The India Story Episode 10 | Gulf backlash: Balancing act required?

Amid backlash over remarks by BJP spokespersons about Prophet Muhammad, is a careful balancing act required? Vikram Chandra speaks to experts on how the govt should navigate relations with the Gulf.

References to Islam by the ruling party’s now-suspended spokespersons have put India on the defensive on the global stage. At least 17 countries have protested against the comments, summoning Indian envoys and releasing statements condemning the remarks. In a bid to firefight the backlash, New Delhi has responded, calling the two saffron leaders ‘fringe elements’.
