Faizan Lala posted a derogatory post about Lord Rama on Instagram on 2nd January, and then posted more insults for Hindu gods and asked a Hindu girl to embrace Islam

On Wednesday (3rd January), the Madhya Pradesh Police arrested a Muslim youth identified as Faizan Lala, son of Nizam Lala, for deliberately insulting Lord Rama on social media. The accused is said to have posted a derogatory photo of Lord Rama and abused the Hindu deity further in the comments section of the post. The Police booked and arrested the accused under section 295 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.

According to the reports, the incident is said to have happened in the Keli village of Khargone district in Madhya Pradesh.

The police reportedly took action based on the complaint filed by one Ashwini Thakur.

The complainant stated that the accused in the comment section asked one of the Hindu girls on Instagram to leave Hinduism and follow Allah instead. The girl then slammed the accused and said that she was a Hindu. Following this, the accused used derogatory language for Lord Rama.
