BJP MLA T. Raja Singh has filed a complaint with the Central Crime Station (CCS) police station over alleged defamatory comments about him on Facebook.
The Goshamhal legislator in his complaint named Mohammed Aslam Khan, reportedly a social activist and The Milli Gazette, an English fortnightly paper, for a particular post that claimed that Raja Singh's niece converted to Islam.
Raja Singh wrote in his complaint that the message was posted "without verifying the facts and thus causing damage to me and my family reputation."
The post said: "Raja Singh Ki Bhanji Musalman Ladke Kay Saath Imaan Laakar Musalman Bangayi Aur Shadi Bhi Karli Kate. Raja Singh Ko Jawab Milgaya Khudrat Ki Taraf Say."
(Translation: Raja Singh's niece has converted to Islam and also married a Muslim boy it seems. Raja Singh has got his answer from God)
The BJP MLA also added that the post hurt the "sentiments of Hindus" while alleging that both the accounts posted a lot of wrong information on social media that further hurt religious sentiments.
The MLA has demanded for strict action to be taken against the two Facebook accounts. Raja Singh himself, is known for his controversial statements and has three hate speech cases booked against him.
