The construction of Ram temple has been a contentious issue and in another fresh case of blatant statements, a Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Hyderabad Raja Singh has sparked a row with his controversial statement.

Singh has said that he would behead the ones opposing the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

“Some people are saying that they will create ruckus if Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya. I welcome the ones who are warning of dire consequences. We have been waiting for years to behead such traitors,” the MLA said while addressing a public gathering on Thursday.
