BJP MLA T Raja Singh of Hyderabad threatened to stop Munawar Faruqui’s upcoming show in the city as he again attacked the stand-up comedian and Lock Upp winner. According to his video message, the politician threatened to set the venue ablaze and beat up the comedian if he performed in the city.
BJP MLA T Raja Singh, from Hyderabad’s Goshamahal constituency, said in a video message the comedian made jokes about Hindu gods that shouldn’t be allowed.
I’ll let them see what happens if he’s invited to perform in Hyderabad. We will beat him up wherever the program is held. The venue he offers will be set on fire by us, he warned.
If he comes to Telangana, we will definitely teach him a lesson for abusing our Lord Ram. This is a challenge for me, he said.
In response to the threats, several social media users, including those from the city, took to Twitter to support him. Several people tagged Telangana’s Information Technology Minister K T Rama Rao and asked him to take action against Raja Singh’s threats.
There is a video going viral in which BJP MLA Raja Singh openly threatens @munawar0018 and says organisers will face serious consequences. You promised that the #MunawarFaruqui show in Hyderabad would not be canceled. This matter needs to be addressed urgently, the user pleaded, posting a video in which the minister openly invites comedians to perform.
We cordially invite our brother Munawwar Farooqi to give a performance in Hyderabad. We ensure you we have good Law & order forces, with love and regards from the city of peace, love, and diversity #Hyderabad, another user said in a video message to the comedian.
Moreover, if KTR attends Munawar’s show, people should not be surprised if such incidents do not occur in the city.
On Wednesday, Faruqui announced that his show – Dongri to Nowhere – will take place in Hyderabad on August 20. Adding a fire emoji to the post, he wrote, “Hyderabad, link in bio. Tickets will be sold online for Rs.499.
