Asaduddin Owaisi, President of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), has received a threat from the Islamic State. However, he told News Nation that he is not bothered by the threat.
“I am not sure if they are ISIS sympathisers or IS militants, but I am not bothered by the threat. I get hundreds such threats everyday,” he said.
The Hyderabad MP says he was warned by the ISIS terror group on Twitter to keep his mouth shut.
“Its better for you to shut your mouth on Islamic State if you don't know the truth, IslamicState will invade india soon (sic),” a Twitter handle in the name of @abotalout warned Owaisi.
A second tweet read: “Your Disgrace for Muslims of India. Opposing islamicstate will lead you to hell only repent before end (sic).” The tweets have apparently been made from an ISIS managed account.
It is believed that the threatening tweets have emerged after the AIMIM chief recently spoke against the ISIS.
