India is my father's country, nobody can force me to flee, says Owaisi
Hyderabad: Reacting on a challenge given by a BJP leader, AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that come and kill him as he go around without security.
“Come on, kill me. I go around without security” reacted AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday reacted to a challenge.
T. Raja Singh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Goshamahal Assembly constituency in Hyderabad, had dared Asaduddin Owaisi and his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi to keep aside their security and wrestle with him for 15 minutes.
The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief said that during the last 25 years, he never had even one security guard and goes around alone. Owaisi said, “I am ready to die for my cause and I am not scared.”
What kind of language is this. Had I used the same language for Prime Minister, you would have turned it into Hindu-Muslim, linked me to Pakistan, and branded me an agent of Lashkar-e-Taiba and a friend of Bin Laden,” said Asaduddin Owaisi.
Raja Singh, who was a member of the dissolved Assembly, had earlier threatened to cut the head of Akbaruddin Owaisi.
The MP said ganging up of Modi, BJP President Amit Shah, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Telugu Desam chief Chandrababu Naidu against him had given strong message to the people of Hyderabad.
“The pride of Hyderabad will be shown on December 7. People will reject politics of hate and threat and politics of entitlement. They will give a befitting reply.”
Referring to the allegations of the BJP and Congress leaders against him, Owaisi said they were working together in Telangana to stop AIMIM.

“Whatever I do becomes a point of discussion. All parties whose graph is going down think that by criticising Owaisi they will become relevant in Indian politics,” he said.
On Yogi’s recent statement that if the BJP comes to power, Owaisi will have to flee Hyderabad, the AIMIM leader said the BJP cannot treat Muslims as second-class citizens.
“I am not only an Indian by birth like Yogi, but I am also an Indian by choice. We rejected Jinnah’s theory and accepted India as our homeland. You can’t treat us like second-class citizens.”
