New Delhi:  The BJP MLA Aminul Haque Laskar representing the Sonai constituency in Cachar district has received a threat from an unknown organisation 'Save Secure and Development Protection Force of Muslim, Barak Valley Zone to leave the party in 15 days for him a being a Muslim.  An FIR has been filed against unknown persons after Laskar received the letter along with two bullets.

"We have registered an FIR against unknown persons for a threatening letter to Laskar on Sunday. Two live cartridges of .32 pistol also came with the letter," Silchar Police Station Officer-in-Charge Indrajit Chakraborty said.

The case was registered under Sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, etc) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. "I received the letter by post. It said the BJP and the RSS are communal organisations and they are working against the Muslims. So, being a Muslim, I should not be in that party," he added.

He said the letter told him to quit the party within 15 days. Laskar, however, doubted the authenticity of the demand, saying it might be a handiwork of syndicate mafias involved in urea, drugs and land "against which I have been fighting". The MLA said he will continue his fight against anti-social elements and demanded a thorough probe by the police.
