Bengaluru: The Bengaluru bomb blast accused and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Abdul Nazer Mahdani, has emotionally responded to the Ayodhya verdict by the Supreme Court. He said he would not accept the verdict and his facebook post has garnered communal charged comments from his followers.
Currently, the hardliner Muslim leader is in hospital under police protection and it is from here that he has posted this emotionally charged post that could spark communal tensions. Another worrying fact is that the post has attracted many comments which are highly communal in nature. Some posts say that Babri Masjid equals Babri Masjid only and a 1000 mosques in its place would not be equal. Another comment accuses the judicial system for falling prey in the hands of Hindutva forces.
Surprisingly, Mahdani’s communally charged post comes when there are strict restrictions on social media against posting such inflammatory ideas and comments.
Abdul Nazer Mahdani is a controversial Muslim leader who was at the forefront of communal politics in Kerala since the 1990’s. He was accused of being involved in Coimbatore blast that took place in 1998, which was targeted against L. K. Advani.
Though, Mahdani was acquitted in the Coimbatore bomb blast case, he was again arrested for his involvement in the Bengaluru bomb blast. It is reported that he made contacts with dreaded terror outfit LeT. Mahdani was in contact with Thadiyanteavide Nazeer who is the main terrorist behind the bomb blast in Bengaluru.
