The horrific murder of Kanhaiya Lal Sahu by two Muslim men in Udaipur, Rajasthan shook the country to the core, also sparking a religious and political debate. Now, the killing of the tailor has also sparked a reaction from the international community.
Geert Wilder, who is an MP from the Netherlands, had earlier caught the limelight in India when he came out in support of former BJP leader Nupur Sharma, who was suspended from the party after she made certain objectionable remarks on Prophet Muhammad, saying that she had only ‘spoken the truth’.
Now, the Dutch MP has come forward to speak out against the killing of Kanhaiya Lal Sahu in a brutal and horrific way inside his own shop in Udaipur. Wilder said that India needs to ‘stop being tolerant to intolerance’, and to defend Hinduism against extremism.
Taking to Twitter, the Netherlands MP said, “Please India as a friend I tell you : Stop being tolerant to the intolerant. Defend Hinduism against the extremists, terrorists and jihadis. Don’t appease Islam, for it will cost you dearly. Hindus deserve leaders that protect them for the full 100%”.
Wilder also tweeted, “Hindus should be safe in India. It is their country, their homeland, it’s theirs ! India is no Islamic country”.
