Mumbai: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader and Telangana MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi earlier booked for 'hate speech' againt court a controversy on Monday after he said "Laws to destroy Muslims are framed in Parliament and Assemblies".
He said that Muslims don't need 'sympathy’, and that his brother (Asaduddin Owaisi) could win with the help of ‘his brothers’ more than 50 seats in parliament elections.
“The laws that destroy Muslims are not made on roads, marketplaces or grounds but in Parliament, Assemblies and Municipalities.
"If Muslims want and if they all come together then we will not need anybody’s mercy or help or actions. Our brother himself with his vote can win India’s 50 Parliament seats", Akbaruddin Owaisi, younger brother of Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi is quoted as saying.
Owaisi reportedly also used derogatory language against Prime Minister Modi.
Akbaruddin Owaisi was responding to the series of attacks on Muslims in the name of cow protection, including the recent lynching in a running train of 16-year-old Junaid Khan of Haryana.
Reacting to Owaisi's outbursts, Haryana Minister Anil Vij on Tuesday said that the AIMIM legislator should not create misunderstanding between Hindus and Muslims, and let the entire nation live in harmony.
"The game that Owaisi is trying to play by creating misunderstanding between Hindus and Muslims, and wants to acquire votes on the basis of that, perhaps he is not aware of the consequences.
"He should let the public live in harmony and should not create a battle arena for these two communities for mere politics," Vij told ANI.
He further said that both the communities are equivalent before the government, but those who are breaking the law and order or are involved in terrorist activities, the government takes action against them.
"Junaid's murder is a big despair for the entire country. We all are against such violence," he asserted.
On the other hand, Shiv Sena also slammed Akbaruddin Owaisi saying he can make such statements in Hyderabad, but not in Maharashtra.
"The government should take action against Owaisi. Otherwise, Shiv Sena knows how to teach a lesson to such people", Sena said.
