Responding to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s recent remark, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that nobody can force him to flee as India is his father’s country.
On December 2, while campaigning for Telangana Assembly elections in the state, Yogi Adityanath lashed out at AIMIM president saying that if BJP comes to power in the Telangana, Owaisi will have to flee the same way Nizam was forced to flee from Hyderabad.
Elaborating his remark, Owaisi said, “It is my religious belief that Prophet Adam when descended on the Earth from Paradise, he first came to India. Thus India is my father’s country and nobody can force me to flee.”
Owaisi also said that Yogi Adityanath did not aware of the history as Nizam did not flee from Hyderabad.
“Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan did not flee Hyderabad. He was made ‘Raj Pramukh’ and when there was war with China, he offered his gold to India,” Owaisi quoted by news agency IANS.
The MP said that he would not be scared by such threats and propaganda. “This is only Yogi’s speech but the language and mentality is of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said.
Pointing out Uttar Pradesh’s incidents, Owaisi suggested that the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister should first take care of his constituency where 150 children die of encephalitis every year.
Meanwhile, Asaduddin Owaisi’s younger brother Akbaruddin Owaisi has also reacted strongly to Adityanath’s threat, saying that nobody can force them to flee.
“We are not the one who will flee. Our 1,000 generations will live here,” Akbaruddin Owaisi said at a public meeting on Sunday night.
