After the derogatory remarks of BJP MLA Raja Singh against Prophet Muhammad, Syed Abdahu Kashaf, a self-proclaimed social activist triggered a row after he raised the controversial slogan 'Sar tan se Juda’ while leading a protest against the MLA.

Kashaf, former IT cell head of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), called for the beheading of MLA for his alleged remarks. During the protests that broke on Monday night after the MLA posted a video on social media, Kashaf raised the slogan "Gustakh-e-Rasool Ki Ek Hi Saza, SAR Tan Se Juda” which means beheading only punishment for a person who disrespects the Prophet.

Kashaf raised the slogan while leading a protest outside the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police. He has over 50,000 followers on Twitter.

"There is no doubt on the only punishment which should be given to a person who disrespects the Prophet," Kashaf said.

However, he added that as "we are living in India and we have our Constitution, we staged a democratic protest to demand his arrest.” He termed the release of Raja Singh on bail as unfortunate.

In his defense, Kashaf said, "no one was hurt because of my slogan. No public or private property was damaged. Nothing has happened like what had happened after the slogan Desh Desh Ke Gaddaron Ko Goli Maro Salon Ko' was raised.”

When asked about the consequences of the slogan raised by him, he said, "Hyderabad is controlled by us."

Seeking immediate action, social media users demanded Kashaf's arrest for raising such a slogan. They alleged that he is "inciting violence".

Police had kept the MLA under house arrest and provided security for the smooth conduct of the show.
