Launching extreamly personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Akbaruddin Owaisi raised questions about the wife of the PM. “You [PM Modi] are really worried about our Muslim sisters, daughters and their divorce. Did you give rights to your wife?” Owaisi asked from a public rally. The statement came in response to Prime Minister’s criticism of AIMIM, in which he had called the party a “road breaker” to rights for Muslim women.
In a rally at LB Stadium, PM Modi on Monday had said that he has been working on liberating the Muslim women from triple talaq custom and that BJP will stand for the justice of Muslim women.
“When the Triple talaq Bill was passed, they called me names. But I say this to all those women afraid of the triple talaq system to support us. We guarantee that we will protect you from such evil customs,” PM Modi had said.
Akbaruddin Owaisi reminded PM Modi that the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) was located in this part of Hyderabad which made Mission Shakti’ successful.
“Kal ka chaiwala, aaj ka chowkidar [Yesterday’s chaiwala, today’s chowkidar] says that AIMIM is speed breaker of prosperity and development in the city. What does he know, he only knows how to say ‘chai’,” Akbaruddin Owaisi said.
