Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawwad demanded capital punishment for alleged derogatory remarks by Hindu Mahasabha leader Kamlesh Tiwari against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and state minority welfare minister Azam Khan
Jawwad said that, “Kamlesh Tiwari should be hanged for his statement but same punishment should also be given to Azam Khan whose statement triggered Tiwari’s statement,”
Kamlesh Tiwari made blasphemous remark against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in a press note issued by him. He had allegedly also circulated pamphlets against the Muslim community. His remarks had come a day after UP cabinet minister Azam Khan had called RSS members homosexuals.
Tiwari was arrested on Wednesday after several Muslim youths launched massive protests against the leader and even torched his effigies.
Alleging Azam’s role behind the Tiwari’s controversial statement, the Shia cleric said, all this happened due to conspiracy of Hindu Mahasabha and the minister (Azam) so that Muslims and Hindus continue fighting and votes are divided.
Anti-Islamic forces are mentally torturing Muslims and hence such controversial statements are being given.
