Barely one month into the Hindu activist Kamlesh Tiwari brutal murder by radical Islamists, his wife has allegedly received a letter written in Urdu last week in which she has been threatened with murder.
The letter was allegedly written by one Ganesh Nago Rao Apte from Latur, Maharashtra. An FIR has been lodged against him.
Kiran Tiwari, the wife of the Hindu activist who was brutally murdered on October 18, 2019, received a sealed envelope at her residence in Khurshed Bagh, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh on the afternoon of November 14. On opening the envelope Kiran saw a nine-page letter addressed to her, out of which 2 pages had something written in Urdu. After she got the letter translated, she learnt that someone had, in the letter, threatened to kill her.
It is pertinent to note here that Kiran Tiwari had after her husband’s murder, filed an FIR against three people including Maulana Anwarul Haq, the head Imam of Jama Masjid in Bijnor, who had once offered Rs 51 lakh to behead Kamlesh Tiwari over his remarks against Prophet Muhammad.
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.
A month back, on the 18th of October, Hindu activist and leader of the Hindu Samaj Party, Kamlesh Tiwari, was brutally murdered by Jihadis at his office in Lucknow. He was shot and his throat was slit by the murderers. Since then, the investigation has seen numerous developments and various people have been arrested for their involvement in the murder.
The two main accused, Moinuddin, along with Ashfaq, were arrested by Gujarat ATS on October 22 after being on the run for four days. While Moinuddin worked as Zomato delivery boy, Ashfaq, second man arrested for the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari, worked as a medical representative in a pharma company. He had forged his colleague’s Aadhaar to pose as Rohit Solanki, a Hindu rights activist, to gain the trust of Tiwari.
