Guwahati News Desk: An FIR has been launched against the All India Majlis-e-Itthehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi by the Uttar Pradesh Police for allegedly vitiating communal harmony, violating Covid norms and making“indecent” remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The FIR against the AIMIM chief was registered Thursday night at Barabanki city police station after his party’s rally.
Regarding the FIR, the Superintendent of Police, Barabanki, Yamuna Prasad, informed that the IPC sections 153A (promoting enmity on ground of religion, race etc.), 188 (disregarding order of a public servant), 269 (negligent act likely to spread disease dangerous to life), 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease) and the Epidemic Act have been slapped against him.
The SP said,“In his speech, the AIMIM chief made statements for vitiating communal harmony and said the 100-year-old Ram Sanehi Ghat mosque was razed by the administration and its debris was also removed. This is contrary to the fact.”
He added, “By this statement, Owaisi tried to vitiate communal harmony and incite feelings of a particular community. He also made indecent and baseless remarks against the PM and the Uttar Pradesh chief minister.”
The SP further said that the Hyderabad MP violated several Covid guidelines, on mask and social distancing, by arranging huge crowds at the party rally at Katra Chandana Thursday.
Regarding PM Modi, Owaisi alleged that there have been efforts to turn the country into a “Hindu Rashtra” since he came to power seven years back.
Further referring to the law against instant triple talaq, Owaisi also mentioned the “plight” of Hindu women, while directing a personal barb at Modi.
Moreover, criticising the triple talaq law, Owaisi said, “BJP leaders talk about injustice against Muslim women subject to talaq but remain mum on the issue of the plight of Hindu women discarded by their men.”
