Musafar said his lawyers advised him to return home. He is a butcher by profession who also deals in second-hand cars. Musafar is also an active PFI member. PFI goons surrounded the area and chanted provocative slogans against the administration and the police. As the situation worsened, police moved Musafar to the Palluruthy police station, and he was handed over to the Alappuzha police, who are investigating the incident. By evening news trickled out that he had been arrested. PFI leader Yahya Thangal continued the verbal abuse and claimed that the Kerala High Court judges wear saffron underwear. Yesterday, he was speaking in front of an audience and received ample applause for his vulgar comments. Neither the administration, police, nor the bureaucracy complained. Similar abuses were used when the court proclaimed the Gyanvapi videography verdict.
