Goshamahal BJP legislator Raja Singh booked for hate speech

Hyderabad, Goshamahal BJP legislator Raja Singh's hate speech against those opposing Ram temple at Ayodhya has triggered strong reaction from the Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT).

"Indian Muslims are not wearing bangles. We will not tolerate your rantings with silence. We warn you Raja Singh," said MBT leader Amjedullah Khan.

Khan has approached the Dabeerpura police station to file a complaint against Raja Singh for his provocative statements during the Ramnavami procession. He has lodged a complaint with a copy of Raja Singh's speech on a CD. Based on the complaint, a case was lodged against Raja Singh under Section 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings) of IPC.

"We have registered the case after legal opinion. We will decide whether to transfer it to Shahinayathgunj police station," said Dabeerpura inspector D Venkanna Naik.

Khan has posted a video reaction to the speech: "Why has Hyderabad police not acted against Raja Singh yet? Why is Telangana government not taking action?" he asked.

"We also know how to give you a fitting reply," he said. "With the case of title deed still to be settled in the apex court, Raja Singh's statements are contempt of court," he said in the police complaint.

Amjedullah said Raja Singh had taunted Muslims by saying: "Tum hamara pair pakad lo, kahin na kahin tumhara Babar ki masjid bana denge. (Fall at our feet, we will help build your Babar's mosque somewhere)."

In the Ram Navami Shobha Yatra, Raja Singh had said: "Ram lalla, hum aayenge. Mandir wahin banayenge. (We are coming. The temple will be built there)."

The BJP MLA said that the 'mullah sarkar' has gone in Uttar Pradesh. "Ab tumhari baap ki sarkar hai (now it's our own government)," he told the crowd.

MIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owasi said, "I prefer to ignore Raja Singh's remark. Let them speak more. Then Hindus who voted for BJP will realise they have been taken for a ride".
