Ned Price said that these fundamental principles are human dignity, human dignity, equality of opportunity and freedom of religion or belief. These are the basic values ​​of any democracy. We are in favor of them all over the world.

Several days after the ruckus caused by controversial statements about Prophet Mohammed, America has given its word in this matter. Arab countries had reacted strongly to the objectionable statements. After this, the BJP took swift action and showed its own two leaders the way out of the party. The US has also appreciated the stand of the BJP along with condemning the controversial statements.

US State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters on Thursday that we condemn the statements of two BJP office-bearers and we are pleased to see that the BJP publicly condemned these comments.

Ned Price said during a regular press briefing that we remain in touch with the Indian government on freedom of religion and belief and human rights concerns. The US encourages India to promote respect for human rights. In the past, when Foreign Minister Antony Blinken was in Delhi, he had said that Indian and American people believe in the same values. These are fundamental principles of human dignity, human dignity, equality of opportunity and freedom of religion or belief. These are the basic values ​​of any democracy. We are in favor of them all over the world.

Let us tell you, former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma and party's Delhi unit's media in-charge Naveen Kumar Jindal had allegedly said objectionable things about Prophet Mohammad. There was a ruckus in the country and abroad regarding this. In this regard, many Arab countries expressed their objection and appealed to India for strict action. Violent demonstrations also took place in many cities of the country. After this, the BJP not only condemned the controversial statements, but also expelled both the leaders from the party. Cases have also been registered against these two leaders in the police.
