Bhopal, Nov 6 (PTI) A man was arrested on Friday for

allegedly threatening the Madhya Pradesh Assembly''s pro-tem

Speaker Rameshwar Sharma for opposing a protest over the

cartoon row in France, the police said here.

Javed Akthar (28), resident of Khagra in Devghar

district in Jharkhand, was arrested from Sambalpur in Odisha

by a team of Crime Branch and Cyber Cell of the MP police.

"He had threatened on Facebook to kill the speaker. He

works at a steel factory in Sambalpur," said Additional

Director General of Police, Bhopal, Upendra Jain.

The Assembly secretariat had sought security for the

pro-tem speaker after he received threats on social media for

opposing a recent protest against France, an official said.

On Thursday, members of the Muslim community protested

at the Iqbal Maidan here against French President Emmanuel

Macron over the controversy about depiction of Prophet

Muhammad in cartoons.

The protest had been led by Congress MLA Arif Masood.

Rameshwar Sharma had said in a statement afterwards

that protesters created an atmosphere of fear by backing

fundamentalism and they should have held the protest in France

as the incident had nothing to do with the state. PTI MAS
