Yesterday, the wife of Kamlesh Tiwari had filed a complaint with the police and the police, in turn, had filed an FIR against 3 persons, including Maulana Haq for conspiring to commit murder.

The UP government has also given some vital information regarding the investigation into the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari. In a series of tweets, the UP govt has said that the investigation is ongoing and that the police has found some vital clues that would help them nab the killers.

Kamlesh Tiwari was arrested by the then Akhilesh Yadav government for his remarks against Prophet Mohammad’s sexuality in 2015. Muslim groups in Deoband, Saharanpur and West Bengal had launched massive riots and protests demanding Tiwari’s death.

Kamlesh Tiwari had remained in jail or over a year after the National Security Act was slapped on him. In September 2016, the Allahabad HC had finally quashed the NSA  charges against him and he was released later. The arrest and subsequent charges on Kamlesh Tiwari over remarks against Prophet Muhammad had caused an outrage in the nation, especially among Hindu groups.

In Kaliachak, Malda, West Bengal, Muslims had engaged in rampant violence and riots while ‘protesting’ against Tiwari’s remarks. Over 2.5 lakh Muslims had gathered in Kaliachak and had looted shops, burnt buses and had set fire to a police station to express their anger over Tiwari’s remarks. Tiwari had stated that Prophet Mohammad was the first homosexual in the world.

Tiwari’s remarks had come after SP leader Azam Khan’s statement that RSS members are homosexuals.
