“Hindus Living In Muslim Nations…”: UAE Princess Hits Out Over K’taka Ban On Muslim Vendors

UAE princess Hend bint Faisal Al Qasim, who has been critical of the Modi regime in India, has once again taunted the Indian government over the issue of Muslim vendors not being allowed to erect stalls around Hindu temples. 

The ban on Muslim vendors at temple fairs has spread to more Karnataka districts with the organisers of the March-May annual festivals at the shrines choosing to follow a diktat from Hindutva outfits.

What had begun at a Shimoga temple and was followed by more in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi has spread to shrines in Tumkur, Hassan, Chikmagalur and other districts.

Hend bint Faisal Al Qasim, reacting to the news, wrote how many Hindus reside in specific Gulf countries, and how Hindus there have not faced similar threats. 

Taking to Twitter, the princess wrote: “No of Hindus living in some Muslim nations

1.Indonesia- 4,480,000

2.Malaysia- 2,040,000

3.UAE- 910,000





8.Saudi -370,000

None of these nations have ever prevented Hindus from doing business near mosques.”

This is not the first time that the outspoken princess have spoken against the rising intolerance in India against minorities. Earlier, Hend bint Faisal Al Qasim had lashed out at an organiser for inviting Zee News anchor Sudhir Chaudhary to her country despite the latter’s role in promoting Islamophobia through his TV broadcasts. Addressing Chaudhary as a ‘terrorist,’ the UAE princess reminded the organiser how the controversial TV anchor had been routinely defaming Islam and its followers.

Before that, she had called out Islamophobic tweets by one Indian user residing in the UAE. Sharing the screenshots of the user’s tweet, the princess had warned that those engaging in racism and Islamophobia will have to pay penalty and will be made to leave UAE.
