I am ready to die for Dharma! – T. Raja Singh
When T Raja Singh was taken to the Police station after being arrested from his house on 23rd August, he said, “I don’t know what the Police will do. When I am free, I will definitely upload the second part of the video. I am doing this for Dharma. I am ready to die for Dharma”.
He added, “When derogatory jokes are made against Hindu Deities, targeting them, no offense is registered. Today, crimes are being registered against me everywhere; but is Shriram not our God ? Is Sita not our Mother ? Today, the devotees in Telangana are asking why protection is being given to certain leaders who disrespect Shriram and Mother Sita ? They get protection which even the Prime Minister does not get. What message does the Government want to give to the people ?”
