BNP MP Harunur Rashid on Sunday asked the government to summon Indian high commissioner and bring a motion of condemnation in Parliament for derogatory remarks by BJP leaders about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The opposition MP made the demand during a discussion on the Point of Order in Parliament.
"We all know that the whole world is protesting against the insult to our Prophet (PBUH) in India. It is also happening in Bangladesh. Most worryingly, we as a Muslim-majority country and an important member in SAARC…we are noticing with concern that the government is yet to express any protest or give any reaction on this issue."

The BNP MP also said that parliament is in session at present. “A condemnation motion must be placed in parliament.“
Harun said anti-Muslim activities in India have increased a lot in the last few years. A few days ago, controversy on hijab was created.
