"Will behead those opposing Ram temple," BJP MLA's hate rant
A BJP MLA from Hyderabad has landed himself in a controversy after issuing mindless threats to 'those opposed to the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya'. A video purportedly showing MLA T Raja Singh speaking during Ram Navami celebrations is said to have been shot on April 5 but is now going viral. The MLA is heard saying that "the heads of traitors opposing Ram temple will be chopped off." His remarks have now led to a case against the legislator for attempting to outrage religious feelings.
Based on a complaint by Amjed Ullah Khan, the spokesman for Majlis Bachao Tehreek, the Hyderabad Police on Sunday registered a case against the BJP MLA from Goshamahal constituency. The MLA has been booked by Dabeerpura police under IPC section 295A for deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs.
The complaint against the MLA said that when the title dispute is pending in the Supreme Court, such statements by Raja Singh was a violation of the Supreme Court and demanded that action be taken against the MLA.
]"The day is not far..the dream of every Hindu of building a Ram temple in Ayodhya. Recently, a video came on WhatsApp from Uttar Pradesh and someone was heard saying if Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya they will create 'tehelka' in the entire country. We welcome this. In fact, we were waiting for this day for the past several years so that when you traitors raise your heads, we will behead you," the MLA is seen saying in the video.
Singh remained unfazed about the complaint and said that he was willing to sacrifice his life for the cause of Ram Temple.
"We will not allow the people who believe in destroying this nation to stay in this country. It is our pledge to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya and we will abide by it. We can give our life for Ram temple and even take the life of traitors who oppose Ram temple in Ayodhya," he told the media.
