"Muzaffarnagar riots show failure of district administration. People will give reply to the government in the upcoming polls," the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) vice-president Maulana Kalbe Sadiq said.

He also called Narendra Modi "harmful" for secularism and said people should unitedly fight against communal forces.

Maulana claimed that the death of a cleric few days ago was actually a murder and police was trying to cover it up by saying it was a suicide.

Mufti Munewar was found hanging on November 24 from a tree at Bhabisa village here.
