-Corona pandemic and the many deaths and cremations in India is because of ‘blasphemy’ by Narsinghanand
-Hindus, do tauba otherwise your dead bodies won’t be cremated but eaten by cheel-kawwe
-Ae pandit Narsinghanand, accept our Islam pic.twitter.com/CWwa75pLab
The video appeared to be of some Friday as he mentioned they had gathered after Friday prayers. He said, “We are ready to sacrifice our lives for our Prophet. Muslims around the world can tolerate anything, but they will not tolerate anything against the Prophet. We want to tell the Delhi Government that the reason behind so many deaths in Delhi leaving no space for cremation is Hindutvawadi.”
While claiming that derogatory comments against Islam and Prophet are the main reason behind the pandemic, he added, “Hindus, there is still time. Ask Prophet for forgiveness. Otherwise, you will not find space for cremation and vultures and hyenas will eat your dead bodies. If you want liberation from rebirth, read Kalma and become Muslim.”
