Asaduddin Owaisi, the president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), has slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for revoking the suspension of its Telangana MLA T Raja Singh.

Owaisi tweeted, “Hate speech is the fastest way to a promotion in Modi’s BJP.”

Singh was suspended from the BJP in August last year for his alleged derogatory comments on prophet Mohammed. He was arrested under the Preventive Detention Act, but was released on bail in November.

The BJP leadership revoked Singh’s suspension on Sunday, considering his explanation in response to the show cause notice served by the party earlier.

Singh will be contesting from the Goshamahal Assembly seat in the upcoming Telangana Legislative Assembly elections on November 30.
