BJP leaders on Monday alleged Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair, arrested for allegedly hurting religious sentiments, was a “jihadi” who incited violence and slammed the opposition for its criticism of the government over the arrest.

He has been sent to one-day police custody by a magistrate in New Delhi. On June 20, a case was registered against Zubair on charges of promoting enmity between different groups and hurting religious sentiments, over a tweet from 2018.
