Togadia, Modi get death threat

February 01, 2006 00:16 IST

International general secretary of the Vishwa Hindu ParishadPravin Togadia and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi received a combined death threat Tuesday, VHP sources said in Ahmedabad.

The death threat claiming to be from the "Christian community" was sent in a closed envelope that was sent by post to the VHP office, the sources said.

"The letter has warned both Togadiyaji and Modiji of dire consequences if they do not stop their anti-Christian activities. We have intimated the police and the state Home Department regarding this threat letter," a VHP local office bearer Abhay Singh told PTI.

The letter, handwritten in Gujarati, also threatens that the members of the "Christian community" would self immolate if Togadia and Modi did not change their stand against the minority community in Gujarat.

The threat letter also mentions that it was a "last warning" being given to the two leaders.

Incidentally Togadia just received a death threat via post three days ago and it had claimed to be sent from Osama bin Laden.

Modi also received a "threat" and "abusive" email in December and police did arrest a Delhi-based man Omar Siddiqui in this connection but he was pardoned by the chief minister on Monday on compassionate grounds.
