Various parts of Punjab witnessed protests over the inflammatory remarks of the suspended Bharatiya Janata Party leader Nupur Sharma and expelled party leader Naveen Jindal.

"After the protest call by Ludhiana Jama Masjid, protests were held across Punjab demanding the arrest of those who disrespected the Prophet," said Shahi Imaam of Ludhiana Jama Masjid.

Meanwhile, protests against Sharma and Jindal have been reported from various parts of the country, including Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh. As per the reports, a massive protest broke out at Delhi's Jama Masjid which have been later brought under control after the police removed protestors from the protest site.

"No call for protest given by Masjid. We don't know who are the ones protesting, I think they belong to AIMIM or are Owaisi's people. We made it clear that if they want to protest, they can, but we will not support them," Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid told media persons.
