Markandey Katju urges Muslims not to get provoked by 'nude pics' posted on Twitter during Ramzan
“Provocative pictures are being shown on Social Media to hurt Muslim sentiments during Ramzan,” the former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju tweeted.
New Delhi: It seems that the loud-mouth former Press Council of India chairman and Supreme Court of India judge Markandey Katju has a say on everything.
This time, on Friday, the ex-apex court judge tweeted: “Provocative pictures are being shown on Social Media to hurt Muslim sentiments during Ramzan.”
While explaining the 'provocative pictures', Katju wrote on his Facebook page, “One such pic shows that a woman is standing on top of Kaaba, exposing her naked breasts, after casting aside her burqa.”

“Another shows two naked girls lying on a beach, with caption 'It is Ramzan. No bikinis please',” Katju further quoted the tweets which are doing round the corners on Twitter.
However, Katju published an advise for the Muslims asking them not to get provoked by such tweets.
"My advise to Muslims is not to get provoked, and to ignore this. This is the work of agent provocateurs. If you get provoked, and react to it, that is just what these people want, so that the matter flares up, and the communal divide gets further aggravated," Katju wrote on FB.
The Muslim holy month of Ramadan has begun across the country from Tuesday.
The worshipers are thronging in to various mosques to offer special night prayer called Traweeh, which will continue throughout the month.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The believers observe fast and join mass prayers held at mosques across the world during the period. This annual observance is regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam.
