BJP trying to incite communal violence in Telangana ahead of Munugode byelection: Asaduddin Owaisi | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi has charged the BJP of trying to incite communal violence in Hyderabad and Telangana to derive political mileage ahead of the ensuing 11-day Ganesh festival and a crucial bypoll to Munugode assembly constituency.
He condemned the derogatory comments made against Prophet Muhammad and Muslims by BJP MLA from Gosha Mahal in Hyderabad T Raja Singh and also condemned the slogans raised by some of the emotionally charged Muslims against causing harm to Raja Singh.
“Don’t take law into your own hands,” he told Muslims and demanded that the TRS government should collect a voice sample of Raja Singh and make the case stronger.
“The BJP wants to destroy the social fabric of India,” he said.
Owaisi demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP leadership at the centre inform the people of India whether it has become the policy of the saffron party to torture the Muslims emotionally and mentally and continuously make the minority community feel insecure and come onto the roads.
“Will PM Modi condemn Raja Singh’s comments? We are celebrating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav and BJP is intentionally making its leaders issue such statements for political mileage. If the BJP wants to fight K Chandrasekhar Rao-led TRS, it should fight it out politically. We are ready for a contest politically,” Owaisi said.
Stating that peace has been prevailing for 8 years in Hyderabad and Telangana and that BJP’s political game plan will hurt the investment growth of Greater Hyderabad, the AIMIM chief said the saffron party and RSS seem to have made it a policy to hurt Muslims to derive political advantage. This is a continuation of Nupur Sharma case and BJP doesn’t seem to have learned from earlier cases.
In a related development, the Chandrayangutta flyover that was scheduled for inauguration on Tuesday has been postponed to August 27, 2022, apparently due to the protests that broke out in the city following the derogatory remarks made by BJP MLA Raja Singh.
