BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain proposes Prophet Muhammad museum in India
Senior BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain has proposed that a museum on the life and times of Prophet Muhammad be built in India, home to the second largest Muslim population in the world.

Hussain, during a recent official trip to Saudi Arabia, visited an exhibition-cum-museum on the life and times of the Prophet in Mecca, and invited Nasir Al-Zahrani, general supervisor of the ‘Assalamu Alaika Ayyuha Annabiyyu’ project to open a branch of the museum in India.

The museum, which already has a branch in Dubai, is planning to open 20 branches across the world, the Saudi Gazette reported yesterday.

“You have done a great service to the Muslim Ummah through your research on the life and times of the Prophet. I invite you to open a branch of this museum in India, which has the second largest Muslim population in the world after Indonesia,” Hussain was quoted as saying by the paper. The leader visited Saudi Arabia as chairman of the long- term pilgrim accommodation selection committee.

Al-Zahrani, who has written a 500-volume encyclopedia on the Prophet, said he would love to have a branch of the museum in India and pointed out that he has drawn inspiration from many Indian Muslim scholars during his seven-year research.
