Hate speech not new for Owaisi clan
HYDERABAD: For the Owaisi family, the arrest of Akbaruddin is a case of history repeating itself because the young MIM MLA from Chandrayanigutta is not the first person from the Owaisi family to have been arrested for making inflammatory speeches. Akbaruddin's grandfather, Maulana Abdul Wahed Owaisi, had ended up in Chanchalguda Jail for more than 11 months for making similar inflammatory speeches about 56 years ago.
Abdul Wahed was arrested on March 14, 1958, under orders issued by the Hyderabad police a day earlier under section 3 (1) read with sub-section (2) of the Preventive Detention Act, 1950. The police booked Abdul Wahed Owaisi for "Rousing or attempting to rouse communal passions and creating or attempting to create panic, resentment or hatred in the minds of the Muslims against the State and the non-Muslims as disclosed by his speeches made by him in public meetings" on 5th, 12th, 23rd and 24th October 1957, 15th November 1957 and January 9, 1958.
Abdul Wahed Owaisi was incarcerated for 11 months in Chanchalguda .
Abdul Wahed Owaisi was incarcerated for 11 months in Chanchalguda Jail.
At the time of the arrest, Owaisi was the president of the MIM which he had inherited from Qasim Rizvi in 1957 when the latter migrated to Pakistan.'
MIM was formed by Kasim Rizvi the Head of Razakars who was instrumental in forcing Nizam to opt for Pakista .Kasim Rizvi wa shea dof Razakars who killed Hindus in 1947-1948 pre Police Action . Abdul Whaid Owasi and Kasim Razvi were together in MIM.
Abaru Owasi surrendered as he knew he will be out with two weeks inspite of being charged with Non Bailable Sections.
By the way is Akbar Owasi in Jail -which Jail or is in Hospital but most likely is in some rest house ??? Where is he ???
The episode gives you the funny feeling of deja vu. It has broad similarities with the rise of bhindrawale, ghishing, thakre, etc
MIM must be legally banned for Anti India stand of theirs and provoking enmity with other communities ! surprisingly this party got a seat next to UPA chairman during their formal meetings with one MP, all in the name of secularism! I think interchanging the meaning of secularism with crude communalism is what the UPA stands for!! It’s a Shame!
No doubt, Owaisi's speech was inflammatory to the core (browse http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=m0hmoO9Dcacb ) . However, it wud be futile to counter the hate speech by Akbaruddin Owaisi with another hate speech by the likes of fundamentalist Hindu leaders from RSS, VHP and Bajrangdals.
The moment you start arresting them and getting excited about the speech, the cameras and mikes will come in hordes to amplify and spread the story all over to the disparate masses with lots of spices added, ultimately resulting in rioting and arson.
