Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan and Rahim, the state secretary of the youth wing of CPI-M have received death threats for criticising organisations like the SDPI and PFI
Bengaluru: Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan has received a death threat.
Along with him, state secretary of the youth wing of CPI-M, AA Rahim too has received a death threat.
The death threat letter further asks the men they target not to criticise organisations like the SDPI and the PFI.
A complaint has been filed by AA Rahim. In the letter, he states that if he continues to criticise the two organisations, he would be eliminated and same would be the fate of the Kerala CM as well.
“It says that Pinarayi should stop criticising outfits like PFI (Popular Front of India) and SDPI (Socialist Democratic Party of India). If he did, he would be hacked to death,” the complaint letter read.
As per a popular website, Rahim said that he found scratch marks on his car, but he chose to neglect them. But now that a letter warning him of his death has been sent, he says he needs to take it seriously.
"Recently my car was found scratched and then I did not take it seriously, but now with this letter, I am forced to think otherwise," added Rahim.
It is to be noted that Rahim is married to a Hindu woman and he has received such death threat letters earlier as well.
Another website added that P Jayarajan who is the former Kannur district secretary of the party too received a death threat.
Museum Police in the city have registered an FIR on the complaint.
It is to be noted that the chief minister had last month cautioned against the infiltration of members of extremist outfits in the protests against the CAA in the state and said the Left government would not allow any attempt to create communal disharmony in society.
Coming down on the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), he had said such "extremist" groups were trying to divide people and create law and order issues in some places under the garb of the protests.
