This is not first time he has done something vile, he seems to be a serial offender. Watch below video where in his poem calling for one more Godhra like incident to teach Muslims a lesson.
In another video he is seen criticising Azaan, calling it anti-hindu practice. In a diverse and largest democratic country in the world, such extremist are threats for peace and tranquillity.
We are waiting for Jaipur Police response.

I hope memes that enraged him, mocked his faith, get shared even more, become even more popular. https://t.co/Jht3DuxfP5
