New Delhi: Hyderabad MP and AIMIM President Asad Uddin Owaisi responded to the objectionable remarks made by BJP leader Vinay Katiyar on Muslims. Asaduddin Owaisi said that since his tenure as Rajya Sabha MP is about to end soon he is talking more.
He take potshots at Katiyar and said,”Now what can we say? His tenure is about to end and before the lamp is extinguished, there is a lot of flares (aur chirag bujhne se pehle bhadakta bahut hai),”
The AIMIM chief further gave a detailed explanation as to why he demanded the central government to bring out a law that would make calling Indian Muslim “Pakistani” a punishable offense. Owaisi said,”I have nothing to do with Partition but associating Muslims with partition is not correct. I want more integration, I want India to be strengthened. But people in power question our love for this country.If Modi wants new India he should make this law. Please make this law so that the love of Muslims for this country is never questioned,”.
Earlier in the day, Katiyar had said that the Muslims divided the country in the name of religion; hence they should leave the country.
