BJP Adilabad MP Soyam Bapu Rao - Sakshi Post

Adilabad: BJP Adilabad MP Soyam Bapu Rao evoked legal trouble for himself after he threatened that the Muslim youth will be “beheaded” if they harass or misbehave with Adivasi girls or women.

The threat was caught on camera and the video has been widely circulated on social media ever since. The MP is also the president of an organization, Thudumdebba which works for Adivasi empowerment in Telangana. The video shows the BJP MP addressing a gathering in Adilabad where he is heard saying, “I warn the Muslim youth, if you harass Adivasi women, Soyam Bapu Rao will behead you.”


Subsequently, a complaint was filed against the BJP MP with the Adilabad ASP Kancha Mohan. The complainant, Adilabad Congress Minority Cell President Sajid Khan demanded an apology from Soyam Bapu Rao and also to take back his words. Several politicians from Congress, TRS, and Majlis Bachao Tehreek also condemned the controversial statement made by the BJP MP.

In response, Soyam Bapu Rao defended his remarks claiming that the thought behind his statement was to instill fear in the Muslim youth who ‘lure’ Adivasi women. Speaking to news agency TNM, he also went on to allege that there were reports of 'inappropriate relationships' and exploitation which is the reason behind his warning. Mr. Rao added that there will be a fear amongst them if he warns them.

Questioning the Muslims marrying Adivasis, he said that they want to protect their culture.

In the recently conducted Lok Sabha Elections, Soyam Bapu Rao was elected to the Parliament from Adilabad. Previously, he contested on a Congress ticket from the Boath constituency in 2018.
