Mumbai: Rajasthan Hindu Sena activists have threatened to kill the youth president of the Maharashtra unit of Samajwadi Party, Farhan Azmi, his wife actor Ayesha Takia, son and even his legislator father Abu Asim Azmi.
The Hindu Sena activists called up Farhan on Monday night and made the threats. “Ask your father Abu Azmi to stop shouting like an animal else he will be bumped off. Also tell the son of #$% (sic) Owaisi that he too will not be spared,” Farhan claimed. When Farhan tried to downplay the warning, the caller threatened him for marrying Bollywood actor Ayesha Takia, a Hindu. “You all are animals. Have you forgotten that you have indulged in Love Jihad by marrying a Hindu girl?” the callers reportedly told Farhan.
Sources said that Farhan told the callers that if marrying a Hindu girl was a problem, they should move court or meet him personally. “This is a personal matter. Kindly reveal your name, name of the organisation, before you go any further,” Farhan told them. The Rajasthan Hindu Sena seemed unhappy with Azmi’s stand on Azaan. He had opposed a tweet by singer Suchitra Krishnamoorty wherein she had objected to loudspeakers being used for Azaan. Azmi and Farhan will file a police complaint on Wednesday.
