Hyderabad Desk

Hyderabad: The BJP MP candidate for the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency, Kompella Madhavi Latha, has moved the Telangana High Court seeking the quashing of the case filed against her over a controversial arrow gesture allegedly aimed at a mosque.

Earlier, after the case was filed against her, she stated, “This is ridiculous. If I were against Muslims, then why would I participate in Hazrat Ali Saab ka Juloos that took place during Ramzan? I have distributed food to many people with my own hands. The reason why these people want to target me through their dirty social media posts is that they are scared from the day I appeared on Rajat Sharma’s ‘Aap Ki Adalat’.”
