DHNS||Gulbarga: Members of Bharat Mukti Morcha and Popular Front of India staged a protest demanding quashing of the FIR filed against AIMPLB spokesman Maulana Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nomani, in front of the Mini Vidhana Soudha here on Wednesday.
The protesters alleged that the Chairman of the UP Shia Central Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi had filed a complaint against Nomani at Hazratganj Police Station in UP for inciting the Muslims, spreading religious hatred and affecting the integrity of the nation at a meeting held in Hyderabad on February 9. The statement made by Nomani was distorted and misrepresented by Rizvi, they said.
Claiming that the FIR filed against Nomani was politically motivated, they demanded quashing of the same. “FIR should be filed against Rizwi who filed misleading FIR against Nomani,” they said and added that FIR should also be filed against Shri Shri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living for threatening muslims in the country recently.
PFI Gulbarga unit president Shaik Aejaz Ali, Morcha district unit president Maruthi Ganjagiri, SDPI gulbarga north MLA candidate Md Mohsin and others were present.
