AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi lashed out at the Home Ministry and BJP claiming that they see 'Muslims as terrorists'. The statement came in retaliation to Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy's statement saying that 'Hyderabad is a safe zone for terror'
Contrasting BJP lawmaker's statement, Owaisi said that the capital of Telangana has been peaceful with the absence of any communal riots and that it is, in fact, a developing city.
He said, "He has not even taken charge of his post and he is saying such absurd things. It is disappointing, that they say such things, in Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana there has been peace, no communal riots take place, big challenging festivals have taken place, and in Hyderabad is the second top hub for software, it is a growing city. Why is he against Telangana? Doesn't he want Telangana to grow?"
The AIMIM chief further stated that Reddy's statement comes out of fear as Telangana is 'growing under KCR' furthermore questioning that if ISIS sympathisers are being found in Uttar Pradesh, does it make the state a 'hub of terrorism'
He said, "He is scared because Telangana is growing under KCR leadership. When it comes to ISIS, aren't people getting caught in Uttar Pradesh the most? So is that a hub now too? But this is what we expect from them because wherever they see Muslims they see them as terrorists."
Owaisi further attacked PM Modi and BJP of whisking 'confusion theory'
He said, "Just because you won 300 votes will you make Muslims as second class citizens. You won 300 votes but not the Constitution. You should see in the past 5 years what the Prime Minister said, it started when he became the Prime Minister with 'Love Jihad', then 'Ghar Vapsi' and then mob lynching. After mob lynching, Dalits were attacked. After Prime Minister's speech, an incident of hate-crime occurred in Gurugram on a Muslim, secondly, in Begusarai a man was shot after being asked his name. All these things are happening. We have the Constitution with us, we will follow it. Is it not true that the Prime Minister and his party received the highest Hindu votes. The data is saying that."
"This is their policy, Modi will say something and VHP will say something. Modi will say something and Giriraj (Singh) will say something, Modi will say something and the Yoga Baba will say something else, they have a theory of confusion and they will keep practicing that," he added.
