Kuala Lumpur, August 26 (KMS): Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Organization (MAPIM) condemned India’s Narendra Modi receiving the UAE highest civilian award amid the ongoing Kashmir crisis and atrocious treatment of Muslim majority state by Modi led BJP government.

The MAPIM in a statement issued in Kuala Lumpur said, “We register our disgust and abhorrence to India’s Narendra Modi receiving the UAE honour…It is outrageous and shameful for the UAE to honour Modi the highest civilian medal knowing very well the world is equating Modi as an oppressor of minority communities in India.”

“The UAE is blinded by the economic gains it anticipates to derive with India while Modi has his hands full of blood from his victims of massacre in Gujarat and Kashmir,” the statement said. “It is only recently that the world was shocked by the annexation of Kashmir by India when it decided to strike out the Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, stripping Kashmir of its special status.” »
