Dasna Devi Temple head priest Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati, known for his hate-speeches, has stoked controversy by making derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammed.

The preist was speaking at the Press Club of India when he made the remarks, the video of which is now viral on social media.

Hyderabad MP, Assadudin Owaisi has said that insulting Prophet is unacceptable and asked “can these criminals acting as religious teachers get over their unnatural fixation with Islam?”

“Insulting Prophet (SAW) is unacceptable. Can these criminals acting as religious teachers get over their unnatural fixation with Islam? For something that you do not like, you do spend a lot of time on it. I’m sure there’s enough in your own belief system that you can discuss,” said Owaisi tweeted.

Meanwhile, AAP MLA and Chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board Amanatullah Khan has filed a police complaint against extremist priest.
