Hyderabad: The BJP government at the Centre was meting out 'selective punishment' to Muslims in India, and was destroying the rule of law, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi said on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters here, Owaisi, answering questions on the demolition of houses in Uttar Pradesh of those critical of that state's Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, said Adityanath "has become a 'super chief justice' and is running his own courts ordering demolition of houses."

Owaisi said what was happening in Uttar Pradesh and elsewhere was "clear evidence of the hatred" the BJP has towards Muslims. "Kids are being beaten up, shot at as happened in Jharkhand where one of the two who were killed in police firing had six bullet wounds," Owaisi said.

“If the government believes someone has broken the law, then it can file cases, prove guilt in the courts and have the guilty punished, but not this,” he


Referring to the demolition of student activist Afreen Fatima's house, Owaisi said it belonged to her mother, and the authorities had lied that a notice was previously issued for the demolition. "If Afreen Fatima's house can be demolished, why not that of Teni Mishra, whose son Ashish Mishra mowed down five people with his vehicle," Owaisi asked.

Owaisi also ridiculed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's promise that his government would fill up 10 lakh vacancies in the next two years. “Actually, there are 55 lakh vacancies in the Central government. These need to be filled up. And then there are the 2 crore jobs a year Modi promised eight years ago. So another 16 crore jobs must be filled," he said.

The job announcement was for political gains with an eye on Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh elections coming up and then the national elections, he said.

Indian Muslims must learn to organize themselves urgently in every state, and should have their advocates who can defend them according to the law. Clearly, BJP as a political wing of RSS, is trying to make India a Hindu racist, fascist, prejudice and hateful state for the hindus only while committing all kinds of hatred, injustice and crimes against innocent Muslims. It looks like many RSS members have taken up jobs in police departments everywhere in India and they are having an organized hateful campaign against Muslims. They are truly acting like the enemies of Islam and Muslims. We must learn to defend ourselves against such criminals who have no real faith and morality. May Allah swt give Muslims strength, guidance, love, care, unity and power to live with dignity and prosperity-Allahummah Aameen Yaa Rabbul Aalameen.
