A day after the Modi tsunami swept the country, 18 members of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), including its Madhya Pradesh chief Abu Faisal, shouted pro-Taliban slogans and included Narendra Modi’s name in their hit list after they were produced in a court in Bhopal.
Time of India (h/t Bhagat N) Faisal and 17 other SIMI members were brought to the court of chief judicial magistrate Pankaj Singh Maheswari on Saturday for a hearing in terror-related cases and the Khandwa jailbreak. While being escorted out of the court under heavy security, the SIMI men turned belligerent and began screaming: “Taliban zindabad. Ab Modi ki baari hai (Now, it’s Modi’s turn).
A case was registered against them for making provocative statements. “They have been booked under Section 153 (B) and 294 A of the IPC for making assertions prejudicial to national integration,” said police officer Brajesh Bhargava.
