Burnt, Not Burial: Wasim Rizvi, he says when he dies he must be burnt according to Hindu rituals.

‘Muslims Want to Kill Me’
Waseem Rizvi released a video in which he alleged that Muslim groups were plotting to kill him and behead him. In a video message, he said, “My only fault is that I challenged 26 verses of the Quran in the Supreme Court. The Muslims want to kill me and declare that they will not give me a place in any of the graves.”
Wasim Rizvi also made headlines for requesting the removal of certain verses from the Quran. He had applied to the Supreme Court citing 26 verses in the Quran that ‘promote terrorism’. However, rejecting the application, the Supreme Court imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on Rizvi.
The entire India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) has lodged a complaint with Hyderabad police, demanding action against former Shia Wakf board chairman Uttar Pradesh Wasim Rizvi for defamation.
