Gujarat independent MLA Jignesh Mevani questioned the BJP’s purported connections to those charged with terrorist activity.
The most recent one is the capture of two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) members by locals in Reasi, Jammu & Kashmir. Talib Hussain Shah, the arrested LeT member, reportedly served as the head of the IT cell for the BJP minority morcha.
Before this, claims of Mohammad Riyaz Akhtari, one of the murders in last week’s Udaipur atrocity, having ties to the saffron movement surfaced.
On June 28, two Muslim men in Udaipur killed a tailor named Kanhaiya Lal, setting off a nationwide outcry. Mevani claimed on Twitter that terrorist strikes are beginning to reveal BJP connections.
BJP Denies Accusations
On Saturday, Congressman Pawan Khera claimed that Akhtari had attended a gathering of BJP leaders. He was referred to as “Bhai” by BJP leaders. What is going on in this nation? Irshad Chainwala, Gulab Chand Kataria, and Mohammad Tahir, all leaders in the Rajasthan BJP, were there when Khera shared images of Akhtari.
However, BJP has refuted any connections to the murderer of Udaipur. Chainwala stated, “The photo is from when he came from a pilgrimage, and someone else had brought him to me.”
Chainwala, the president of the BJP’s Udaipur minority cell, responded that he was unaware of Akhtari’s involvement in party activity. He added that Akhtari was not a party worker when asked if he was.
Meanwhile, Congress has claimed that one of the terrorists was a former in-charge of the BJP’s minority morcha IT cell. The accusation came from the Reasi district, where villagers apprehended the two most sought LeT terrorists.
The BJP has also refuted any connections to the captured LeT terrorist. Hussain was not a primary member of the BJP, according to Ravinder Raina, the president of the BJP’s Jammu and Kashmir branch.
Raina further stated that Shah is not a member of the BJP in the organization’s official records. He continued, “Although the cops are probing the entire situation, it appears that he performed BJP office patrol and mine as well.”
