“We are looking at around 3,000 to 4,000 people to express their aspirations condemning the depravity and barbarism and the behaviour of the Zionist-like India government who is insolent, racist, fascist and Islamophobic,” Azis was quoted as saying by detik, Thursday (16/6).

“We call for an end to Islamophobia in India. Stop the oppression of Muslims in India. Stop insulting and blaspheming Islam in India. Or expel the Indian Ambassador. Boycott Indian products. Expel Indians,” Azis asserted.

On February 25, PA 212 also protested in front of the Indian Embassy to express their solidarity with Indian Muslims who they said suffered oppression in India. (rr)
