AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan called for the beheading of Dasna Devi Temple head priest Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati for his alleged critical remarks on Prophet Muhammad.
“We cannot tolerate such impertinence for our beloved Prophet Muhammad. This hateful insect should be awarded the most severe punishment by slitting his tongue and neck. But the law of the land does not permit us to do this, we have faith in the Indian Constitution and I want Delhi Police to take note of this,” Amanatullah Khan tweeted.
Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati was speaking at an event held at the Press Club of India when he urged Hindus to be fearless in highlighting the characteristics of Prophet Muhammad.
The Dasna Devi Temple head priest further said, “If Muslims come to know the reality of Muhammad, then they will be ashamed of being a Muslim.”
However, Amanatullah Khan, in the past, has played the ‘Muslim card’ to defend Delhi Riots accused Tahir Hussain, claiming that the latter was being punished only because he was Muslim, ignoring the mountain of evidence pulling up against Hussain. Khan himself was accused of inciting violence in Delhi on the 15th of December, 2019 during anti-CAA protests.
Amanatullah Khan has been in the eye of the storm throughout his Assembly. Khan, who is also chairman of the Delhi Waqfboard, defended AAP councilor Tahir Hussain, arrested in connection with the killing of IB staffer ‘Ankit Sharma’ during the violence in northeast Delhi.
