Regar, 36, has been in jail since in December 2017 after he allegedly burnt a 45-year-old man, Mohammad Afrazul, to death in Rajsamand district of Rajasthan in a suspected case of 'love jihad'.
In a major security breach, Regar had recorded and uploaded two videos from inside the Jodhpur Central jail. In the videos, which surfaced in February this year, Regar is seen repeating his rant against 'jihadis'.
Wearing a hoodie and well-equipped with earphones, he appears to be reading from a long hate-filled script smartly and confidently in the videos.
In the seven-minute long video, he urges Hindus to stand united and bring 'Ram Rajya' in India.
Regar is seen saying that he could not tolerate threats to Hindu women from jihadi forces and hence came forward to help one of them.
