  • We need not be surprised if the public teaches such leaders a lesson for politicising in the name of religion due to vested interests.

Lucknow (UP) – Shalabh Mani Tripathi posted the video on his Twitter in which former MLA of Congress Imran Masood joined the Samajwadi Party saying, ‘All Muslims should unite, everyone will hold feet’. Masood had said further to the Muslims, ‘Because of you people, I have to touch the feet of others. You guys have made me dog.’ He made this statement because he felt offended by the SP.

After having joined the SP, Masood has accused the President of SP, Akhilesh Yadav of insulting him. He said that Akhilesh Yadav invited him twice but did not meet him personally. He also declared the candidate of the Party in Saharanpur (Masood is the former MLA in Saharanpur). He said that he had taken the opinion from his supporters before joining the SP.
