Owaisi booked in UP for ‘vitiating’ communal harmony

Barabanki (India), September 12, 2021 (PPI-OT):The Uttar Pradesh Police have booked All India Majlis-e-Itthehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief, Asaduddin Owaisi for allegedly vitiating communal harmony, violating Covid norms and making “indecent” remarks against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, police said.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the FIR against the AIMIM chief was registered Thursday night at Barabanki city police station after his party’s rally. Superintendent of Police of Barabanki, Yamuna Prasad said, the Hyderabad MP violated Covid guidelines – on mask and social distancing – by arranging huge crowds at the party rally at Katra Chandana Thursday.

“In his speech, the AIMIM chief made statements for vitiating communal harmony and said the 100-year-old Ram Sanehi Ghat mosque was razed by the administration and its debris was also removed. This is contrary to the fact,” the SP said.

“By this statement, Owaisi tried to vitiate communal harmony and incite feelings of a particular community. He also made indecent and baseless remarks against the PM and the Uttar Pradesh chief minister,” he said.

Owaisi was on a three-day trip to Uttar Pradesh, where his party plans to contest 100 seats in the upcoming assembly polls. Owaisi had Thursday alleged there have been efforts to turn the country into a “Hindu Rashtra” since Narendra Modi came to power seven years back.
