Branding Muslims as ‘jihadists’, Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Goshamahal MLA Raja Singh on Tuesday, November 14, once again delivered a hate speech targeting the minority community. Addressing a group of people in Hyderabad’s Goshamahal, he also labelled the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) party as “traitors who should be expelled from the country.” This is not the first time the Hindutva mascot has made hate speech, nor is this the first time that he has targeted the AIMIM. Raja Singh was given the Goshamahal ticket after months of suspense, as he had been suspended from the BJP. The move from BJP came after he released a video in which he made derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad, which almost led to riots.
At the meeting, Raja Singh claimed that there had been an increase in the minority vote bank and also alleged a rise in bogus votes in the Goshamahal constituency. “Hindu voters must unite and demonstrate strength at the polls to the minorities who slaughter beef, engage in love jihad and promote religious conversion. This is a battle of dharm (religion). We must work to make dharm win… I have been with you for protection from these jihadists for the past ten years,” he said.
