The controversial YouTuber (of Pakistani origin) from Luton has been detained by Scotland Yard. Raja has been summoned for questioning by investigators regarding his alleged role in inciting violence on YouTube and other online platforms.
Notably, Raja’s channel on a video streaming service was recently banned for disseminating false information. His fervent support for deposed prime minister Imran Khan and strong opposition to Pakistan’s military establishment led to his arrest in Pakistan on various charges related to incitement against the government.
Raja, a former soldier and war-wounded veteran with over 19 years of diverse experience, has consistently attracted attention due to his outspoken views. Recognized as a blogger and popular figure in global politics and defense analysis, he possesses a keen understanding of current events.
In a separate case involving criminal intimidation and breach of trust, a Pakistani court has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for Raja. Recent developments have seen the arrests of other individuals, including YouTuber and news anchor Wajahat Saeed Khan, Adil Raja, Shaheen Sehbai, Haider Raza Mehdi, and others. The charges against them are related to terrorism and sedition.
Raja was notorious for spreading propaganda against government agencies, aiming to sow chaos through his activities.
