Rajasthan Police on Thursday arrested high court lawyer’s clerk (munshi) Sohail Khan from Jodhpur for threatening a Hindu colleague who supported Nupur Sharma. The arrest comes after another lawyer’s munshi lodged a complaint with Rajasthan High Court Clerks Association demanding security, reports Times of India.
The HC administration informed police and filed an FIR against the accused. Police initially detained the munshi and later arrested him. According to Kudi Bhagtasni SHO Sumerdan, a munshi of the high court, Mahendra Singh Rajpurohit, had posted a Whatsapp status in support of Nupur Sharma.
“Reacting to it, another munshi Sohail Khan threatened Rajpurohit over the phone. When Rajpurohit stopped responding to his phone calls, he whatsapped him and said he would sever his head”, said the officer.
As per another report, Sohail Khan made the threat in person when the two Munshis came face to face in the high court premises. Sohail Khan reportedly threatened Mahendra, saying, “Why did you write this? I will make your situation similar to Kanhaiyalal of Udaipur.”
Several Hindus across the country have been receiving death threats and worse for expressing any sort of opinion in support of the beleaguered former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, whose comments were quoted out of context by Islamist radical Md. Zuabir to paint a target on her back and instigate the global ummah.
At least two Hindus, Kanhaiyalal Teli and Umesh Kolhe, have been brutally murdered in Bharat in the wake of the global jihadi and left-liberal campaign against Nupur, while others in Bagalkot (Karnataka) and Bihar have been brutally attacked with some in critical condition. There have been a spate of Islamist attacks in Bangladesh too on the persecuted Hindu minority, and one woman Nupur Saha was gangraped and murdered allegedly to avenge Nupur Sharma’s “blasphemy”.
