According to Indian media reports, Singh was purportedly heard insulting Islam and Muslims in a video that went viral on social media.

Raja Singh reacted defiantly to the FIR filed against him on Tuesday morning, claiming it was a comedy video directed at stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui and not against any one faith or group of people.

A number of Muslim organizations have protested in front of several police stations in the city, calling for the arrest of the two-time MLA who claims he released the video in response to Munawar Faruqui’s show that took place in Hyderabad on Sunday.

In the more than ten-minute video posted on Shree Ram Channel Telangana late Monday, Raja Singh can be heard discussing stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui and his comedy acts.
