India on Thursday hit out at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation for its statement on the Delhi violence, saying the comments are factually inaccurate and misleading.
Ministry of external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar also urged bodies like the OIC not to make irresponsible statements at this sensitive time.
"The statements which have come out of OIC are factually inaccurate, they are selective, they are misleading. There is an effort on the ground, to restore normalcy, to create confidence," Kumar said.
"We urge these bodies not to indulge in irresponsible statements at this sensitive time," he said.
The OIC has condemned the violence in Delhi and alleged discrimination against Muslims. In a statement the OIC said it ‘condemns the recent & alarming violence against Muslims in #India, resulting in the death & injury of innocent people & the arson and vandalism of mosques and Muslim-owned properties. It expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the victims of these heinous acts.’
The communal violence over the amended citizenship law in northeast Delhi has claimed at least 34 lives and left over 200 people injured.
