Senior IUML leader, MLA, and former minister in the Kerala government, MK Muneer, received death threats over a Facebook post in which he had criticised the Taliban for unleashing brutality on the Afghan people. Muneer received the threat letter on Wednesday (August 25).
The letter warned that if Muneer did not delete the Anti-Taliban post, he and his family would be eliminated. The letter also warned that Muneer would meet the fate of Professor TJ Joseph in Thodupuzha, whose hands were chopped off in 2010 on allegations of blasphemy.
Muneer was getting multiple threats online after he published the post on Facebook last week. The commentators on his post asked him not to defame the Taliban and Islam. The Taliban took control of Kabul on August 15 and have unleashed a fresh torrent of terror. In a suicide blast at Kabul airport, more than 60 people were killed, including 14 American soldiers.
