Asaduddin Owaisi: BJP Wants Muslim-Mukt Bharat

"Not Majlis 'mukt' (free), you want to rid India of Muslims, you want to do annihilation of Muslims from India," Owaisi said

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday stoked a big controversy ahead of Assembly Elections in five states when he alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wanted a 'Muslim-mukt Bharat'. In a fresh attack on Amit Shah, Owaisi said that the BJP president wants a 'Muslim-mukt Bharat' and not 'Congress-mukt Bharat', adding that an attempt is being made to scare the minorities.

In the video, recorded on Wednesday night, Owaisi is issuing a characteristically fiery speech, where he accuses the BJP of attempting to make India devoid of Muslims and minorities.

"You (BJP) don't want India to be free of Majlis (how Owaisi refers to his AIMIM party). In fact, you want India to be free of Muslims," Owaisi begins. He continues, "You don't want India to be free of Congress but you want to do alienation of the Muslims. But the Muslim minorities have the right to stay here according to the Indian Constitution."

"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.

Here's what Owaisi said: 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.

'Sabka saath sabka vikas' is the mantra for the BJP. AIMIM has been making divisive statements. The party name also talks about only one religion and statements also cater only to Muslim community. I would only say that Mr Owaisi only make responsible statements, spread love after the Diwali festival, not hatred. He's also irrelevant in Indian politics. He's only relevant when he makes such divisive statements."
