Islamists join AIMIM supporters in trending ‘#IWantMyMasjidBack’ and #IndiaStandsWithOwaisi on Twitter

Assaduddin Owaisi is perpetually whining over the Supreme Court's decision to hand over the disputed site to Hindu litigants for building a grand Ram Temple

Reeling under tremendous stress following the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Ram Janmabhoomi case, a resentful Owaisi yesterday took to Twitter to express his disapproval with the verdict. Owaisi tweeted “I want my masjid back”, expressing his discontent with the top court’s verdict granting the contentious land to the Hindu parties for building a Ram Temple over it.

Soon after Owaisi attempted to flare up communal passions, a raft of Islamists on Twitter, inspired by his defiance started sharing their staunch objection to the apex court’s verdict. With total disregard to the authority of Supreme Court, Islamists on Twitter started trending “#IWantMyMasjidBack”.

One Twitter user, Ali Sohrab, who has often normalised bigotry on his Twitter page rued that the Supreme Court on November 9, 2019, “illegally” ordered to build a Ram Temple on the disputed land on the directions of “Terrorist organisation” RSS with the hashtag “IWantMyMasjidBack”.

Mirroring Owaisi’s insubordination of the top court, Sohrab also tweeted that they will neither leave Aksha mosque, nor the Babri masjid.

Another resenting Muslim, Rizwan Maniyar, asserted that Owaisi is the voice of 200 million Indian Muslims who are aggrieved with the court’s decision and exhorted them to trend “#IWantMyMasjidBack” and stand in solidarity with Owaisi.

One Twitter user Sultan Khan, with obvious deficiency in historical knowledge, cited the distorted provenance of the dispute, stating that the Babri masjid was built in 1528, desecrated in 1949 and demolished in 1992, while conveniently hiding the Archaeological Survey of India’s findings that a grand temple existed beneath the mosque and the foundations of the mosque were built from the ruins of that temple.

There were several other tweets that indicated that AIMIM and Owaisi supporters were trending this hashtag, joined by other Muslims on Twitter.

Incidentally, another hashtag that started trending on Twitter was #IndiaStandsWithOwaisi.

There were some who wanted to divisive Owaisi to be awarded with “some prestigious award” for his respect towards the constitution ironically after he rejected the Supreme Court verdict.

These elements were also joined by Islamists who ran a tirade against Hindus.

It is indeed a worrying trend that someone as radical as Owaisi finds mass support among a section of Indian Muslims. Owaisi had in the past threatened Kamlesh Tiwari who was later brutally murdered by Islamists. He had said, “By speaking against Rasalullah, you have invited your own doom”, while threatening Kamlesh with consequences.

In the video, Owaisi could be heard saying whoever dares to speak anything against Rasalullah is haram as per Quran. “Woh zaalim, woh kutta jo Uttar Pradesh mein baith kar Allah ki shaan mein gustakhi kiya, yaad rakh. Tu aaj jail main hai magar duniya tere liye chuhe ki bil ki tarah ban jayegi. (That dog who is sitting in Uttar Pradesh and speaking such things against the Allah, remember. You are safe in jail but the world will become a rat’s hole for you),” Owaisi said.

Owaisi had also displayed his anti-Hindu hate when he had mocked rituals by Hindus in one of his speeches. It is worthy to note here that Owaisi is the brother of Akbaruddin Owaisi who had in 2012 threatened Hindus while saying that if Police is removed for 15-minutes, he would show Hindus their place. He had repeated this same threat in 2019 as well.

Amidst the lament from begrudging Muslims on Twitter demanding their masjid back, it is notable to mention that the Sunni Waqf Board, one of the litigants in the Ram Temple-Babri Masjid dispute case has decided not to challenge the court’s verdict.

Ever since the court pronounced the verdict in the case, assorted liberals and Owaisi have been unceasingly experiencing a prolonged meltdown. Owaisi had blasted off earlier saying that he rejects the court’s judgment and raised aspersions about the Supreme Court by stating, “Supreme Court is Supreme but not infallible”.
