Former Bigg Boss contestant and actor Ajaz Khan, who was arrested on April 18, 2020 i.e. Saturday for his objectionable remarks during a Facebook live, has been granted bail on Friday by Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate Court on a surety of Rs 1 lakh.
The actor was arrested after he was ranting over how Muslims are targeted for all calamities including the natural ones.
Ajaz had said, “If an ant dies, a Muslim is responsible. If an elephant dies, a Muslim is responsible. If there is an earthquake in Delhi, a Muslim is responsible i.e a Muslim is responsible for any incident but have you ever thought who is responsible for this conspiracy?”
