But the claim was disputed by Swami Chakrapani, the national president of the Hindu Mahasabha. He later founded the Hindu Samaj Party in 2017. He also contested from Faizabad in 2019 Indian general election but lost.
Kamlesh Tiwari Comment on Prophet Muhammad
On 2 December 2015, Azam Khan, a politician of the Samajwadi Party, stated that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh members are homosexuals and that is why they do not get married. The next day, Kamlesh Tiwari retaliated to Azam Khan’s statement and called Muhammad as the first homosexual in the world. Thousands of Muslims protested in Muzaffarnagar and demanded death penalty for Tiwari, with some demanding that he be “beheaded” for “insulting” Muhammad. Tiwari was arrested in Lucknow on 3 December 2015 by Uttar Pradesh Police. Protest rallies against his statement were held by several Islamic groups in other parts of India, most of them demanding death penalty.
Tiwari was promptly arrested for his remarks in early December 2015, and charged under National Security Act by the Samajwadi Party-led state government in Uttar Pradesh. Tiwari spent several months in jail for his comment. He was charged under Indian Penal Code sections 153-A (promoting enmity between groups on the grounds of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) and 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs).
The protests demanding capital punishment for Tiwari triggered counter-protests by Hindu groups who accused Muslim groups of demanding enforcement of Islamic law of blasphemy in India. His detention under National Security Act was revoked by Allahabad High Court in 2016.
