Islamists on Twitter extended their support to Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan for giving a call to behead Dasna Temple’s Yati Narasinghanand Saraswati.
Some called for arrest of Yati Narasinghanad while extending support to the man who said he’d rather have him beheaded.
AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan had said that Yati Narasinghanand could not be beheaded for alleged blasphemy because Indian laws do not allow it.

Why is the man who has been imprisoned in the glory of the prophet not yet gone to jail
Are you supporting them Or are you afraid of Modi gov 😞

Congress supporters also cast aspersions that Delhi Police was not arresting Yati Narasinghanand because they are ‘afraid’ of Modi government.

On 3rd April 2021, AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan called for the beheading of Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati in a tweet.
He had even made it his pinned tweet. Amanatullah Khan said, “This insult to our prophet is not tolerable to us at all. The tongue and head of this hateful insect should be cut off as punishment. However, Indian laws do not permit this.”
Despite netizens reporting the tweet as call for violence, Twitter let it stay on its platform for a day. Only on Sunday was it removed as it violated Twitter policy. However, it continued to stay on his Facebook page.
