Former MLA and Congress leader from Mangaluru, Mohiuddin Bava, on Wednesday claimed that he had received a threatening phone call after he visited the Gurupura Ambika Annapoorneshwari temple.
Bava alleged that he received a call from one Anil from Mumbai who threatened him for visiting a Hindu temple, saying, “It’s not the Nehru period; it is the Modi period. A beef-eater and Muslim should not visit the temple and make the temple unholy.”
The Congress leader filed a complaint with the Surathkal Police Station.
Bava had visited the temple on Sunday after he was invited by the temple priest for the “Kopparige” Pooja.
