BJP Wants Action Against Owaisi for Objectionable Remarks

BJP Andhra Pradesh unit today demanded state government to initiate criminal action against MIM legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi for allegedly making provocative speeches and hurting sentiments of a particular community.

Owaisi, who represents Chandrayangutta Assembly constituency in the city through his party Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), allegedly used inflammatory and derogatory words against a community while addressing public meetings in Adilabad and Nizamabad districts recently, state party unit president G Kishan Reddy told reporters here.

Strongly condemning the speeches of Owaisi which "intended to hurt religious sentiments," Reddy asked why the state government did not take note of it when Owaisi openly used "objectionable, abusive language and inflammatory words against a particular community."

Demanding immediate action against Owaisi, Reddy said, "The party feels that such speeches tantamount to threatening the very democratic fabric of the nation and divide people."

The party would write a letter to Election Commission seeking de-recognition of MIM for allegedly making an attempt to promote animosity among people of different religions and trying to divide people, the state BJP chief said.

He said CDs containing Owaisi's "objectionable" speeches would be sent to the state Governor, Chief Minister and Assembly speaker seeking action against him.

No. Mr Owaisi has every right to say whatever he wants in this citadel of secular democracy.
