Leading a protest against alleged derogatory remarks by self-proclaimed Hindu Mahasabha leader Kamlesh Tiwari against Prophet Muhammad, Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawwad demanded capital punishment for state minority welfare minister Azam Khan alleging him for giving inflammatory statements.

“Kamlesh Tiwari should be hanged for his statement but same punishment should also be given to a Muslim minister (Azam) whose statement triggered Tiwari’s statement,” Jawwad said while addressing protesters outside Asafi Mosque in Lucknow after Friday prayers.
Kamlesh Tiwari had called Prophet Muhammad the first homosexual in the world 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.

“The punishment for this act in Islamic Shariah is death. Nothing will happen by imposing NSA and he should be hanged. If state government fails to do this, it will be considered that it is also hand in glove in this act,” Jawwad said.

Alleging Azam’s role behind the Tiwari’s controversial statement, the 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. Presently, anti-Islamic forces are mentally torturing Muslims and hence such controversial statements are being given. This Muslim minister is tarnishing the image of the government. After his controversial statement, Tiwari gathered courage to issue derogatory statement against Prophet Muhammad.”

          Thats because our religion gives us the freedom to practice it as per our faith.Its not binding on anyone to rigidly follow it.

            We have to punish all terror attackers. We need to hang them. Then we can talk. Since 1947 cross border terrorism is going on and our solider were killed is cross fire. Is that fair?
