New Delhi, Sep 27: Asserting that India will never condone any act which disparages religious sentiments or hurts religious feelings, President Pranab Mukherjee has strongly condemned the offensive video on YouTube, which has sparked off disturbances across the globe.
“I condemn in the strongest of terms the making of the offensive video and its dissemination through social media. India can never condone any act, which disparages religious sentiments or hurts religious feelings,” said President Mukherjee in response to a media query on the offensive video on YouTube.
“The Ministry of External Affairs is in touch with US officials who share our concerns on the matter. Google India has, in compliance with Indian law, blocked access to the offensive material,” he added.
In the wake of a spiraling tide of anti-American protests in the Muslim world, the United States had reportedly earlier asked Google-owned YouTube to review continued uploading of a controversial film deemed offensive to Islam. (ANI)
