All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday stoked a big controversy. Addressing a public meeting in Hyderabad, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party and its president Amit Shah for his reported remarks that his party would rid Hyderabad of the AIMIM.
“Amit Shah aake Telangana mein boley Hyderabad ko majlis se mukt karoonga. Kaun sa mukt karenge aap? Kahan se mukt karenge…Aap majlis mukt nahi, Bharat se musalmaanon ko mukt karna chahte hain. Bharat se musalmanon ka alienation karna chahte hain,” said Owaisi.
“Not Majlis ‘mukt’ (free), you want to rid India of Muslims, you want to do annihilation of Muslims from India,” Owaisi said.

Muslim minorities have rights under the Constitution, he said. Owaisi, Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad, is a bitter critic of the BJP and its policies. Telangana goes to polls on December 7. (Also Read: We’ll convert you to Islam & will make you keep beard”, Asaduddin Owaisi threatens!)
He further took a dig at Telugu Desam Party, saying the “party is trying too hard to attain victory in Telangana, but they won’t succeed”.
“TDP has allied with Congress; (How will) you run Telangana by sitting in Andhra Pradesh?…(How will) Congress take decisions for Telangana by sitting in Delhi? Will the decisions be taken from Nagpur? Absolutely not,” Owaisi said.
Amit Shah had made the “MIM-mukth Hyderabad” statement Owaisi refers to last week while addressing a national conference of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha. Shah had also charged the K Chandrasekhar Rao government of being scared of the MIM and said that is why the Hyderabad Liberation Day was not observed on September 17 every year. The MIM and TRS are on friendly terms in Telangana.
