BJP MLA Raja Singh is not famous for his works but for controversies.

Raja Singh had tried his best to stop standup comedian Munnavar Farooqui’s show in Hyderabad, but Raja Singh is looking more furious since the show was successful amidst tight security of Telangana Police. Along with Munnawar Farooqui, a controversial video has been released against the entire Muslim community, in which he has also given filthy filthy abuses. After his controversial video went viral, a ruckus has started in the entire Hyderabad city.

People of Muslim community are protesting against Raja Singh by taking to the road. Complaints were filed in several police stations. A case was registered against Raja Singh and his arrest was demanded. People sat on dharna outside the office of the city police commissioner. People say that when no action was taken against BJP leaders Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal after making controversial statements on Pangbar, Raja Singh also feels that no action will be taken against them. The dispute has increased so much that any time there can be disturbance in the city and it seems that Raja Singh also wants the same.

Raja Singh said on Saturday that necessary action would be taken against the police who took repressive measures against the party workers. Posting a video of Munawar on 19 August, he wrote that when I protested against the use of such language against Hindus, the Razakar government of Telangana arrested me. Raja Singh had threatened to cancel Munawar Farooqui’s show. Munnavar’s show was held in Hyderabad on 20th August.
