Muslim body that extended legal and financial support to Kamlesh Tiwari’s murderers requests Sonia Gandhi not to support Shiv Sena

Notably, this is the same Islamic organisation which had met the families of the five Islamists arrested for brutally murdering Hindu activist Kamlesh Tiwari for allegedly insulting the Prophet of Islam in 2015.

After extending legal and financial support to the Islamists accused in the Kamlesh Tiwari murder, the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, which roughly translates to Council of Indian Muslim Theologians belonging to the Deobandi school of thought has written to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi asking her to refrain from considering an alliance with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra.

In a letter dated November 18, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind president, Arshad Madani has denounced the move by calling it “unfortunate.” It reads that an alliance with Shiv Sena is “very dangerous” and “harmful” for the grand old party.

Madani in his letter to Sonia Gandhi wrote, I want to draw your kind attention regarding Maharashtra’s bad politics, and it’s really unfortunate that you are considering to support Shiv Sena. It will be a very dangerous and harmful step for Congress party.
