Congress MP Imran Pratapgarhi also shared the viral video and said that the Delhi Police official doesn't understand the basic principles of humanity. “This @DelhiPolice soldier kicking a person while offering Namaz probably does not understand the basic principles of humanity, what is this hatred that is filled in the heart of this soldier, Delhi Police is requested to file a case against this soldier under appropriate sections. Enter and terminate its service,” Imran Pratapgarhi said.
