China has reacted after violent protests erupted in some Indian cities over alleged controversial remarks about the Prophet Muhammad made by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma. She is currently suspended.
In a daily press briefing from a Chinese TV station, the country’s foreign ministry said Monday (June 13) that it hoped “the situation will be properly resolved”. Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin was asked about Sharma’s recent comments about the Prophet Muhammad.
While responding to the same, Wenbin said, “We have taken note of the relevant information and hope the situation will be properly resolved. China always believes that different civilizations and religions should respect each other and live together as equals.
“It is always important to discard pride and prejudice, better understand the differences between one’s own civilization and other civilizations, and promote exchanges, dialogue and harmonious coexistence among civilizations,” Wenbin added.
