Kamlesh Tiwari called RSS-BJP people ‘Haramkhor’, accused them of conspiring to ‘kill’ him
In a video, purportedly his last, that surfaced on social media on Saturday, Tiwari is seen complaining that his security had been withdrawn (sic) as soon as Yogi Adityanath govt came to power in UP
In a video that surfaced online on Saturday, Kamlesh Tiwari, the slain president of little-known outfit Hindu Samaj Party, is seen badly slamming the RSS-BJP people (“Sangh aur Bhajpa le log”) for allegedly conspiring to kill him and calling them “haramkhor” (bastards).
This is purportedly the last video shot by Tiwari in which he is also accusing the Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government of withdrawing his security.
“If Sangh (RSS) or BJP office bearers or workers die, I never think that I should remain silent because the victims belonged to the Sangh. I only think that they are Hindus. Even if I go to jail, even if these people may well hatch conspiracies against me, but I still feel for their workers and I go out fighting for them,” a visibly upset Tiwari is seen as saying in the video.
“…I come out fighting even for these bastards (‘haramkhoro ke liye’) who are after my life, who hatch conspiracies to kill me…My security has been withdrawn (sic) as soon as Yogi (Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath) government came to power,” he further says.
“But I am still fighting and showing them that I am fighting on my own strength and I will keep fighting for the Hindus,” he concludes.
Tiwari was murdered at his home at Khursheda Bagh in Uttar Pradesh’s capital Lucknow on Friday afternoon. The police on Saturday arrested three persons in connection with the murder and termed the incident as “radical killing”.
He is said to be killed in connection with a 2015 hate speech against Muslims.
However, Tiwari’s mother questioned the official stand and demanded to know as to why her son was killed now when the BJP government is in power in Uttar Pradesh though he was safe during the “Azam Khan’s” (Samajwadi Party government) time. The BJP replaced the Akhilesh Yadav led Samajwadi Party government in the state in 2017.
Azam Khan, now Lok Sabha Member from Rampur, had been a minister in the Akhilesh Yadav government as well as earlier Samajwadi Party governments.
