AIMIM not scared of any political party, says Asaduddin Owaisi | Hyderabad News, the vie

HYDERABAD: Taking a dig at Union home minister Amit Shah’s remarks against his party, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday said even AIMIM was not scared of any party. “We do not fear anyone except Allah,” he said.
“Neither the BJP, TRS nor Congress can live without naming AIMIM in their meetings. Why is the Union home minister talking about fear when their party is ruling at the Centre. Instead, it is the minorities who should be given confidence. There should be no place for fear in a democracy,” he said.
Responding to reporters’ queries on Shah and KTR’s comments, Owaisi said it looked like the stomach of BJP and Congress leaders would get upset if they do not talk about the AIMIM. “They seem to be abusing AIMIM even in their dreams. They should first decide who is their political opponent,” he said. He said Shah seemed to have got hurt when BJP lost two wards in the GHMC polls despite his visit to the Old City. “BJP’s performance in GHMC was sort of a pyrrhic victory. It lost its sitting graduates MLC seat and lost its deposit in Nagarjuna Sagar bypoll. People of Telangana will decide their fate in 2023 too,” Owaisi said, taking potshots at Shah’s claims that the BJP will come to power in 2023 in Telangana.
“If AIMIM is polarising the votes, our corporator Sunnam Rajmohan would not have won four elections in the Old City, he said. Owaisi asked party MLCs, MLAs, corporators and other leaders to actively involve themselves in voter enrolment in all assembly constituencies in Greater Hyderabad and not just seven represented by the AIMIM. “Let’s see what happens in 2023,” he said.
AIMIM chief said PM Narendra Modi should take note of mob lynching as radicalisation and condemn them. “I agree with Modi that radicalisation anywhere is a threat to rule of law everywhere. Who is responsible for radicalisation of mindset in India against Muslims. The chief minister of a BJPruled state calls a Muslim leader ‘abba jaan’ and another farmer leader terms them ‘chacha jaan’. s this not radicalisation,” he wondered.
