Karimnagar: AIMIM party’s floor leader in the State Assembly Akbaruddin Owaisi has said he has been in frail health and is unsure of how long he will live. “Doctors have told me they do not know how long I have,” he told at a public meeting in Karimnagar late on Tuesday night organized by his party in memory of his grandfather Abdul Wahid Owaisi.

Addressing the Jalsa Yaad-e-Fakhr-e-Millat to mark Wahid Owaisi’s 45th death anniversary, Akbaruddin said “if my voice falls silent, then do not despair. If one Akbar Owaisi is gone, God will create a 1000 more Akbar Owaisis.”

Akbaruddin who called on MIM workers to give up groupism and work together for the party and the Muslim community’s welfare, turned emotional as he narrated what he faces on his health front. “My health is poor. There are times when for two or three days I cannot eat anything and survive on water. When I travel in a vehicle, every bump causes severe pain,” he said.

Continuing in the same vein, Akbaruddin said: “Sometimes it hurts so much that no one other than a mother or a sister can even comprehend what the pain might be like. There is so much pain that I wake up at night and with tears rolling down from it, I pray and seek forgiveness from God.”

It may be recalled that Akbaruddin Owaisi was attacked by a group of persons on April 30, 2011 with knives and was also shot at. Though he recovered from the wounds he suffered in the attack after a long period of healing and recuperation, his health was never the same since then.

Akbaruddin, the AIMIM floor leader in the State Assembly, called for defeating the BJP in the upcoming municipal elections in the State even if it means some losses for his own party in the process.

In a fiery speech, that belied his acknowledgement of his very frail health, Akbaruddin said there was a time when the deputy mayor in Karimnagar was from AIMIM. “Now, there is a BJP MP from here. If people do not want AIMIM, it is alright but defeat the BJP,” he said.

In what could turn into yet another controversy for him, Akbaruddin said, “No one from RSS can touch us. There is no reason to be afraid. Remember the world tries to scare those who have fear. We have nothing to be afraid of. Why do they hate Akbaruddin Owaisi? Sau Sonar Ki Ek Lohar Ki (a single blow of a blacksmith equals a hundred of a goldsmith).”

He then said, “They (RSS) haven’t yet recovered from the ’15 minute’ blow yet.” It may be recalled that in 2013 Akbaruddin had said balance between Hindu-Muslim population would be made possible if the police was removed for 15 minutes.
