IUML president rejects extremism charges
Malappuram: Rejecting charges that the party had links to extremist elements, IUML Kerala unit chief Panakkad Hyderali Shihab Thangal on Saturday the party had been in the forefront of the campaign against terrorism and extremism.
The campaign that extremist elements `are infiltrating into IUML is a conspiracy` hatched by the party`s rivals, he said at a conference of the party`s Malappuram District unit.
Thangal said the party had to "face criticism" for its strong stand against terrorism and extremism, but did not elaborate.
His comments come in the backdrop of the US diplomatic cables leaked by WikiLeaks causing embarassment to the IUML by suggesting divisions in the party over its approach towards extremist outfit National Development Front (NDF).
The whistleblower site revealed that a cable allegedly sent to Washington by the US consulate in Chennai a few years ago quoted IUML leader MK Muneer as having said that party leaders like PK Kunhalikutty "shielded" NDF activists to secure "selfish" interests.
