Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) president, Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said that those who raise their voice against the Bharaitiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) face threats even as he requested the Telangana government to provide security to professor Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd.

The Hyderabad parliamentarian was addressing media persons at party headquarters in Darussalaam where he expressed solidarity with Kancha Ilaiah and the murdered journalist Gauri Lankesh. “With authenticity I am saying that there is indeed a threat to Kancha Ilaiah. There is in fact a threat to all those who speak and write against the BJP and RSS. 

Kancha Ilaiah is an important intellect of this age. His contributions to the Dalit community and Ambedkaries is huge,“ he said adding that threats which the Dalit ideologue received should be investigated. 
Lashing out at abusive twitter handles which the PM's handle follows, he said, “You see, after Gauri Lankesh's murder, the man who is followed by the Prime Minister (on twitter) has said nasty things. These people cannot put their points across in an intellectual debate, this is why the beast in them manifests in their tweets or statements.“Owaisi criticised Modi for his comment that he had goosebumps when he heard Vande Mataram.

“Farmers are committing suicide and he doesn't get goosebumps. People are being killed in the name of beef and yet there are no goosebumps. There were 100 people who died because of demonetisation, there are still no goosebumps,“ Owaisi said.
