Derogatory remarks against Holy Prophet (PBUH): Telangana BJP MLA Raja Singh granted bail hours after arrest

Hyderabad, Aug 24 (KMS):  A Hyderabad city court in the Indian state of Telengana granted bail to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Raja Singh who was arrested for making derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Raja Singh, who was arrested on Tuesday, was ordered to be released on bail barely a couple of hours after he was remanded to judicial custody.

The 14th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate directed the BJP leader to cooperate with the police in the investigation into the case.

Raja Singh was produced at the Nampally Criminal Court amid tight security and high tension due to protests by his supporters and those opposed to him.

Raja Singh, who allegedly repeated the derogatory remarks made against the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by now suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, denied that he insulted sentiments of any community.

Meanwhile, taking serious note of Raja Singh’s action, the BJP suspended him and served him a show cause notice seeking explanation as to why he should not be expelled from the party.

Meanwhile, traders in various parts of the old city and in Nampally, Mallepally and other areas downed shutters demanding action against the MLA.

The inauguration of a new flyover in Chandrayangutta was also postponed.

Raja Singh who was granted bail by the Nampally High Court for his derogatory remarks on Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was seen in a mood of jubilation, it is reported.

Images have emerged online of his team of lawyers congratulating him with a bouquet.
