A video has started trending on Twitter as soon as Faruqui’s arrest. In this video Munawar is seen saying vulgar remarks on Lord Rama and mother Sita, saying, “Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram Ji. Ram ji don’t give a f …. about drank. Hearing this, Ram Ji says that I myself have not been home for fourteen years. If Sita listens, she will doubt it. Sita is already suspicious of Madhuri.
