Despite his apology, Masood failed to escape from legal trouble. Earlier Election Commission of India sent a showcause notice asking him to clarify his stand.
'I admit I have made a mistake, such things should not be said during elections'
Facing criticism from all including Congress leaders, Masood apologised and said, "I admit I have made a mistake, such things should not be said during elections."
In his controversial speech, Masood said, "I am a man of the street, ready to give my life for my people. I am neither afraid of death or of killing. He thinks this is Gujarat. There are only 4% Muslims in Gujarat. There are 42% Muslims here."
In the video, which went viral, Masood threatened Modi to cut into pieces. Slamming Masood for using such sane language, Congress leader Raj Babbar said, "Using such words to instigate people is not right."
