A complaint has been registered with the Union Home secretary against an individual named Asi Chullikara for allegedly assaulting a Hindu resident in Kuwait after he had praised Prime Minister Modi on his social media account.
According to the complaint filed by advocate Pratheesh Vishwanath, Asi Chullikara, hailing from Kasargod district of Kerala and currently residing in Kuwait, along with his friends had barged into the residence of Praveen on April 28 and brutally assaulted him after Praveen had made pro-Modi comments on social media.
The video of a mob attacking Praveen had gone viral across social media platforms. In the video, it was clearly seen how a mob allegedly led by Asi Chullikara had thrashed Praveen over his Facebook posts.

In his complaint, Pratheesh Vishwanath has stated that the mob led by Asi Chullikara threatened and forced Praveen to apologise to the Muslim community at large and made him confess that the post he had put in his Facebook account was against the Muslim community.
Assault was recorded on camera
Shockingly, the entire assault was recorded by the mob and was published across social media platforms with a warning that whosoever engages in such activities against Muslims will be taught a lesson.
“A section of persons who are working in Gulf countries especially one who are from Kerala are spreading hatred towards the country as well as Hindus are targeting Hindu expatriates in Gulf pointing any FB post posted by them in support of the present government ruling the nation and its leaders labelling them as anti-Muslim,” the complaint read.

He requested the Home Ministry to give prior sanction under Section 188 of the CrPC to prosecute the accused in India for the offences they have committed in Kuwait.
Asi Chullikara’s anti-India propaganda
