Row over remarks against Prophet: Additional forces deployed in Hyderabad


Additional police forces have been deployed in parts of the city following overnight protests against suspended BJP legislator Raja Singh’s alleged remarks against Prophet Mohammed, that stretched into Wednesday morning.

Singh was arrested by the city police on Tuesday for making remarks against Islam and Prophet Mohammed in a video, which was later pulled down by the social media platform on which it was uploaded. Later, he was granted bail by a local court.

Following his release protests erupted with people taking to streets on late Tuesday night in various parts of the city including Charminar area, prompting the police to beef up security.

Additional forces have been deployed wherever it is necessary. Some protests were held last night. But the situation is peaceful now, G Biksham Reddy Assistant Commissioner of Police, Charminar told PTI on Wednesday.

MLAs belonging to AIMIM reached several parts of the old city where large number of Muslim youth were protesting holding black flags and tried to reason with them, the party sources said.

Following an uproar over his remarks, the BJP suspended Singh from the party.
