BJP wants to make a Muslim-mukt Bharat: Asaduddin Owaisi

Stoking a fresh controversy, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Supremo Asaduddin Owaisi alleged alleged that the ruling BJP at center is trying to create a Muslim-mukt (Muslim free) India and not a Congress-Mukt Bharat. The comment came while Owaisi was addressing a rally at poll-bound Telangana. He also hit out at other parties in the state, Telegu Desham Party (TDP) and Congress.

Owaisi said (BJP chief) Amit Shah visited Telangana and said he would rid Hyderabad of Majlis.

“Amit Shah aake Telangana mein boley Hyderabad ko majlis se mukt karoonga. Kaun sa mukt karenge aap? Kahan se mukt karenge…Aap majlis mukt nahi, Bharat se musalmaanon ko mukt karna chahte hain. Bharat se musalmanon ka alienation karna chahte hain,” said Owaisi.

He further took a dig at Telugu Desam Party, saying the “party is trying too hard to attain victory in Telangana, but they won’t succeed”.

“TDP has allied with Congress; (How will) you run Telangana by sitting in Andhra Pradesh?…(How will) Congress take decisions for Telangana by sitting in Delhi? Will the decisions be taken from Nagpur? Absolutely not,” Owaisi said.
