Police had made massive security arrangements at the historic Mecca Masjid to prevent any possible trouble. No rally was taken out from the mosque, which has witnessed several violent protests in the past.

Police have already tightened security at the US consulate building located in Begumpet area.

Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma, who supervised the security arrangements near Mecca Masjid, told reporters that the police would act firmly against anybody trying to hurt sentiments of any community.

The police chief said police were make efforts attempts to get the film removed from YouTube and other social networking sites.

Hyderabad MP also called on top police officials to ensure that circulation of the movie through social media was stopped.
called for strict monitoring of the content over social networking websites. He appealed to the Muslim community to maintain peace.

Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) and other Muslim organizations have also urged the government to take steps to remove the blasphemous movie from the sites.

I have a question

I have a question for everyone, how did our Prophet (PBUH) reacted when he was confronted by cheap and derogatory slurs by his opposition ? Then compare your thoughts and actions with that

Dam hai toh US se wapas aajao.

Good that voice is raised. But i see many people from chanchalguda, dabeerpura are driving trucks in USA and many people always dreams of going USA. Bahut log apne bachon ko bhi bhej dete hain. Agar dum hai toh wapas aajao aur apne bachon ko bhi wapas bulao. Kya apne ko zaroori hai us hukoomat ka rizq khana jo tauheen kare islam ki?

I appreciate the strike but the same time we must sue this guy in india and we should bring him to india under the global violence eruption act, like how the usa and uk take the dara singh from our country.
