Kuwait joins Saudi-Qatar-Oman to reject anti-India propaganda

Anti-India social media is making propaganda in Gulf countries that Muslims are being harassed in India.

New Delhi – Kuwait, after Oman, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have, rejected attempts to spoil ties with India through ‘foreign sponsored’ social media handles and posts.

The Kuwaiti government’s move won praises from Delhi. In response to media queries, the official spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said, “We have seen certain references to India in non-official social media handles in Kuwait. The Government of Kuwait has assured us that they are deeply committed to friendly relations with India. They also do not support any interference in the internal affairs of India,” MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said.

Recently on the request of Kuwait, India recently deployed a Rapid Response Team there to assist the country in its fight against coronavirus. During its two week stay in Kuwait, the team rendered valuable medical assistance in testing and treatment of afflicted persons and training their personnel.
