Newshub18 : US condemns Nupur Sharma issue by increasing pressure on India
This time the voice is the United States. Nupur Sharma’s remarks about Hazrat Mohammad in an international arena were followed by two more BJP spokespersons making similarly controversial remarks. The United States has strongly condemned them. Experts believe that after the Islamic countries, the pressure increased as the US commented on the prophet debate. However, the Biden administration also praised the way the BJP has taken action against the two incumbents.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price said in an interview with an international media outlet that he strongly condemned the remarks made by the two Indian government officials. But at the same time, he is happy to see that the remarks have been publicly condemned by the BJP.
Ned added that the United States has always consulted with top officials about protecting India’s human rights and religious freedom. They have always encouraged the Government of India to focus on the protection of human rights.
A number of Islamic countries, such as Kuwait, Qatar, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, the Maldives, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain, Oman and Afghanistan, have already spoken out against the remarks made by the two BJP spokespersons. But this time, the diplomatic community is saying that it is very important for Nupur Sharma to use the debate as a tool to make America a new voice
