NEW DELHI: The Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) of India condemned the murder of Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor in Udaipur, Rajasthan who expressed support for suspended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma over her derogatory comments about Prophet Mohammed. SIO called for a thorough investigation of the incident. The student organisation also said that the culprits should be punished according to the law.

"The incident highlights the dangers of letting communalism and intolerance fester in the society for narrow political and ideological gains. The government and the media must share the blame for giving a free hand to hatemongers and polarising the country. We appeal to our fellow countrymen to maintain peace, harmony and solidarity in this hour of grief," SIO said in a statement.
