AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi must show in action what he said in words on cow vigilantism. Questioning the prime minister over the delay in speaking out on the issue, Owaisi said mere words won’t be enough and Modi will have to remove the sense of insecurity among Dalits and Muslims. Breaking his silence on cow vigilantes, the PM said on Saturday that anti-social elements were masquerading as ‘gau rakshaks’ (cow protectors). Alleging that all ‘gau rakshak samitis’ involved in the incidents were linked to the Sangh Parivar, the Hyderabad MP said the PM should act.

“The question is whether these will remain mere words. The PM has to rein in his own people, his party and BJP governments in states.” The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief also asked Modi to revisit the speeches he made about ‘pink revolution’ during the election campaign in 2014. Owaisi asked the PM why it took such a long time for him to speak on the issue.

“When Akhlaq was killed, the PM did not say anything. He was also silent when two Muslims were killed in Jharkhand. The PM did not say anything when a truck driver of Jammu was killed,” said Owaisi. The MP said as the video of the incident in Una in Gujarat reached every house in the country and Dalit society and secular-minded people started protesting, PM was forced to speak. Owaisi said all the incidents occurred in states where the BJP is in power or is organizationally strong. He said states like Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Haryana where the BJP was in power made stringent laws on cow slaughter.

“In these states, if somebody’s mother is assaulted, the guilty will not be sentenced for seven years but if there is cow slaughter, he will be imprisoned for seven years.”

Referring to the comments by the US on the incidents of cow vigilantism, he said other countries were getting an opportunity to interfere in India’s internal affairs.

“There is wide reporting of incidents in the international media. India needs foreign investment and what message such incidents will give to the international investor community,” he asked.

    Action is better than uttering rubbish and illogical statements. How can Prime Minister say , kill or attack him besides Dalits. These s or goons/gundas have no right to kill or attack anyone but their(goons) place is in jail.There is no one above the law but these dodgy cow rakshaks proving themselves above the law and police officers are hands are tied by the disgusting politicians interference in police independent work. Politicians interference in police work is an irony in India otherwise all these goondas, rapists, terrorists can be disciplined quickly. Giving lecture is not solving problems in India Mr Prime Minister. You are not an ordinary person whose life is cheap but you are elected by the mes in hope of serving the mes not flourishing or giving too much inputs to goondaism. Well choice is clear otherwise 2017 and 2019 election results will decide!!!

          This owaisi is the b team of Modi.Amit Shah's lawyer and Ex BJP MLA Yatin Ozha wrote an open letter wherein he described how Owaisi's brother Akbaruddin Owaisi travelled all the way to Amit Shahs residence before Bihar elections and met him at 3 am to discuss how owaisi would put up candidates in Seemanchal (Muslim majority) areas of Bihar to cut nitish votes and help bjp win.Also discussed was strategy to communalize and vilify each other with remarks to divide society.Unfortunately for him,Bihar saw through his game and kicked him out for good.lt;br/gt;By the way feku.......have you given the 1.25 lakh crore special package promised to Bihar before elections ?? lt;br/gt;h ah aha ha ha ha ha ha..........
