Following this, the letter expressed anger at Laskar supporting the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 – which aims at legalising persecuted illegal migrants belonging to Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism and Christianity.

Irked by Laskar’s support to the bill, the letter warns that his building can be destroyed within two minutes and he won’t survive, despite all the security around him. The letter thus demanded that Laskar quit the BJP within 15 days if he wished to stay alive.

As per a NeNow report, the threat letter was signed by a man named “Haidar Hussain Khan” who claimed to be the vice-president of the said organisation. Following the receiptal of the letter, the MLA filed a complaint at the Silchar Sadar police station.

The MLA while speaking to the media claimed that his security had been reviewed following the threats, and a total of four security guards would protect him. Besides this, he claimed that more CCTV cameras will be installed at his home.
