Now where are the people who always say that Hindus and India are intolerant. Will they dare to speak about statements of Muslim MP hurting sentiments of Hindus ? Is it not intolerance or it is not because a Muslim MP is hurting sentiments of majority ? Also, now it is time for Hindus to unite and oust such Hindu-haters in forthcoming elections ! – Editor, HJS website
Hyderabad : The politics over beef is not over yet. Member of Parliament from Hyderabad Asaduddin Owaisi today raked up the issue while addressing a public gathering ahead of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation election.
The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief asked people to vote for his party’s candidates if they want to continue eating beef.
“If MIM is defeated in the election, I am telling you – the members of minority community will have to forget about eating beef,” Owaisi said.
He also accused the BJP-led government in Maharashtra of targeting poor Muslims and Dalits through its decision to ban beef.
“They have banned beef in Maharashtra. But since Modi took over as Prime Minister, the quantity of beef exported from India has gone up. And if my sources are right, beef export has gone up by 17 per cent. What is Modi doing about it,” Owaisi had said after the Maharashtra government banned beef in March, 2015.
Owaisi has been using the beef ban issue during his election campaign speeches in Hyderabad. He’s also been mimicking Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing people.
The leader has often been seen using the word “mitro” (friends) similar to Modi whenever he starts his speech. “Mitro may work anywhere but not in Hyderabad, ‘bada’ (beef) alone will work in Hyderabad,” Owaisi had said last week while addressing a rally.
