A man has been arrested by The Gujarat Police for posting a controversial video on social media. The video was made more than a year ago but came into light now.

In the said video, the man can be seen talking about Muhammad Bin Qasim, an Arab commander and first Muslim ruler who conquered the Sindh region of the present-day Pakistan, and Mahmud of Ghazni, a ruler of Turkic origin.

According to media reports, the man has been identified as Irshad Rashid. He was arrested in Panipat in Haryana by police of Gir in Somnath district of Gujarat on Wednesday. He has been traced through Surveillance technology.

A case has been filed against Rashid by Somnath Trust’s general manager, Vijyasing Chavda in Prabhas Patan police station.
“Today a video went viral on social media where a Muslim person wearing a white kurta, white cap and spotting a beard is seen describing the history of the temple and its plundering by Mahmud Ghaznavi and Muhammad bin Qasim referring to it as good work. He also used objectionable words that cause friction between two faiths,” Chavda stated in his complaint as quoted by The Indian Express.

Rashid has been booked under several sections including, section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and race) and 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings).

The video shared by Rashid was uploaded on social media a year ago recalls and explains how Mahmood Ghaznavi and Muhammad Bin Qasim conquered the Somnath Temple. The video also urges Muslims to read and reflect on their “glorious” past.

In the video, Rashid also went on to say that the Muslim community should be proud of what their ancestors had accomplished in history.

In a part of a video, Rashid says, “Even if today they are called plunders the history is very evident that they have been just rulers and promoted Islam.”

The video was shot by Rashid at a place just 1.5 kilometres away from the temple.
