Watch: BJP MP Parvesh Verma Makes Controversial Statement Again, Asks To Boycott A “Community”

Owaisi said, “The truth is that BJP has started a war against Muslims”

New Delhi: BJP MP Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma addressing the crowd at a VHP event asked to boycott a community. His remarks were seemingly aimed at Muslims. Taking to Twitter AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi slammed BJP and said, BJP has now started a war against Muslims.

Owaisi tweeted, “BJP-RSS MP is taking an oath to boycott Muslims in an open meeting in the capital of the country. RSS’s Mohan had said that false fear is being spread among Muslims. The truth is that BJP has started a war against Muslims. Delhi CM and @amitshah are silent.”

He further added, “Untouchability was abolished under Article 17 of the Constitution. And its conduct in any form was prohibited. If the ruling party MP can do this in the capital of the country, then what is the value of the Constitution?”

At the event, Verma asked his supporters to repeat certain pledges after him, which the people did at the open venue amid rain. Many in the audience are seen with umbrellas.

“They keep opening handcarts, you don’t need to buy vegetables from them. They open fish-meat shops. We should tell the MCD [municipal corporation] to close them if they don’t have a license,” Verma said.

“Wherever you see them if you want to fix their head, if you want to set them straight, then the only cure is total boycott. Raise your hand if you agree,” the BJP MP said and gestured towards the crowd. All of them raised their hands.

“Say after me, we will boycott them,” he said. The people repeated after him. “We will not buy anything from their shops. We will not give them any work,” Verma said. This, too, drew a loud “yes-we-will” response.

Many took to Twitter and tagged  Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister S Jaishankar as they objected to the remarks made by Verma.

Congress spokesperson Dr. Shama Mohamed tweeted, “BJP MP Parvesh Verma orders the people of Delhi to financial boycott Muslims. Will @DelhiPolice act against this man for inciting hatred amongst communities? Does PM Modi condone this speech? Is this what BJP meant by Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas! Speak up @narendramodi”
