Muslims who voted for Modi are ‘Chhakkas’, if there were Muslims in power, we could have saved Yakub Memon: Asaduddin Owaisi in Nanded

Owaisi stated that the central government has the power to stop the death sentence awarded to a convict and turn it into a life-term. He lamented that Yakub Memon had to be hanged because there were not enough Muslims in the parliament.

AIMIM chief Asauddin Owaisi addressed a public meeting in Nanded, Maharashtra yesterday ahead of the assembly elections in the state. In his speech, Owaisi was seen asking for the consolidation of Muslim votes to elect Muslim people to power. He insinuated that the community needs to start voting for and electing people on the basis of religion.

Interestingly, Owaisi, who keeps hailing the Indian constitution and democracy in his parliament addresses, was urging people to vote on religious lines. Ironically, he also kept bashing other parties and the opponents of AIMIM candidates for considering religion as a basis of ticket distribution.

In reply to a Congress leader who had reportedly denied ticket to a Muslim candidate, Owaisi said that it is the Muslims who had made Rahul Gandhi win Wayanad. He stated that Rahul won Wayanad and lost Amethi because Amethi does not have a 40% Muslim population.

Owaisi stated that in 2014 general elections, 37% Hindus had voted for the Modi government. He further claimed that in 2019, 44% Hindus had voted for the same modi government. He added that a journalist had asked him about the vote shares of Muslims for the Modi government.

Owaisi claimed that the percentage of Muslims who had voted for Modi in 2014 was 6% and that percentage has remained the same in 2019 too. He further added that the number 6 is called ‘Chhakka’ in cricket, hinting at a colloquial derogatory slang for transgender persons, he stated that they dont have anything to do with the ‘Chhakkas’ who had voted for Modi.

In a speech that was replete with insinuations for Muslims to ignore everything and vote solely on the basis of religion, Owaisi further claimed that Muslims have been ignored and treated unjustly in the country. He even lamented the death sentence awarded to Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon. He claimed that Muslims were unable to save Yakub Memom from being hanged because they were not in power.

Owaisi urged Muslims to ‘forget about secularism’ because it is the responsibility of Congress party and claimed that it is the Muslims who have borne the burden of secularism in the country. Peddling victimhood over riots and outbreaks of violence where thousands, irrespective of their religion have died in the past, Owaisi insinuated that it is only the Muslims who have suffered.

Adding that the central government has the power of commuting the death sentence awarded to a convict into a life term, Owaisi lamented that because there were not enough Muslims in power, Yakub had to be hanged.

He stated that only AIMIM had spoken for Yakub and had worked to save his life.  He further added that if there were at least 40-50 Muslims in the parliament, Yakub Memon could have been saved.

Owaisi was campaigning for AIMIM’s candidates in Nanded and Parbhani yesterday. The AIMIM is contesting for 44 of the 288 seats in the Maharashtra assembly. Unlike the 2019 general elections, there is no official coalition with the Prakash Ambedkar-Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi this time.
