Qatar broadcaster Al-Jazeera reports that Mohammed Zubair has been arrested for his 2018 tweet. In fact, the case of Nupur Sharma was loudly raised by Mohammad Jubair. Later this issue became an issue in the Islamic countries across the border and then the Islamic countries issued statements one by one against India. Mohammed Zubair is also currently under arrest for insulting religious sentiments.

Amjad Taha, the regional head of the British Center for the Middle East, also reacted to the killings in Udaipur. He wrote on his Twitter account, “The attack in Udaipur is seen as being carried out by Islamic terrorists targeting Hindus. Condemn it. Support India in the war on terror.
