A man was arrested in Banmore town near Morena for allegedly circulating an objectionable picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on social media, police said on Friday.

Aslam Khan (25), who runs a mobile shop, was arrested Thursday night for allegedly circulating the objectionable photo of the Prime Minister, Banmore Sub Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP) Atmaram Sharma said.

Some BJP workers came across the picture after it went viral on social media platforms, following which party workers staged a protest led by Banmore division president Rambaran Mavai before the Banmore police station.

An FIR has been lodged against Khan and further investigations are on, he added.

                      Feku is now being turned into a saint. What a joke! So why can't they put Rahul hi and Kejriwal in jail? They called him psychopath and "khoon ka dalal".

                        So this is freedom of expression! Ex-PM Dr Manmohan Singh was lampooned all the time but never even once anyone was arrested. It's shame.

                          Is this some kind of joke? How many will we keep arresting for all these matters. Mr. Modi is a PM and a politician.. not any holy figure. It is not uncommon in any democracy in the world.

                              I follow comments of readers in 3-4 English newspapers. I have observed except a very few Muslims are against Narendera Modi.

                                    There is always a line of absurdity and stupidity. If one crosses it, has to be taken to task. Even when you forward a message, the sender, in a way, helps in spreading rumors, which spread like a wild fire. What'sApp and facebook have now become a media on which anyone can uploan anything. Let the law sharpen its teech.

                                            This was not an act of sedition. Why was he arrested?
