In response to a media query regarding statement issued by Qatar Ministry of Foreign Affairs on an offensive tweet in India, the Spokesperson of the Embassy of India in Qatar said the tweets do not, in any manner, reflect the views of the Government of India. These are the views of fringe elements.  Earlier, Qatar Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Indian ambassador Dr Deepak Mittal & handed him an official note, expressing disappointment &total rejection & condemnation of the controversial remarks made by an official in the ruling party in India against Prophe Mohammed (SAW). According to a statement issued here, Ambassador had a meeting in the Foreign Office in which concerns were raised with regard to some offensive tweets by individuals in India denigrating the religious personality. Ambassador conveyed that the tweets do not, in any manner, reflect the views of the Government of India. These are the views of fringe elements. In line with our civilisational heritage and strong cultural traditions of unity in diversity, Government of India accords the highest respect to all religions. Strong action has already been taken against those who made the derogatory remarks. A statement has also been issued by concerned quarters emphasizing respect for all religions, denouncing insult to any religious personality or demeaning any religion or sect. Vested interests that are against India – Qatar relations have been inciting the people using these derogatory comments. We should work together against such mischievous elements who aim to undercut the strength of our bilateral ties.  The Bharatiya Janata Party suspended its spokesperson Nupur Sharma from the party’s primary membership and expelled its Delhi media head Naveen Kumar Jindal after their alleged inflammatory remarks against minorities. The development comes hours after the party issued a statement seeking to defuse the row Expelling Jindal, a communication from its Delhi BJP president Adesh Gupta said, “Your primary membership is immediately terminated and you are expelled from the party.”
