Should Muslims Vote Only For Muslims?

Well, that is what Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) floor leader in the Assembly Akbaruddin Owaisi feels.

He said the other day that all the political parties were using the Muslims only as a vote bank but had not solved their issues.

So, the Muslims should vote only for the Muslim candidates in the elections, since only they could represent the problems of the community.

Akbaruddin also alleged that the Parliament and state assemblies pass laws against Muslims.

Naturally, the BJP leaders took objection to his remarks.

“This shows his distrust in the machinery of Indian democracy. Such anti-national remarks are an abject stunt at inciting communal clashes for political leverage,” BJP floor leader G Kishan Reddy said.

BJP spokesman Krishna Sagar Rao demanded that the State government arrest the Majlis leader and book a suo moto case against him, as the statements would only divide the society on communal lines.

The BJP leader also lashed at the TRS government by stating that it was an opportunist government. He said that the TRS was yet to file a charge sheet against the MIM MLA on his hate speech.  

Rao said the BJP would meet Election Commission of India and lodge complaint against the speeches of MIM leader. He said the MIM president should explain what kind of secularism his party followed.

With several court cases pending against him, this is not his first time making derogatory comments and spreading hate speeches.

By demeaning the authenticity of the legislature in this country a privilege motion should be passed against him in the Telangana state assembly, the BJP leaders said.
