Firebrand Muslim leader Asaduddin Owaisi, president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), has received threat from the Islamic State.
The Hyderabad MP said that he has been warned by the ISIS terror group on Twitter to keep his mouth shut.
“Its better for you to shut your mouth on Islamic State if you don’t know the truth, IslamicState will invade india soon (sic),” a Twitter handle in the name of @abotalout warned Owaisi.
A second tweet read: “Your Disgrace for Muslims of India. Opposing islamicstate will lead you to hell only repent before end (sic).”
The tweets are suspected to have originated from an ISIS managed account.
Owaisi, meanwhile, responded to the tweets:
@abotalout sir you are a bloody Takfiri if you want to debate on Evil ISIS I am ready you will not be able to counter my Theological Points

The AIMIM chief has in the recent past spoken against the ISIS and this is what is believed to have led to the threatening tweets.
