The PDP, however, isn't very happy with the decision. According to Manorama Online, the PDP has called for a hartal in Kerala to be held on Wednesday in protest of this court order.

Madani had submitted the bail plea in order to attend the wedding of his son Umar Mukhthar to be held at Thalassery on 9 August.

According to Matrubhumi, the hartal was announced by PDP state working chairman Poonthura Siraj in a press conference on Monday.

Manorama Online stated that the court has allowed the leader to stay in Kerala from 1 to 7 August. The PDP chairman had sought permission to be in Kerala from 1 to 20 August to also meet his mother who is sick.

A political leader from Kerala, Madani is allegedly linked to several terror activities in India. According to a 2010 report of Hindustan Times, Madani was first arrested on April 8 2000, in connection with the 1998 Coimbatore bombings which had killed 60 people. Madani was imprisoned for eight years, but was released on August 1, 2007 after being acquitted of all charges, the report said.

Madani formed PDP in 1992 after the demolition of Babri Masjid in order to bring Muslim Dalits in the state together.

In June 2009, Madani was charge-sheeted in the 2008 Bangalore blast case, and arrested a year later by the Karnataka police. According to The Times of India, he is suspected to have played a crucial role in explosions in Surat, Mumbai and Delhi. According to Hindustan Times, he is also suspected to have links with banned terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba.
