FIR against Asaduddin Owaisi

Bhopal: A local lawyer has lodged a complaint against All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi over remarks he had made soon after Supreme Court delivered the Ayodhya verdict.

Advocate Pawan Kumar lodged a complaint against the Owaisi at the Jahangirabad police station over his remarks on the Ayodhya verdict on Saturday, according to media reports.

The FIR has been registered against Asaduddin Owaisi for inciting a section of the society with his remarks.

Reacting to the Supreme Court verdict, Asaduddin Owaisi expressed apprehension that the Sangh Pariwar might use this judgment in cases of many other mosques on which they have claims. He said their list includes the mosques at Mathura, Kashi and Lucknow.

The Hyderabad MP also cautioned that the country was heading on the path of a 'Hindu rashtra'. "Sangh Pariwar and BJP have been saying that the road to Hindu rashtra road starts from Ayodhya. They now want to bring NRC, Citizenship Amendment Bill. In fact, Modi 2.0 is to make India a Hindu rashtra," he said.

The Supreme Court of India on Saturday granted the ownership of the 2.77 acres of disputed land in Ayodhya to the Hindus, paving the way for the construction of a Ram Temple, and ruled that the Muslims will get 5 acres of land at an alternative site.

Owaisi told reporters that those who demolished the Babri Masjid were entrusted with the land to build Ram temple. "If Babri Masjid was not demolished on December 6, 1992, what would have been the judgment of the Supreme Court," he asked while pointing out that the apex court in its judgment described the demolition as an illegal act.

The AIMIM President also endorsed the stand taken by All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) that it is not satisfied with the judgment. He said that the AIMPLB would hold a meeting and take a decision whether to go for an appeal against the verdict and whether to accept the offer of of 5 acres of alternate land to build the mosque or not. He said his personal view was that the offer should be rejected.

"We were fighting for legal righte. We don't need 5 acres land in charity. Muslims are poor, weak and they have been discriminated against but they can build a mosque on their own," he said.

The MP repeatedly remarked "supreme but not infallible", pointing out that these were the words of former Chief Justice of India J.S. Verma, who wrote a book with the same title.

Owaisi contended that a mosque "was there, is there and will always be there" and that there can be no compromise on it. "Will tell our generation that mosque stood there for 500 years but on December 6, 1992 it was demolished under Sangh Pariwar and Congress conspiracy. The Supreme Court was betrayed.

"What happened on December 6, 1992 was not an issue of Muslims alone. The very foundations of secularism were shaken. Calling it vandalism is understatement," he said.
