Owaisi: ‘Could I have tweeted Indian identity is Islam?

Owaisi said the country is turning a Hindu Rashtra and he wants to be the voice of ignored Muslims in the state and protect their freedom.

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) leader Akbaruddin Owaisi attacked the RSS and Narendra Modi’s politics at Bhendi Bazar on Wednesday. Calling Modi the “greatest actor ever” and slamming RSS leaders for allegedly forcing their Hindutva ideologies on the nation through Doordarshan, Owaisi said the country is turning a Hindu Rashtra and he wants to be the voice of ignored Muslims in the state and protect their freedom.

“Mohan Bhagwat says identity of India is Hinduism. Modi tweets that Bhagwat was correct. If I had tweeted Indian identity is Islam, what would have happened?” said Owaisi, campaigning for Mumbadevi candidate  Shahid Rafi, son singer late Mohd Rafi.

“Praveen Togadia said don’t forget Muzaffarnagar, isn’t that provocative speech? But when I speak, I get 50 days of jail time. Bhagwat gets display on Doordarshan, there is a programme in foundation if RSS… When Bhagwat said there is Ram’s blood in every Indian Muslim’s blood, did they arrest him?… This country is soon becoming a Hindu Rashtra… They want finish off Muslims, and end securalism along with conspiracies of Sangh Parivar.”

“Burning Gujarat, bloodied Gujarat is the identity of Modi. The one who could not pronounce Mohandas Gandhi properly has become  PM,” said Owaisi.

    Don't put ur ugly views upon other mushlims... Indian mushlims are very good compared to others because they have the same DNA as all others. Because of mushlim invader's forceful conversion of the ancestors of the current mushlims to ishlam doesn't make them less Indian ohk. Indian Mushlim have slowly understood the real fact. So stop doing politics by tell these.

      Mr. Owaisi should act like a man and talk to the point. What was the issue with the content of the broadcast on Doordarshan. If he is so much concerned about the human rights then he should be man enough to be the voice of Hindus during Islamic invasion of India. I believe it's fair to ask this much from Mr. Owaisi.

            Democracy gives fair chance to communities to represent by its leader...and Asaduddin owaisi is the only Muslim leader in Parliament at the moment.unless a representative represents its community in Parliament and share and discuss its community problems how can a community solve its problems..? go to schools or colleges , every cl has a cl leader who represents the cl , unless we have a cl representative how ca people know about the problems of the students int he cl.... Sikhs should have there leaders in parliment , christians , dalits, jains, buddhist , hindus, muslims, pharsis, every one should have representations in parliament by this we can make our india a strong country with justice...
