New Delhi, August 13: During the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi spoke about the role of Muslims in India’s independence and targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Owaisi said, ‘Muslims who contributed to the country’s freedom should also remember the Prime Minister. Along with this, he also took a swipe at Godse and said that the land for freedom was prepared by our freedom fighters and not by Godse.
Owaisi said that the first inmate of Kala Pani was Hyderabadi-Fazal-e-Haq Khairabadi. I ask the Muslim haters – do you know where Malta is? Sheikh ul Hind Mahmud ul Hasan was arrested from Mecca. He was imprisoned in Malta for three years. Rani of Jhansi is remembered but do you know that Khuda Bakhsh (Army Incharge) was martyred while serving her.
Owaisi said that a woman who always stayed with the queen of Jhansi and was martyred in the battle of Kota was named Manjar. He was also a Muslim. He further said, ‘those who talk about the tricolor. Will they also talk about what happened on December 6 and what happened in August last year? Muslims are not responsible for the partition.
Taking a dig at Godse, Owaisi asked, Who was Bhatnia Ansari? He used to cook for Mahatma Gandhi. The British asked them to poison Mahatma Gandhi’s food. But he came running and asked Gandhi not to eat. But, you see who were the people who shot Mahatma Gandhi? He further said, ‘The first journalist to be martyred for the freedom of India was Muhammad Maulvi Bakar, he was murdered by the British.
He said that Umar Subhani had given a blank check to Bapu. Allah Bakhsh, who held the Azad Conference in Delhi, abolished the two-nation theory. His government was removed and Savarkar’s Mahasabha and Jinnah’s Muslim League formed the government. Further challenging Owaisi said- ‘I challenge you to face me for 10 minutes, you will run away. Godse did not build the foundation of freedom, all freedom fighters have.
Owsi said that, to those who are asking Muslims to show loyalty, I will tell them that those who are bald will wear the best hat in the world. Then ask others to wear it. If you are proud to be Indian then you should also be proud of your past.
