owaisi slammed Ajit Doval over bigotry remark
Owaisi did not comment on whether PFI should be banned or not, he slammed the NSA, urging him to reveal the reason behind religious bigotry.

Mumbai: AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday targeted Ajit Doval, the National Security Advisor by saying that Ajit Should tell everyone who is spreading religious bigotry in the nation. As Doval on Saturday called on leaders of various faiths to counter radical forces trying to create hostility in the name of religion and ideology, which is hurting the country and having international repercussions.

At a conference held¬†against¬†the backdrop of a¬†series¬†of¬†episodes of religious discord in the country he said, “Some people try to create animosity in the name of religion that adversely affects the entire country and also has ramifications internationally.”

Owaisi told the reporters in Jaipur that, we¬†expected the¬†NSA¬†to¬†tell everyone who¬†these “certain elements”¬†are¬†that propagate¬†bigotry. Why is he¬†chopping the¬†words? He should¬†say. However,¬†Mr.¬†Owaisi did not¬†respond to the¬†question¬†of¬†whether PFI should be banned in the country.

The PFI is a radical Islamic outfit, that has been on the radar of security agencies over its suspected role in several incidents of riots in the country. PFI was formed after the RSS to protect the Muslims and counter the radicalized RSS that completely believes in Hindutva.

When asked¬†if¬†he¬†was seen as¬†the¬†country’s hardliner, the AIMIM chief quipped and said, “In¬†India¬†we are the only hardliners and¬†everyone is¬†pure.”¬†Mr.¬†Owaisi was in Jaipur to¬†attend¬†an¬†event.

Speaking about the political and economic crisis in Sri Lanka, he said the situation arose when the Sri Lankan government hid unemployment and rising prices from the people of the country.
‚ÄúData must¬†be¬†disclosed.¬†We expect such a situation not¬†to happen¬†in¬†India,‚Ä̬†he¬†said.

He also claimed that the executive branch was trying to weaken the legislature in parliament, causing the debates to decline. During the monsoon session, 14 bills were presented in parliament and passed within minutes. Sessions of Parliament are held 60-65 days a year, so how public issues will be raised in such a case, he added.
