All-India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that the forces behind the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi are trying to instill fear in the minds of countrymen.

At a public meeting held in Hyderabad, Owaisi said that an atmosphere of fear is being instilled in the country by people who were behind the forces who shot at Mahatma Gandhi.These people sided with the British and did not fight for the independence of the country,” he said.

Owaisi was speaking at the National Integration meet organised by the Jamiat Ulema-e Hind (Maulana Arshad Madani Group) in the city.

Making a strong pitch for Dalit-Muslim unity, Owaisi said that he believes that both the communities could come together.

“Dalits are being persecuted. They are being beaten. Crimes against them have increased by 66 per cent in the country. On an average, a Dalit gets beaten every 15 minutes. We have to work with our Dalit brothers. They have been persecuted for many years. Today, Dalits are looking at Muslims with some expectation. Will the two persecuted communities come together? I believe we can,” Owaisi said.

Owaisi alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a false promise to protect the interests of Muslim women.
