New Delhi: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi gave a fitting and stern reply to Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, amid his lecture to India over the education of girls. They failed to provide security to their girls and are now lecturing India, said Owaisi.
Addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh Owaisi said that Pakistan should mind its own business. Owaisi said that the country which could not protect Malala, should not lecture on girls’ education here.
“Pakistan should not lecture India on girl education. Malala was shot there. They failed to provide security to their girls and are now lecturing India,” he said.
These remarks by Owaisi come after Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi leveled that India is violating Muslim girl’s human rights by depriving them of education.
“Depriving Muslim girls of an education is a grave violation of fundamental human rights. To deny anyone this fundamental right & terrorise them for wearing a hijab is absolutely oppressive,” Shah Mahmood Qureshi said in a tweet.
“World must realise this is part of Indian state plan of ghettoisation of Muslims,” Qureshi added.
In a reply to the Pakistani FM, Owaisi said that the Karnataka hijab row was India’s internal issue and others should not interfere. “People of Pakistan should worry about their internal conflicts, no need to interfere in our issues,” he said.
Earlier in the day, Owaisi tweeted that he had spoken to Muskan, the girl who was heckled by a mob for wearing a burqa to college in Karnataka on Tuesday. He said that he spoke to the girl and her family.
“Prayed for her to remain steadfast in her commitment to education while also exercising her freedom of religion & choice. I conveyed that her act of fearlessness has become a source of courage for us all,” Owaisi said.
