- A man in Rajasthan's Ajmer offers his house, property to anyone who will behead Nupur Sharma
- He gave this statement after listening to Nupur Sharma's controversial remarks on Prophet Mohammad
- The man was reportedly identified as Salman Chishti
Syed Salman Chisti, a history-sheeter and khadim (priest) of the Ajmer dargah, has offered his house and property to anyone who beheads BJP leader Nupur Sharma, now suspended. In a video that is widely being circulated on social media platforms, Salman Chisti can be seen making an appeal to kill Sharma for her remarks involving Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam.
Salman Chisti in the 2 minutes 50 second-long video abused Nupur Sharma and said that the BJP leader has betrayed the pride of Khwaja Saheb and Mohammad Saheb, in such a situation, he will give his house and his landed property to the one who will bring him her head.
Salman Chisti who claims in the video that he is from the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisty in Ajmer said that a person like Nupur should not have the right to live. He then alleged that Muslims are being persecuted and killed across the country.
After the video went viral, Ajmer police registered a case against him and raided his house on Tuesday morning. He, however, managed to escape.
Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Vikas Sangwan said that he has received the video through WhatsApp in which Salman Chishti is seen in a state of intoxication.
"Accused Salman is a resident of the Chishti Dargah police station area, police are looking for Salman. He will be soon caught and legal action will be taken against him," Sangwan said.
Earlier on June 28, a man was beheaded by two men (Ghous Mohd and Riyaz Mohd) in Udaipur's Maldas street area for a social media post backing Nupur Sharma's comments on Prophet. The two men posted a video boasting about the beheading and threatened PM Modi's life as well.
Last month, Nupur Sharma allegedly made remarks against Prophet during a television news debate on the Gyanvapi issue when a few speakers (representing the other side) made a mockery of Lord Shiva by comparing Shivling to cylindrical pillars on Delhi roads.
