Thakur Raja Singh
Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) on Tuesday suspended its Telangana MLA T Raja Singh for his controversial remarks targeting Islam. The Hyderabad police arrested BJP MLA T Raja Singh Tuesday morning for his alleged derogatory remarks against the Prophet in a video posted on social media, amid protests against his comments across the city, said officials.
A case under sections 295(a), and 153 (a) has been registered against the leader, who is known for making divisive comments on social media. Singh represents Hyderabad’s Goshamahal assembly constituency in Hyderabad.
Raja Singh is purportedly attacking the Muslim community for the population explosion. He also attacked those who kill people for saying anything against their religion. He also used an allegedly crass analogy for the Prophet without naming him. Hundreds of people from the community have been protesting in the city.
This comes months after a former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma triggered global outrage for allegedly making an insulting remark against the Prophet during a television debate. She was suspended from the party and is facing a clutch of FIRs in court. Weeks after Nupur Sharma’s remarks, a tailor in Rajasthan was beheaded by two people as he had supported the BJP spokesperson.
