Owaisi questioned the difference in gestures by the UP government as it showered petals on Kanwariyas, Ashwini Kumar Choubey slammed him by terming Muslims as ‘terrorists’.
Mumbai: AIMIM Chief Asaddudin Owaisi on Wednesday questioned the UP government for showering petals on the Kanwar Yatris. He criticized the UP government for treating the communities differently and creating religious discrimination.
He raised a question on the gesture of the government by saying, “I have no objection with the gesture of the UP government for the Yatris. The UP government is using tax payers money to shower flower petals on kanwariyas and policemen are massaging the foot of the pilgrims, but why is the difference there, same treatment is not given to the Muslims.”
Owaisi further questioned why meat shops had to close during the Kanwar Yatra, in a democratic nation.
“BJP-led UP government showering flower petals on Kanwariyas using public money. We want them to treat everyone equally. They don’t shower flowers on us (Muslims) instead, they bulldoze our houses.Treat everybody equally, what happened to ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vishwas’?”, he said
On Tuesday, he took to twitter and compared the ruckus that Muslims recently faced. In his tweet he mentioned that Muslims had to face bullets, lynching and bulldozing of their houses and many more things.
यह 'रेवड़ी कल्चर' नहीं है?
मुसलमान, खुली जगह पर चंद मिनट के लिए के नमाज़ भी अदा करे तो “बवाल” हो जाता है। मुसलमानों को सिर्फ मुसलमान होने की वजह से पुलिस की गोलियों, हिरासती तशद्दुद, NSA, UAPA, लिंचिंग, बुल्डोज़र और तोड़-फोड़ का सामना करना पड़ रहा है। 2/n

He further questioned the distinction. “Why hate one and love the other? Why divert traffic for one religion and bulldoze for another?”, AIMIM chief added.
Meanwhile, BJP MP Ashwini Kumar Choubey has attacked Owaisi for criticizing the Yogi government’s decision to shower the kanwariyas with petals and termed the muslim community as terrorists. “If not on kanwariyas then should one shower flowers on terrorists?” Choubey questioned.
