The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) canceled the primary membership of spokesperson Nupur Sharma and leader Naveen Jindal due to controversial remarks about Prophet Mohammad. An FIR has also been registered against both of them in this case. Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has praised the Indian government for this decision. Shoaib Akhtar has issued his statement through Twitter.
He wrote, ‘The respect of Prophet Muhammad is everything for us. Our living and dying and whatever we do is only and only for them. I strongly condemn the derogatory words said about our beloved Prophet Muhammad. I welcome the decision of the Indian government to suspend the people who did this shameful act. The Indian government should decide that action against such people and such things should not happen again.
