All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, who has several times in the past exhibited his malevolence against Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), once again, reacting to RSS chief Mohan Bhagat’s last week’s comment said Bharat is “not a Hindu Rashtra” and they will also not let it become so.
This comment came after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat last week said the Sangh is firm on its vision that “Bharat is a Hindu Rashtra”.
हम हिंदुओं का देश हैं। हम हिंदू राष्ट्र हैं। हिंदू किसी पूजा का नाम नहीं, किसी भाषा का नाम नहीं, किसी प्रांत प्रदेश का नाम नहीं। हिंदू एक संस्कृति का नाम है। जो भारत में रहने वाली सबकी सांस्कृतिक विरासत है।

Addressing an election rally on Monday night in Kalyan town of Maharashtra’s Thane district for party candidate Aiaz Moulavi, Owaisi said a section of society wants to paint the entire country in one colour, but “we see Hindustan in multiple colours, it is the beauty of Hindustan”. “Bharat is not a Hindu Rashtra, and Inshallah, we will not allow it to become so,” he said.
Alleging that the Shiv Sena was against Muslims, he said: “Change your spectacles and you will see the green colour in the national flag also.” He said Bharat is unique because of its secularism and pluralism. There is no other country in the world as Bharat and “we are proud of it”.
“I want to tell those in the RSS that we are not living here on your sympathy. If you want to measure the index of my happiness or sorrow, you and we should see what the Constitution has given to us,” Owaisi said.
Owaisi went on to also say that the AIMIM has established itself in Aurangabad because of its own efforts. “We will spread to other parts of the state also. You cannot stop us,” he said.
“NDA government was patting its own back by banning the practice of triple talaq, but was not aware of the woes of members of the Muslim community, exclaimed the AIMIM chief claiming that centre should provide the members of the minority community with the reservation for their progress and development.
Owaisi animosity for Hindu’s is not new. Not just Hindu Rashtra, Recently, in a public rally in Nanded, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi mocked the Hindu traditional ritual of using lemon and chilli for auspiciousness and warding off bad luck. Owaisi alluded that Hindus waste the lemons by crushing them whereas Muslims utilise them by offering lemon juice to others and using chillies in their meat dishes.
In fact, such deep is the hatred that Owaisi has also 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.
More so, Asaduddin Owaisi’s brother Akbaruddin Owaisi had earlier threatened to kill the Hindus and balance the population ratio if police forces are removed for 15 minutes.
