UAE-based Egyptian Islamic scholar Dr. Omar Abdelkafy said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel on June 6, 2022 that Indian goods and products should be boycotted in response to the recent controversy sparked by Nupur Sharma, the national spokesperson of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, when she reportedly "insulted" Islam, the Prophet Muhammad, and Muhammad’s wife Aisha. Dr. Abdelkafy said that Indians are free to worship cows, mice, or cockroaches as they please, but that "the insults must stop before they reach the Prophet Muhammad."
Dr. Omar Abdelkafy: "The people in the world, and especially [in India] the — their god is the dinar, the dirham, and the dollar. Hit them in what they worship, which is money. Boycott their products. Boycott their stores. Boycott the goods they export to us. Then, they will take heed, and silence those who try to hurl insults about [the Prophet Muhammad], or prepare another affront.
"Ghandi himself used to say: 'my mother breastfed me for only two years, but Mother Cow breastfed me throughout the year,' because he was a cow worshipper. Man, whatever... Worship cows, worship mice, worship cockroaches... You are free to do as you like, but [the insults] must stop before they reach the Prophet Muhammad. "
