Haridwar (Uttarakhand), Oct 20 (IANS) Firebrand Hindu leader Sadhvi Prachi, after the murder of Hindu leader Kamlesh Tiwari in Lucknow, has said that she also faces a threat to her life.

She said that Tiwari’s killing was the doing of Jihadis (Islamic militants).

The Sadhvi, while talking to reporters in Haridwar on Sunday, has asked the union Home Minister and the governments of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh to provide her security.

“I have received threats from the ISIS on several occasions. I believe firmly in God and have not discussed this till now. But the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari has upset me. A few days ago, some unknown persons came to my ashram and made inquiries about me. I feel that I need security,” she said.

Sadhvi Prachi alleged that jihadis were being given protection in India by the Congress and this should be thoroughly probed.

“The Yogi government should also probe why Kamlesh Tiwari’s security was withdrawn and action should be taken against officials responsible for this,” she said.

It may be recalled that former Hindu Mahasabha leader and president of the Hindu Samaj Party, Kamlesh Tiwari, was shot dead in his office in Lucknow on Friday by two men who came wearing saffron robes.

The UP police on Sunday identified the two assailants and the ATS teams have arrested about half a dozen persons from UP, Gujarat and Maharashtra in this connection.
