Bengaluru, Dec 12: Even as the Indian agencies are trying to track down Mehdi Masroor Biswas the man said to have tweeted as shamiwitness, Channel 4 which broke the story has managed to speak to him once again.
Mehdi appears to be scared that he may be killed by the police who may then claim that he had tried to attack them. He says that he will not resist arrest when the time comes and does not have any weapons with him. "I get to read in the media now that there is a manhunt for me and they may get me in 24 hours", he says.
Have not waged any war:
Mehdi further states that he has done no wrong
"I haven't done anything wrong. I haven't harmed anybody, I haven't broken any laws of the country. I haven't raised any war or any violence against the public of India. I haven't waged war against any allies of India. They might try to bring that charge. I haven't waged war against anybody. I just said stuff, people followed me, then I followed them back and then we talked. I only knew what the IS fighters or sympathisers said in public tweets".
Thought it would die down:
"I thought it would die down in the first one or two hours but it's still raging. I can't believe this I think for the first time there's a Muslim who can actually enunciate in English and get the message across and which has really pissed off our enemies, enemies of Muslims", he also tells Channel 4s Simon Isreal.
