The Election Commission has also asked the authorities to initiate immediate criminal proceedings against both the leaders.
Making a personal attack on Shah for his comment, Khan had challenged Amit Shah by saying that he can’t take revenge for the Muzaffarnagar riots. “Amit Shah said he wants to take revenge on us. A man who couldn’t save the hair on his own head, how can he protect us,” Khan had said.
