President of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Asaduddin Owaisi Wednesday said that India cannot be governed on the basis of “Hindi, Hindu and Hindustan”.

Owaisi, while citing a news report which claimed that a scuffle broke out between members of the BJP and BSP in Aligarh Municipal Corporation in Uttar Pradesh Tuesday after a BSP corporator took oath in Urdu, tweeted that he himself has taken oath in Urdu three times earlier as an MP and will do so again in 2019.

“As an MP I have taken oath in Urdu three times, so is that unconstitutional and will again take in Urdu in 2019 InshAllah. India cannot be governed on the basis of Hindi, Hindu and Hindustan,” the Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad said in a tweet.

    "... dia cannot be governed on the basis of “Hindi, Hindu and Hindustan”........neither can India be governed by the whims and fancies of any religion majority or minority. Unless the Unified Civil code Bill is passed and implemented, some religion is bound to hold law and order to ransom, and this is what has to be curbed. Radical Hinduism and the growth of indoctrination with Wahabism in India are both to blame for this. Unless citizens are educated and motivated to consider country before religion, this country is in for an impending disaster. Religion must be relegated to a personal choice only and no communal or societal unrest in the name of religion must be allowed to prevail. In fact, all religions must be deemed as something purely personal. It should have nothing to do with elections and governance of the country. Frankly speaking, all public celebrations of a religious nature must be banned if this country seeks to progress in any meaningful way.

        There is a huge disconnect between Muslims and Owaisi. Muslim leaders are the greatest threat to peace loving Muslims.

          If India wins referendum (It will win as Jammu Ladakh non-sunni Kashmiris support India) ,those who are opposing India must leave and go elsewhere. If such condition is placed then India will hold referendum. Language bull India is great.

            He is right. Everybody has his own choice of Language in India, and we have 15 Official Languages at least. If it is permitted in the Cons ution of India to take oath in any one language, what is wrong to the BJP? BJP leaders one day go to mental hospitals by their slogans. They don't have proper development agenda for the people. Their Hatred against Muslims will destroy their life by themselves, as most of them have criminal background.
