Azam Khan extends support even as police files case against SP’s Nahid Hasan for asking Muslims to boycott shops run by BJP supporters

Kairana police taking cognisance of the incident have initiated the process of filing an FIR against the lawmaker for allegedly trying to disrupt harmony in the region.

The Samajwadi Party MLA from Kairana, Uttar Pradesh, Nahid Hasan, stoked controversy yesterday, after he asked the local Muslim population living in the communally sensitive Kairana in Uttar Pradesh, to ‘boycott’ shops run by BJP supporters.

After a video showing, Nahid Hasan appealing to the local Muslims went viral on social media, the Kairana police taking cognisance of the incident, had initiated the process of filing an FIR against the lawmaker, for allegedly trying to disrupt harmony in the region.

A case has been registered in Karana Kotwali against the MLA at around 10 pm on the order of the Shamli SP Ajay Kumar Pandey.

Reacting to the incident the SP, investigating the matter said that according to their investigations the video was not a doctored one, “At the end, he (MLA) said ‘phaila do’, which meant he wanted the video to go viral,” Pandey said. “In view of any law and order situation, we have initiated the process of filing an FIR against the lawmaker since it was meant to incite passions.”

Notably, Kairana in Uttar Pradesh is a communally sensitive area which witnessed an exodus of Hindus during the Samajwadi Party government led by Akhilesh Yadav.

Meanwhile, the controversial SP leader, Azam Khan, infamous for making lewd and sexist remarks came out in support of his colleague. In a veiled attack at the BJP and its supporters, Khan said, “It is sad, that such a situation arose. But who is responsible for it? We stayed back in India during the partition. Mahatma Gandhi had assured us that this nation as much ours as it is anyone else’s,” said the SP leader.

Notably, the Samajwadi Party leader, Azam Khan, is currently facing trouble as the Uttar Pradesh government is contemplating to declare him a land mafia after as many as 13 cases of land grabbing were reported against him.

He had recently, in a sympathetic statement towards the Muslim community, stated that the ‘mob lynching’ incidents are the ‘punishment Muslims are getting for 1947’. Speaking to ANI, the Rampur MP stated, “Muslims will face it whatever it maybe”. He further added, “Why did not our ancestors go to Pakistan? Ask this to Nehru, Maulana Azad, Sardar Patel and Bapu. They had made promises to Muslims”.

Khan had reportedly made this statement after the incident in Bihar where 3 cattle thieves were beaten to death by villagers.
