Provocative songs targeted Muslims in Hyderabad

During the Shri Ram Navami procession in Telangana’s capital Hyderabad, songs with provocative phrases targeting Muslims were sung by none other than Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator T Raja Singhthe (BJP MLA from Hyderabad’s Goshamahal) April 10, He was singing songs set to the tune of Hindi movie numbers, in which he indirectly warned minorities “to leave the country”. He sang, “Jo ram ka naam na le unko Bharat se bhagana hai,” [those who don’t take the name of Lord Ram will have to be chased out of India]. He also said that after Ayodhya, now in Mathura and Kashi, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath (Ajay Singh Bisht) will make India a “Hindu Rashtra” very soon. “Around 11 pm MLA Raja Singh addressed a huge public gathering at Hanuman Vyamashala ground by disturbing public peace and tranquillity in the locality, and the meeting concluded around 11.30 pm,” the police said. The Telangana Police on Tuesday booked Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Raja Singh for allegedly making a speech and singing provocative songs. Singh has been booked under Sections 153A (promoting enmity among people on grounds of religion), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), and among other provisions of the Indian Penal Code,
