On Tuesday, a shoe was thrown at AIMIM chief and MP Asaduddin Owaisi’s meeting at Nagpada junction, which was stopped for a certain time. The condition brought back to normal quickly as police and MIM volunteers tempered the crowd that started scattering after the incident. At Nagpada police station, a case was registered against unidentified persons.
Instigating an aggressive attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Owaisi stated that he was not scared to death. The AIMIM chief also attacked RSS and said that the organization wants to make ‘Muslim Mukt Bharat’. Addressing the parents, Owaisi said that they must make ready Muslim youngsters to face challenges. Criticizing the triple talaq bill, he said that the bill is unfair to women and if it becomes a law it will exploit women. The chief added that Muslim men struggle to keep one wife and still they are labeled as having four wives. “People ask me how many wives I have. I tell them I have just one who stays at home,” he said.
“Will triple talaq stop after the law is brought in? There have been 8 rapes in 6 days in Haryana. Yet Modi has not spoken about it. Between 2005-2015 there were 88,467 dowry deaths in India, 22 women die daily due to dowry. A law is not the answer,” Owaisi said. He advised that the Modi government allocate Rs 2,000 crore for rehabilitation of women divorced under triple talaq. Defining Modi’s concern for women an eyewash, Owaisi said, “Why didn’t you (BJP) give even one ticket to a Muslim woman in the recent Gujarat state elections? Why are there just gour Muslim legislators of BJP across the country?”
