‘Nude pics’ posted on Twitter during Ramzan, I urge Muslims not to get provoked: Katju

New Delhi: Former Supreme Court Judge Markandey Katju, known for sparking off rows with his controversial statements, is at it again.

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.

“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.
