TDN World Desk: AIMIM President slammed BJP and it’s parent organisation RSS for increasing hatred in the country.
Reacting to the recent mob lynching of a 24-year-old Jharkhand youth Tabrez Hasan, Owaisi said,
” These kind of cases of mob lynching will never stop because BJP, RSS and other such kind of organisations have created a sense of hatred for Muslims in this country. Whoever (Muslim) they see, they see him as terrorist or a cow slaughter or anti-national. So, they have successfully created this kind of mindset. We are continuously asking them to stop these kinds of incidents but they always say that Muslims need to be deradicalized.”
Ansari was assaulted on June 18 violently by a frenzied mob for hours in suspicion of theft. The mob also forced him to chant “Jai Shri Ram” and ” Jai Hanuman”. Tabrez died two days later succumbing to his injuries.
The video of Tabarez being thrashed and forced to chant Jai Shri Ram has widely been circulated. Oppositions party leaders like Owaisi, Mehbooba Mufti, Gulam Nabi Azad expressed their concern for such hate-crime that mostly targets the Muslims.
The opposition Congress said it had formed a seven-member team to probe the incident. “We demand Rs 25 lakh compensation for the family of the victim and a job for his wife,” a state Congress leader said.
