The Hyderabad Police have served another notice to Telangana MLA and suspended BJP leader T Raja Singh for making a hate speech at a rally in Mumbai on January 29.
The notice was issued by Mangalhat police to the controversial legislator for making communally provocative comments, in violation of the conditions imposed by the High Court when it ordered his release last year.
The Telangana Legislative Assembly Member from the Goshamahal constituency has been given two days to respond to the notice.
Reacting strongly to the new notice, Raja Singh claimed that the state is being ruled by the ninth Nizam. He stated that he was not afraid of being imprisoned again.
The MLAs demanded that laws be made to check cow slaughter, religious conversions, and Love of Jihad.
This is the second notice he has received from Mangalhat police in a week. On January 26, he was served with a notice for allegedly offensive remarks he made last year about a religious community.
The notice under section 41 (a) of CrPC was issued in connection with the alleged provocative speech. He was booked in August 2022 under Section 295 A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of the Indian Penal Code by Kanchanbagh police based on a complaint. Later, the case was transferred to Mangalhat police station.
Raja Singh was served with a showcase notice in December last year for allegedly violating High Court conditions by making derogatory comments on Facebook.
According to the notice, the Preventive Detention (PD) Act was invoked against Raja Singh for habitually delivering provocative and inflammatory speeches. While setting aside the police order invoking PD Act, the High Court imposed certain conditions.
The condition imposed by the High Court was that the MLA not make provocative speeches against any religion or post derogatory or offensive posts on any social media platform such as Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Youtube, etc.
On August 25, Raja Singh was sent to jail after the Hyderabad Police commissioner invoked the PD Act. He had been imprisoned for 76 days.
The police took the action in response to ongoing calls for his re-arrest for making derogatory remarks about Prophet Mohammad.
According to police, Raja Singh, a rowdy sheeter of Mangalhat police station, has been delivering provocative and inflammatory speeches on a regular basis, causing public disorder.
Since 2004, a total of 101 criminal cases have been registered against him. He was involved in 18 communal offences in the limits of different police stations in Hyderabad.
The MLA, who had been suspended by the BJP for making derogatory comments, had challenged the police action. The Telangana High Court set aside the police order invoking PD Act against the MLA and ordered his release.
However, the court imposed certain conditions. The MLA was told not to make provocative speeches against any religion or to post derogatory or offensive content on social media platforms.
