Jaipur: History-sheeter Salman Chishti, who threatened to kill suspended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma, has been arrested by the police. In a video going viral on social media, Salman Chishti is talking about giving his house and money to those who beheaded Nupur Sharma.
After the video went viral, Ajmer Police arrested Salman Chishti last night. Additional Superintendent of Police Vikas Sangwan said that the Ajmer Police has arrested Salman Chishti for allegedly making provocative statements against Nupur Sharma.
Let us tell you that in the video going viral, Salman Chishti is talking about shooting and killing Nupur Sharma. Along with this, in the video, he is also saying that whoever kills Nupur Sharma, he will give money and his house as a reward. He said in the video, ‘You have to answer all Muslim countries. I am saying this from Ajmer Rajasthan and this message is from the court of Huzur Khwaja Baba.
Recently, four people were arrested in connection with another provocative speech allegedly delivered at the main gate of the Ajmer Dargah on June 17.
Though that video was in circulation earlier, the arrests were made after the murder a week back of an Udaipur tailor by two men who said they were avenging an insult to Islam.
Hours after the Udaipur murder that triggered communal tension in the state, the two main accused were caught by police. Three others were arrested later and the National Investigation Agency is now handling the case.
Condemning the latest video, the office of Ajmer Dargah Dewan Zainul Abedin Ali Khan said the shrine is seen as a place of communal harmony. The views expressed by the khadim’ in the video cannot be considered a message from the dargah, it said.
It added that the remarks were a statement by one individual and were highly condemnable.
Nupur Sharma was suspended by her party over a remark on Prophet Mohammad during a television debate that outraged the Muslim community.
