Owaisi on Modi’s ‘Jai Bajrangbali’ Call: ‘Ok If I Asked to Raise Takbir?’

NEW DELHI – All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar for allegedly seeking votes on the basis of majority religion in the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections.

Owaisi was referring to the prime minister’s request to vote in the name of Lord Hanuman and DK Shivakumar’s assurance to prioritise the construction of Lord Hanuman temples in various parts of the state.

“Will Congress promise reconstruction of demolished dargah in Hubli? It has surrendered on its ideological battle with BJP. Will Modi be ok if I asked people to raise TAKBIR? The skies would fall,” Owaisi said in a tweet.

Prime Minister Modi on Wednesday urged the people of Karnataka to punish those indulging in abuse, while casting their vote in polling booths on May 10. Addressing a public meeting here in Uttara Kannada district, he said: “Will anyone in Karnataka accept this abuse culture? Will anyone like abusing someone? Does anyone like even a small man being abused? Will Karnataka forgive those abusing?”

“What will you (people) do this time? Will you punish them? Will you punish the abusers?… When you press the button in the polling booth, punish by saying ‘Jai Bajrangbali’…,” he added.

Addressing a gathering in Katnataka’s Kolar, Owaisi retorted, “The prime minister asked to raise slogans of Bajrangbali while casting vote, what secularism is this? Today, the Karnataka state president of Congress said that if Congress comes to power, they will build more Hanuman temples.”
