UP Navnirman Sena to challenge bail plea of Kamlesh Tiwari

Press Trust of India  |  Meerut 

The Navnirman Sena today said it would oppose the bail plea of Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha leader Kamlesh Tiwari, arrested for his alleged derogatory remarks against the Muslim community.

"We have come to know that Kamlesh Tiwari has filed a plea at the Lucknow bench of the High seeking bail... We have hired a senior advocate to challenge the bail plea to make sure that he doesn't come out of jail and poison the communal harmony of the country," UPNS president Amit Jani said.

Jani said his outfit does not differentiate between people like AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Tiwari, claiming that both of them are trying to divide the society by speaking against each other's religion.

UPNS will protest against the supporters of Owaisi in and will not allow them to enter Muzaffarnagar where the assembly bypolls are set to be held soon, Jani said.

Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha leader Tiwari was arrested in Lucknow on December 2, two days after he made the alleged derogatory remarks against the Muslim community which led to massive protests here and various other regions of the country.
