UAE princess Hend bint Faisal Al Qasim has lashed out at an organizer for inviting Indian television anchor Sudhir Chaudhary to her country despite the latter’s role in promoting Islamophobia through his TV broadcasts.
How dare you invite an Islamophobe to my peaceful country?!? @icaiauh تخيلوا هذا المذيع يسب في المسلمين صبح و ليل و مدعوا لحفل عشان يتكلم و يكرم و يشرفهم في الدوله التي يسبها و يشهر فيها ؟! #هزلت #Islamophobia #MuslimHolocaust

The princess reminded the organiser how the controversial TV anchor had been routinely defaming Islam and its followers and also called him the terrorist and Islamophobe.
“In 2019 & 2020, Sudhir Chaudhry ran shows on Zee News where he spewed venom against Muslims for leading anti-citizenship protests. He ran fake stories, targeting Muslim students and women for leading the citizenship protest in Shaheen Bagh, New Delhi & other parts of the country,” the princess wrote on her official Twitter handle.
She asked the organizer, the Indian Charter Accountants Association’s Abu Dhabi chapter, why they were ‘bringing an Islamophobe and hater to my peaceful country?’
The tweet added: “Sudhir Chaudhary is a Hindu rightwing anchor known for his deeply Islamophobic shows that target India’s 200 million Muslims. Many of his prime time shows have directly contributed to real world violence against Muslims across the country.”
The princess also tagged the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India to ask, “Why are you bringing an intolerant terrorist to the UAE?!”
Pertinent to mention that Chaudhary has been at the forefront of Indian TV anchors spreading hatred against Muslims in India.
In 2020, he had led a campaign to defame Indian Muslims by blaming them for spreading coronavirus. Several Indian high courts later concluded that blaming the members of the Tablighi Jamaat for the spread of the virus was part of propaganda.
