Another BJP leader makes derogatory remarks against Holy Prophet (PBUH)

Hyderabad, August 23 (KMS): Another Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Member of Legislative Assembly in the Indian state of Telangana, T Raja Singh, has insulted the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him), by making derogatory remarks against him.

Earlier, two BJP leaders, Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal, had made similar comments triggering global outcry as many gulf counties criticized Sharma’s comments and her party ideology.

Police in Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana, arrested T Raja Singh for his blasphemous remarks against the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Singh’s arrest came after several Muslim organisations staged protests across various police stations in the city on Monday late night demanding his arrest saying that he insulted the Prophet (PBUH) and hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims.

On Monday, the BJP MLA released a video making blasphemous remarks against the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The video in question was released around 10 pm on Monday, resulting in protests across various police stations to condemn the remarks of the two-time BJP MLA. A first information report (FIR) was filed against Singh under various sections of Indian Penal Code.

“We have received several complaints. MLA Raja Singh has been apprehended. We will update you about the arrest as well as the sections soon,” Indian Express quoted Joel Davis, DCP (Hyderabad West Zone Police) as saying.

Several people belonging to the Muslim community staged protests in various parts of the city on Monday night demanding Singh’s arrest. Many All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) legislators and corporators of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation reached the police stations, where protests were held and sought stringent action against Raja Singh.

Meanwhile, fearing massive backlash from the Muslim World, BJP has suspended T Raja Singh hours after he was arrested for making derogatory remarks against the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
