Nellai Kannan calls to kill Amit Shah

Congress supporter and Tamil scholar Nellai Kannan has called for the murder of Home Minister Amit Shah. In a meeting organised by the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Nellai Kannan said that Home Minister Amit Shah is acting as the brain behind PM Modi and that if his story was 'finished', that of the PM would also be over too.

If his story is finished, then the story of the PM would also be over. I was expecting something to happen, but no Muslim is doing it, Kannan said during the gathering.

BJP leaders have filed a complaint against Kannan claiming that the speech was inciting hatred and urged the police to file a case against abetment to murder. Several organisations and individuals have slammed Kannan and called for a ban against SDPI.
