Stop Muslim massacre: Leader warns India

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has condemned the ongoing massacre of Muslim in India, warning New Delhi that it should either stop the trend or face global isolation.

“The hearts of Muslims all over the world are grieving over the massacre of Muslims in India,” Ayatollah Khamenei said Thursday, in a twitter statement posted in Urdu, English and Farsi..

“The govt. of India should confront extremist Hindus & their parties & stop the massacre of Muslims in order to prevent India’s isolation from the world of Islam,” the tweet added.

The Leader condemned the brutal killing of more than 40 Muslims during a four-day span of violence that began in New Delhi on February 23.

During the bout of violence, which shed light on India’s long-running mistreatment of its Muslim minority, Hindu mobsters set mosques on fire and brunt Muslims alive in their homes. Several Muslim men and women were by dragged out of their houses and lynched by the Hindus.

Hundreds more were also injured during the melee.

Hindus attacked the Muslims as they were holding peaceful protests against the new Indian citizenship law that allows immigrants from six neighboring countries to become citizens but excludes Muslims.
