AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi criticizes both Congress and BJP fronts during Lok Sabha’s no-confidence motion debate, accusing them of neglecting Muslims’ concerns and playing politics over tragedies.
In a fiery speech during the Lok Sabha’s no-confidence motion debate, AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi took on both the Congress-led opposition and the BJP-led ruling front, accusing them of neglecting Muslims’ plight.
Silent on Oppression: Owaisi’s Accusation
Owaisi chastised both fronts, equating the Congress-led opposition to a “dukandar” (shopkeeper) and the BJP-led ruling front to a “chowkidar” (watchman). He claimed that when Muslims face oppression, neither group speaks up, highlighting their alleged support for the UAPA (amendment) law brought forth by Home Minister Amit Shah.
Allegations of Politics Over Tragedy
The AIMIM MP pointed out the tragic case of an 83-year-old man who died due to a lack of a sipper under the UAPA law. He criticized both fronts for playing politics over such tragedies and called for action against injustice.
Questioning Government’s Response to Atrocities
Owaisi questioned the government’s handling of various incidents, including the shooting of Muslim passengers by an RPF constable and the demolition of buildings in Nuh without due process. He accused the government of creating an atmosphere of hate against Muslims and called for accountability.
Appeal for Conscience and Accountability
The MP criticized the chief ministers of Manipur and Haryana for their actions and questioned their conscience. He highlighted the denial of education to Muslim children and demanded justice for cases like Bilkis Bano’s.
Using Slogans and Policies for Political Gain
Owaisi criticized the BJP’s use of slogans like “Quit India” and referred to the Uniform Civil Code as a dictatorial formula. He demanded answers on issues like bringing back Khulbushan Yadav and respecting the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act of 1991.
In his impassioned speech, Owaisi highlighted various concerns and called for greater accountability and justice in addressing the issues faced by minorities.
