A Muslim cleric from the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP) has filed a complaint with police against secular humanist writer Taslima Nasreen for tweets that allegedly “hurt religious sentiments.” The UP police have prepared a “First Information Report” (FIR) in the stage of investigation against Nasreen. The complaint was filed at the Kotwali police station on behalf of Maulana Subhan Raza Khan Subhani Miyan, leader of the Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat, by his son Hasan Raza Khan Noori Miyan for the following tweets:
Indians shd speak up against fanatics who vitiate society& push it backward& politicians who encourage them. Else,it's bad news for democracy
Since independence, Indian politicians have been seeking help of clerics who don't respect human rights,free speech and the Constitution.
Indian Politicians Encouraging Fanatics
Taslima Nasreen had tweeted criticism of Indian politician Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) meeting and seeking the endorsement of the Muslim cleric Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan, who had earlier issued a fatwa (decree) against Nasreen's writings being “anti-Islam.” One of Nasreen's tweets pointed out that in March, 2007 Maulana Tauqeer had called for the killing and beheading of Taslima Nasreen and offered a reward of 500,000 Indian rupees from the “All India Ibtehad Council” for that purpose. The same cleric had also offered 10 million Indian rupees for the assassination of former U.S. President George W. Bush in the same year.
