BJP revokes suspension of Telangana MLA who made remarks against Prophet

This resolution was reached following Singh's response to the show cause notice issued by the party previously.

The Telangana BJP chief, G Kishan Reddy, announced on Sunday that the suspension of Goshamahal MLA T Raja Singh has been lifted by the BJP leadership.

This decision came after Singh provided an explanation in response to the show cause notice issued by the party earlier.

In August last year, Raja Singh was suspended from the party following his alleged controversial remarks against "Islam and Prophet Mohammed" in a video which was later pulled down by the social media platform on which it was uploaded.

He was arrested under the Preventive Detention Act. However, the Telangana High Court in November 2022 had set aside the PD Act invoked against him. Later, he was granted bail.

"The Central disciplinary committee of the BJP has decided to revoke the suspension of Shri T Raja Singh MLA Goshamahal from the BJP after due consideration of his explanation in response to the show cause notice served by the party. This is for the information of all the concerned," the statement from Kishan Reddy said.

Addressing the press, Singh expressed his confidence in the BJP lifting his suspension, allowing him to participate in the elections for the Goshamahal constituency. He firmly stated that he had no intention of aligning with either the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) or the Congress party.

Raja Singh, is known for his strong views in support of Hindutva.

He faces several police cases in Hyderabad, including those related to alleged communal offences.
