ISF leader arrested for attacking TMC members

Earlier on Sunday, the police had arrested another ISF worker by the name of Younis Sarkar for attacking Trinamool Congress (TMC) party members in Bhangar in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal. Younus, an aide of the Sufi cleric and ISF leader Pirzada Abbas Siddiqui, was nabbed after the police analysed the CCTV footage and found that he was leading the mob.

The 24-year-old ISF founder, Abbas Siddiqui, has been infamous for his incendiary rhetoric, fear-mongering and calls for ‘divine intervention’ for the death of 50 crore Indians. Despite being well-aware of his extremist views, the Left and the Congress party has joined hands with Siddiqui to gain political mileage and strengthen its hold over the Muslim vote bank. The Election Commission of India on Friday announced an eight-phased Assembly poll for West Bengal beginning March 27. The counting of votes will take place on May 2.
