All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi made some shocking statements during a speech on Monday.The younger Owaisi, who's known for his provocative speeches alleged that Parliament and assemblies pass laws against Muslims.
Akbaruddin, floor leader of AIMIM in the Telangana assembly, also used offensive language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his speech.
"People of VHP and Bajrang Dal, Narendra Modi listen: This country is not your father's property," he said. "This country belongs to me as much as it belongs to you," he further added.
He called for unity of Muslims and said his brother Asaduddin Owaisi, MP and National President of AIMIM, can win enough votes to increase the presence of Muslims in Parliament, and consequently ensure laws are made that can give them their rights.
“The laws that destroy Muslims are not made on roads, marketplaces or grounds but in Parliament, Assemblies and municipalities. If Muslims want and if they all come together then we will not need anybody’s mercy or help or actions. Our brother himself with his vote can win India’s 50 Parliament seats,” Owaisi said in a video footage.
The controversial leader had in the past spent 40 days in jail in a case registered against him for hate speech at an election rally.
