Muslims must not be afraid of the country’s tough situation: Owaisi
AIMIM Chief Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi said that Muslims should not be afraid of the current tough situation which is currently going on in the country. They should rather stand firm against it. He said that Muslims have rejected Jinnah’s two-nation theory, so that they are the first citizens of India. He advocated for the moderate forces to be supported for the survival of the country’s secularism and democracy.
Mumbai, Sept 7 (HMS) – All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslim (AIMIM) Chief Mr. Barristeruddin Owaisi said on September 4 in a statement in Mumbai that the Muslims should not be afraid of the current tough situation of the country. They must rather stand firm and fight against these conditions for the survival of the country’s secular and democratic ethos.
Addressing to a press conference held at the Vilas Hotel in south Mumbai, MIM President Asaduddin Owaisi asked as to why the MIM is always questioned if there is no unity in the opposition. He said that the media should also ask the same to other parties.
According to Owaisi, the root cause for not alliance is due to seat-sharing. He added that the BJP in the state of Maharashtra does not talk about farmers’ suicides, GST and unemployment as well. Only the NRC and the amendment bills are discussed to give the entire situation a communal color.
Asaduddin Owaisi clarified that the amended Citizen Bill is being widely spoken only for giving citizenship to the illegal Hindu migrants in the country, which is a dangerous process. If this bill was implemented, it would only promote Jinnah’s ideology.
He urged that the Muslims should not just pray but also participate in the electoral process. Asaduddin Owaisi has said that no one can be granted citizenship on the basis of religion.
