Kanpur, July 1 Mohammad Kausar Hasan Majidi, the President of Kanpur-based Sufi Khanqah Association, in Uttar Pradesh has reportedly received a phone call threatening of dire consequences for condemning the Udaipur incident and launching a tirade against Sunni Islamic organisation ‘Dawat-e-Islami’, police said.

Majidi had lodged a complaint at Juhi police station, seeking a probe into the activities of Dawat-e-Islami in Kanpur.

He had also condemned the Udaipur incident in a TV debate after which he was threatened with dire consequences by an unidentified caller on his mobile phone.

The police said they are looking into Majidi’s complaint in connection with the matter.

Majidi had earlier made a complaint to the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s office in 2021 regarding a probe into the operations of Dawat-e-Islami in Kanpur.

Joint Commissioner of Police, Anand Prakash Tiwari, said, “The police is looking into his (Majidi’s) complaint and action will be taken as per the evidence.”
