Centre denies claims that Iranian minister raised Prophet row in meetings

India and Iran on Wednesday held wide-ranging talks on trade, connectivity and counter-terror cooperation in the shadow of a controversy over comments on Prophet Muhammad by members of the ruling BJP.

The Indian government has rejected reports that the issue of the controversial comments about the Prophet was raised by Iran foreign minister during his meeting with Indian officials. The government added that the Iranian readout being referred to in the reports has also been pulled down.

Earlier reports claimed that Iranian foreign minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian, who is on an official visit to India, had raised concerns about former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma’s remarks on Prophet Muhammad.

National Security Advisor Doval, according to the Iranian readout, reaffirmed the Indian government's respect for the founder of Prophet Mohammad, saying offenders will be "dealt with in such a way that others will learn a lesson".

India and Iran on Wednesday held wide-ranging talks on trade, connectivity and counter-terror cooperation in the shadow of a controversy over comments on Prophet Muhammad by members of the ruling BJP, who have since been removed and described as "fringe" by New Delhi.
