As PM, Modi will be best remembered for mob-lynchings: Owais
Hyderabad: All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be best remembered for mob-lynching incidents during his tenure.
Referring to reports of a man being thrashed by a mob for allegedly selling beef in Assam, Owaisi said ...These incidents will haunt Modi in his entire life that being a Prime Minister he was unable to stop such incidents. He described the reported incident as 'horrible' and the 68-year old man was beaten because he was selling beef. "...he has been in the trade for the past 35 years. Then he is forced to eat pork. These 'bafoons'...they are not fit to be called human beings...they are animals", the Hyderabad Lok Sabha member charged during a 'Meet The Press' here.
"Mr Narendra Modi's legacy...the top most thing he would be remembered for is during his tenure as Prime Minister of this great country and it is because of him being in power mob-lynching happened and such incidents increased", he said. He claimed the people who indulged in mob-lynchings were all Modi's supporters, and "they have got emboldened because they know that they have a Prime Minister who supports their ideology".
"Love jihad', 'ghar-wapsi', mob-lynching and 'cow' happened after Modi became Prime Minister in 2014", Owaisi, who is seeking re-elecction from Hyderabad in the April 11 first phase Lok Sabha elections, alleged.
