AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has allegedly received threats, from the same social media accounts that reportedly issued death threats to Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bhukari, who was shot and killed last week.

Syed Abdul Kashaf, the social media head of AIMIM and a close aide of Owaisi, said that he had taken the issue to the notice of the cyber crime cell and Twitter India.

Twitter India later suspended two of the accounts that were highlighted.

Owaisi has been facing flak ever since his decision to criticise a United Nations report on Kashmir and back the Centre's stand.

Many accused him of 'betrayal' and accused him of lying about the ground reality in their state.

Langate MLA Engineer Rashid from J&K, in a statement, said, "Whatsoever Assaduddin Owaisi has spoken viz-a-viz Kashmir dispute and UNHRC report on Kashmir is far away from reality, misleading and distortion of facts. Owaisi has every right to praise India and must be loyal to his country but saying that the Muslims of India stand with rest of the country on Kashmir issue is laughable and has no logic."

"Owaisi calling the report a propaganda and rejecting the solid evidences given by UNHRC exposing grave human rights violations and massacres of Kashmiris has proved that the political class of rest of India is adamant to mislead the world and ensure that Kashmiris are made to surrender. By criticizing UNHRC and adding salt to the injuries of Kashmiris, Owaisi and like-minded leaders can never win sympathy of the majority community in India as it is not Kashmiris but the Indian society which is getting radicalized day by day," he added.

Earlier this week, rejecting the United Nations report on alleged human rights violations in the Kashmir Valley, Owaisi said that the world body has no right to interfere in the internal matters of India, but also dubbed the report as "diplomatic failure" of the Centre.

The AIMIM chief said that his party fully supported the government of India on the issue since it dealt with the country's sovereignty.

"I will oppose Modi till my last breath, but when it comes to the country we support the government, irrespective of the party in power," he said.

The MP also condemned the killing of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari in Kashmir. He said those who killed the journalist and his security officers were the biggest agents of Satan.
