On the birth anniversary of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi showered praises on the 17th century Maratha king and addressed him as Kulwadi Bhushan.

“#Shivaji was not born with a silver spoon & throughout his rule, he embraced the weakest of the weak. A thousand tributes to ‘Kulwadi Bhushan’ Chhatrapati Shivaji on the occasion of #ShivajiJayanthi,”tweeted Owaisi.

He also tweeted a video of a public meeting in Maharashtra, where he mentioned the Muslims who were part of Maratha Empire and questioned the BJP leaders.

“Daulat Khan was the in charge of a part of the navy, tell me members of BJP who was Siddhi Hilal, he was the one who stood by Shivajii and fought for him. Even his son was kidnapped by Mughals but Siddhi Hilal continued his fight for Chhatrapati Shivaji . Tell me who was the Sufi whom Chhatrapati used to admire and love, his name was Yakub Baba,” said Owaisi in the video.

“People used to hold him in very high regard because he used to keep the oppressed communities close to him, he was close to the Dalits and today, the people who claim themselves as worshippers of Shivaji want to remove the Dalit atrocities act from Maharashtra,” he added.

AIMIM recently won the sarpanch elections in Aurangabad, the party also has two MLAs and one MP (Aurangabad Parliament segment) from Maharashtra. In the 2019 Maharashtra state elections, the AIMIM contested 44 seats and won from Dhule and Malegaon Central assembly segments. 

In 2014 assembly elections the party won from Byculla and Aurangabad Central but was unable to retain them in 2019.
