No one has the courage the stop me from coming to Uttar Pradesh. UP is not anyone’s property,” the AIMIM chief said.

KICKING OFF the election campaign from Kairana in Muzaffarnagar’s Shamli district on Friday, Asaduddin Owaisi asked Muslims to vote for the AIMIM as it is the “only party that belongs to the community”. He claimed that “no one in the SP cared for the blood of his Muslim brothers during the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots”.

“Kisi maai ke lal me dum hai jo mujhe Uttar Pradesh me aane se rokey. UP kisi ke baap ka nahi hai (No one has the courage the stop me from coming to Uttar Pradesh. UP is not anyone’s property),” the AIMIM chief said while addressing a huge crowd on Kandhla Road. Owaisi, displaying SP’s 2012 poll manifesto in one hand and the Indian Constitution on the other, targeted the Akhilesh government for promising 18 per cent reservation for Muslims. “…He only gave a few cycle rickshaws and laptops, which were of no use,” he alleged.

Citing “unfulfilled promises of SP” and claiming that BJP was spreading hatred, Owaisi told the gathering how they have been “used” by parties. Requesting them to give AIMIM a chance, he said: “Shamli me loota jata hai…. Dadri me Musalmano ko mar diya…. Muzaffarnagar me maaon behno ki izzat looti gayi. Magar inhone kya kia?… Paanch lakh le lo…. pandrah lakh le lo…. Musalmano ke khoon ki keemat bas itni hai?… Hume khud ki keemat pehchanani hai… Aap sab ab apni party ko vote dijiye (People were robbed in Shamli… Muslims were killed in Dadri… Mothers and sisters were raped in Muzaffarnagar. But what did these people do?… They said take Rs 5 lakh, Rs 15 lakh… Is that the value of Muslims?… We will have to know our value… Please vote for your party this time).”

While particularly targeting SP, Owaisi only referred to BSP or its chief Mayawati twice in his 46-minute speech.  “The biggest leader in India, even bigger than Mahatma Gandhi, is Baba Saheb Bheem Rao Ambedkar,” he said in his attempt to woo the Dalit community. Slamming the Centre over the recent video of a BSF jawan eating burnt food, Owaisi said: “Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who applauds surgical strikes, serves boiled pulses and uncooked chapattis to soldiers.”

“Demonetisation has led to the closure of the glass industry in Firozabad and brass industry in Moradabad. The lock industry in Aligarh is fully locked. Almost three lakh labourers of zardozi are unemployed in Lucknow. But Mr Modi is happy that he banned Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes… Notebandi ne Hindustan ka satyanaash kar diya hai (Note ban has ruined India),” said Owaisi.

Addressing the rally, AIMIM spokesperson Shadab said, “When passengers in Kanpur (train accident) died, Mulayam called off his birthday celebrations. When hundreds of our Muslim brothers died in Muzaffarnagar, ‘Mulla Mulayam’ was watching dance (performance) in Saifai. This is how they treat us.”

      I agree partially with Mr Owaisi. But it will divide minority votes which will benefit BJP. What we must look in this scenario is good/better/worse. lt;br/gt;We do not want Hatred politics. BJP and AIIM is different part of coin. We want India who satisfies all citizens.

          He should be specific . AIMIM represents Muslims of some area of Hyderabad . No other Muslims of the country want him to represent t them. He is just another opportunist who wants to convey muslim interest and get votes. History has been witness to such crooks. India is not a place for these type of crooks.

            When votes cannot be sought in the name of religion, how can there be a political party in the name of religion for a particular community? How can we expect the elected fellows will work without showing partiality to their community? Why should not EC derecognise this party?

                      He doesn't like surgical strikes. Is that because his loyalties lie with an Islamic country?lt;br/gt;On the other hand , should he not have gone with the parion

                          All the best then please vote for owaisi. That is what Modi wants complete polarisation. In the end common man will be loser. At least Bihar voters realised the plot rejected Modi Agent Owaisi.

                              UP has largest Muslim potion and if BJP comes to power, Muslims will be biggest losers. Owaisi will go back to Hyderabad and UP Muslims will suffer in the hands of BJP which will be in power. Even 1st p kid can tell Owaisi is Modi agent. Seems like Bihar Muslims are smarter than UP Muslims.

                                      IT IS a great travesty of truth that individuals like Owaisi who are rabid communalistandhave got the support of congress,tout themselves the only saviours of muslims and b hindus as communal.This they do to terrify muslims from BJPandto seek their votes.It is the story of last 70 yrsandis still continuing.Thank God now barring a few with vested interest have understood this conspiracyandtheir game is over.Owaise coming from the family of razakars who raised a banner of revoltandwanted to join hyderabad with stan ,is hatching a conspiracy to divide the country againandcreate another stan.We indians should be cautious of his gameplanandsnub him.

                                        First time Muslims voice being heard in the parliment thru owaisi, noone can deny that. It is intolerable for many bhakts.

                                            Mr. Owaisi has the guts to talk the truth and one should appreciate him. lt;br/gt;Whether there is any other political outfit which claims like this inspire of having such agendas. ?
