Jammu: T Raja Singh, a Hindutva leader and former BJP MLA from Telangana, has once again targeted Muslim women by giving a hateful speech against Muslims.
Addressing a gathering in Telangana’s Adilabad district on June 6, Raja Singh urged Hindu women not to befriend Muslim women. He said that “Whoever has tilak on his forehead is my brother and a Hindu. I will only be friends with those who wear tilak and not befriend our women in a burqa.”
Raja Singh is notorious for his hate speeches and has been suspended from the BJP. His hate speech is a clear violation of the orders of the Telangana High Court which granted him conditional bail in the case of making an insulting statement against the Prophet of Islam. The court prohibited him from making inflammatory speeches against any religion and directed him to stay away from derogatory social media posts.
Raja Singh’s hate speech has been condemned by many people, including Muslim leaders and activists. They have called for his arrest and prosecution.
The hate speech by Raja Singh is a reminder of the growing Islamophobia in India. It is also a reminder of the dangers of communalism and the need to promote communal harmony.
