A court here Tuesday fixed April 26 for hearing a plea for a permanent restraint on Andhra Pradesh legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi's hate speeches being aired on YouTube.


Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) leader Owaisi delivered the controversial speeches at public meetings in Nizamabad and Nirmal of Andhra Pradesh Dec 8 and 22, 2012, respectively.
