Charges of disobedience to order, a threat to a public servant, provoking breach of peace and criminal intimidation has been slapped on the 24-year-old accused, M Mohammed Shareef, a resident of Marsingpet in Trichy. Videos of his speech delivered during a street corner meeting of the party had gone viral on social media. He was arrested five days later.

The TMMK functionary says in the video, “If we had only been thinking of Muslims, Amit Shah wouldn’t be alive at this moment, Narendra Modi wouldn’t be alive and Parliament wouldn’t be Parliament. But we have not done that. Why? Because we have respect for India’s laws, democracy and Constitution”.
