In what can possibly be termed as hate speech, actor Ajaz Khan is seen blatantly inciting communal violence in a Facebook video. In the video, Khan blamed RSS and Bajrang Dal for forcing people to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and spoiling the secular fabric of the country. He accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of shielding the RSS and Bajrang Dal. Khan was earlier arrested by Mumbai police after he was found in possession of drugs.
Asking PM Modi to take action against such people Khan said he will address the Prime Minister with a ‘Tu’ instead of ‘Aap’ if he did not act. He alleged PM Modi himself is an RSS member and that is why he is supporting the people who force others to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram.’ Calling Nathu Ram Godse a terrorist, Khan said people imposing the slogan of Jai Shri Ram on others worship Godse and consider him their God while he was a murderer who killed Mahatma Gandhi.
“Ab peer parvat si ho chuki hai, ab pighalni chahiye aur inke pichhwado se bhi ganga nikalni chahiye,” said Khan asking PM Modi to punish the people who impose the slogan of Jai Shri Ram on others and set an example. Khan claimed such people are deliberately targeting poor people as it is a part of their conspiracy and if they meet him, he will make them chant Allah-u-Akbar instead of Jai Shri Ram.
Urging the Muslim community to come out on roads, Khan said they should be ashamed of themselves for not coming out on streets after the alleged lynching of Tabrez Ansari. He threatened that if 40 crore Muslims of the country, including legal and illegal residents, came out on the streets the whole country would be shut down.
He requested the Muslims of the country, in the name of Allah, to skip work for one day and parade on the streets of the country. “When will my brothers wearing skull caps come out on streets?” he questioned.
Khan asserted that he will keep spreading his message and that he is not afraid of even going to jail because ultimately he has to show his face to Allah.
In recent times, there has been a spate of ‘hate crimes’ that gained massive press attention. However, despite the media hype, they turned out to be fake.
