KANNUR: Muslim Youth League (MYL) has expelled its activist Abdul Salam, of Kanhangad, from the organisation in connection with the controversial sloganeering in the Manipur solidarity rally held in Kanhangad on Tuesday.

The programme was held in connection with the statewide agitation programme of MYL. In a statement issued on Wednesday, MYL general secretary P K Firos said that Salam has been dismissed from the organisation for his act of impropriety which has dented its image before the public. “He has done an unpardonable act,” said Firos. 

“The hate slogans raised in the rally were not in the list of slogans given to the workers in print. And it was against the ideology of the Muslim League as it was intended to spread hate among the people,” he said. 
Meanwhile, Hosdurg police have registered a case against Youth League workers in connection with the rally.

The case was registered based on the complaint lodged by BJP Kanhangad Mandalam president P Prashanth for trying to disrupt communal harmony and unlawful gathering. The case is being registered against around 300 MYL workers. The hate slogans raised in the rally had become viral on Tuesday itself and were shared widely on social media.
