the incident.
“So far, it is understood that the special envoy has not been able to hold an official meeting with the prime minister of India. The move is to ensure that our views are conveyed personally to the highest authorities in India,” he told a press conference after attending the Twenty’s Talk Hi-Tea Programme in Kuantan today.
Elaborating, Saifuddin, who is also Indera Mahkota MP, said the Indian government had taken swift action as the two politicians from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who insulted the prophet were removed from their government positions.
“I was at the Asean-India Foreign Ministers Special Meeting on June 16 and the next day I attended a bilateral meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankardi where I had the opportunity to convey the views of the Malaysian government on this issue.
“He (Subrahmanyam) said the derogatory remarks do not represent India’s stand and we agreed that both parties need to find a way to resolve it in a better way if the matter is repeated in future,” he said.
Recently, two members of the BJP, India’s ruling party, issued statements that insulted Prophet Muhammad and his wife Saidatina Aisyah.
The matter had sparked outrage among Muslims, especially in West Asia, who condemned the action, causing several shopping malls to boycott Indian products. – Bernama, June 19, 2022.
