Form Vigilante Group To Keep Check On Anti-Nationals, Hyderabad BJP MLA Raja Singh Appeals Hindu Youths
Hyderabad BJP MLA Raja Singh declared that he will a form vigilante army to deal with ‘anti-national’ and ‘traitors of the nation’. The controversial legislator released two videos on September 18th, Wednesday and claimed that he is holding a conference to create with the vigilante group that can keep a check on the anti-nationals.
Raja Singh in the video said that six months back, he had planned a camp, decided on a date, and invited Hinduvadi brave-hearts and patriots to attend it.
“The camp is created to make sure that we Hindus should grow up to be the soldiers, just like the Indian National Army. The idea is to train the youngsters so that they will come to the forefront of the battle. The Army is handling terrorists at the border. Should there not be an army to handle terrorists residing within the country?” the MLA asked.
The legislator went ahead and threatened that the army will be created in every corner of India. “In the coming days, whichever traitor is hidden inside India, will be dragged out and worn down, and sent outside India – or even directly to Jahannum (hell),” he said.
However, this is not the first time Raja Singh sparked controversy. The BJP leader had made buzz for his controversial statements in the past as well. The MLA has 43 cases pending against him. But Raja Singh continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Here is the timeline tracing some of the most controversial statements passed by the firebrand BJP MLA –
In February 2018, the minister questioned the Hindus for not going to the RSS shakhas. “Those who do not go to RSS shakhas should stop calling themselves Hindus. I don’t think he can do anything for the country or his religion,” the MLA said.
In July 2018, the minister came in the spotlight for saying that the cow lynching incidents will continue to happen unless cow gets the status of ‘rashtra mata‘ and a law is enforced against the cow slaughter.
When his due attention was not given to him, he decided to take a break from politics in August 2018 and resigned from the party to focus on the gau raksha. “For me Hindu dharma and cow protection are priorities, and politics comes later. For ‘gau raksha’, I have resigned from the BJP. I brought up the issue in the Assembly many times, but the party did not provide any support,” he said.
In August 2018, The leader’s hatred towards the refugees did not go unnoticed as he came forward threatening them to either leave the country or face consequences.
“If these people, illegal Bangladeshis and Rohingya, don’t go back with ‘sharafat‘ (like gentlemen) then there is a need to make them understand in their own language. They should be shot. Only then India will be safe,” he said in a video message on a social networking site.
In December 2018, while campaigning for his party, the lone Telangana representative of the BJP in the assembly said that if he came to power he would rename Hyderabad as Bhagyanagar, the name proposed and endorsed by CM Yogi Adityanath.
The leader’s hatred for Owaisi brother knows no bounds as he never misses a chance to take a jibe on the Owaisi’s led party Majlis-E-Ittehadul MuslImeen (AIMIM). In June 2019, he said, “Asaduddin Owaisi is supporting terrorists financially and today in his constituency more than 7000 Muslims from different nations are living.”
The controversial story of Raja Singh took a bizarre turn this June when he took the law in his hands. He was trying to replace the 20-foot statue of freedom fighter Rani Avanti Bai at Jummerat Bazar area with a new one. The act was carried out at 2 am in the night along with his 200 followers.
The MLA after being under Police custody accused the Police of manhandling and charging lathis (sticks) on him. The Police then released video footage where he hit his head with a boulder to get the injuries and later blamed it on the Police.
