New Delhi: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday launched a scathing attack at the Narendra Modi-led Central government asking if the ruling dispensation is only of one religion or is it of everyone. Speaking in Lok Sabha, the Hyderabad MP alleged that attempts are being made to intimidate the Muslim community. He also asked whether the consecration ceremony at Ayodhya’s Ram Temple held on January 22 was a “triumph” of one religion over the other.
Participating in the debate on “the construction of historic Shri Ram Temple and Pran Pratishtha of Shri Ramlalla” in Lok Sabha, Owaisi said, “I want to ask if Modi government is the government of a particular community, religion or the government of the entire country? Does Centre have a religion? I believe that this country does not have a religion. Through January 22 (when Ram Temple’s consecration ceremony was held), does this government want to give a message that one religion triumphed over the other?”
“What message do you give to the 17 crore Muslims in the country?…Am I a spokesperson of Babar, Jinnah or Aurangzeb?…I respect Lord Ram but I hate Nathuram Godse because he killed the person whose last words were ‘Hey Ram’…,” he further said.
