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...

    In past many Hindu politicians tried to break out country by making hate speeches and tried to divide out country again example..Bal thakrey told muslims should go to stan , Praveen tougdia , told dont forget muzzafarnagar openly in media , Dr. swamy told Muslims should be done DNA check and then given Indian pport, and the list goes on.... and to reply 1 muslim politicians replies them back then all hindus are offended and are saying hate speech.. These are double standards.. and illetrate people does this game...WE are educated and we should stop all those hindu Hate speeches who propagate hate amongs us Indians.. Akber owaisi will stop his speeches when all these hindu hate Preachers will stop ... These politicians are trying to break out country , I heard Mr asad owaisi speachesi n parliament he talks like an educated Mp, he is Highly educated barrister from London.

    Islam came in Persia[Iran] , Afghanistan in 7th century and mongols converted to Islam in 14 century..vaders are coming from since 3rd century to India and looting our mother India and our temples since before Islam .... and in 5th century religion in Afghanistan was Buddhism and then also they use to come and try to invade india and loot our temples with jeweler ...Mughals were Buddhist and atheist in 12 century then also they use to invade and kill each other in Mona.. so ..Islam has nothing to do with these invaders.. 3rd century Chinese always use to invade mughals and mughals always tried to invade china .. and Chinese were not Muslims nor mughals were muslims in 3rd century.... please read and try to get to know and understand and never just blindly comment on any thing without any knowledge from books or scholar thesis.
