Congress Alleges Hyderabad Police Used ‘Brutal’ Force Against Protestors 

 - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: After videos of Hyderabad police storming the houses of protestors and miscreants and in the night going viral, Congress condemned the Telangana Police for its crackdown against those who participated in the protest demanding the arrest of BJP MLA Raja Singh for his alleged derogatory remarks against the Prophet Muhammad. 

Senior Congress leader Sameer Waliullah on Thursday said police personnel trespassed into the houses of Muslims in Shalibanda and other areas late at night and arrested every youth present in the house. They used abusive language against the entire community in full public view.

The videos recorded by the local media and individuals clearly show that innocent Muslim youth were brutally beaten and subjected to third-degree torture, Sameer said in a statement here.

In one viral video, at least six policemen in riot gear can be seen breaking open the door of a house, grabbing the men and assaulting them. 

“We had witnessed such instances of police brutality in many BJP governments but the TRS Government has broken all those records,” he said. 

The Congress leader further stated that thousands of Muslim youth held peaceful protests demanding the arrest of BJP MLA Raja Singh who made derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammed. All those protests could have been avoided if the State Government would've accepted the demand made by former minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir of arresting Raja Singh under the PD Act.

“Congress leader Shabbir Ali was the first to demand Raja Singh's arrest under the PD Act,” Sameer said, adding that Ali had rightly pointed out that Raja Singh was a habitual offender with over 30 cases of hate speeches pending against him.
