Bantwal, July 8,2017 : Consequent upon the huge protest staged by Hindu outfits at B.C. Road on July 7, Friday despite the prohibitory orders under Section 144, senior RSS leader was issued a death threat through a Facebook Page called Mangalore Muslims.
The post which read "Kalladka Bhat is a terrorist. If he dies will his body be draped in the national flag or saffron flag. Decide, as it is the last day in the life of Prabhaker Bhat." Just as the post drew sharp reactions it was deleted.
Later when news trickled in that RSS worker Sharath who was stabbed at B C Road recently, has succumbed, there emerged another post in the same page saying "Another wicket fell in AJ Hospital. When will it happen in Kalladka?’’ Even this post was subsequently deleted.
It has been gathered that no police complaint has been lodged. Reacting to the threat, Kalladka Prabhaker Bhat said it was God who decides as to how long a person would live. He also stated that he has received threats in the past too and will never get bogged down by such threats.
