Muqtedar Khan on Asaduddin Owaisi: Prof. Professor in the Department of International Relations and Founder Director of Islamic Studies Program at Delaware University in America. Muktedar Khan has said that AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi raises the voice of Muslims in Indian politics. During a discussion on a media platform, he said that Owaisi’s voice is completely different from Jamaat-e-Islami. Jamanat-e-Islami wanted to create an Islamic State, but now it has changed its aim. It was also banned several times.
Professor Muktdar Khan said that Asaduddin Owaisi believes that the rights given to Muslims in the constitution are ending in vote bank politics.
Owaisi unites the Muslim vote?
Professor Muktdar Khan, Founding Director of Islamic Studies Program at Delaware University, America, said during a conversation with journalist Shakeel Chowdhary that Asaduddin Owaisi believes that the voice of Muslims is being drowned in vote bank politics. Mukdar Khan said that Muslim votes get divided between Congress and Owaisi’s party. Even in the elections held in UP, the opposition parties did not make any special announcement for the Muslims. Where will the Muslim vote go? Owaisi tried to unite the Muslim vote.
Professor Muktdar Khan further said that BJP keeps hold on the vote bank of Hindus. In recent times, BJP is trying to woo the Pasmanda Muslim community in a very smart way. Congress used Muslims as vote bank. Some Muslims accuse Owaisi of being the B team of BJP. Owaisi’s party has a strong hold on the backward, fearful and uneducated among Muslims.
Criticism of Akbaruddin Owaisi
Professor Muktdar Khan also criticized Asaduddin Owaisi’s brother Akbaruddin Owaisi a lot. Long time ago, on the statement of Akbaruddin Owaisi that we are 25 crores, you are 100 crores. Remove the police for 15 minutes and then see who is stronger. On the question asked about many controversial statements of Akbaruddin Owaisi, Muktdar Khan said that he has given stupid and illiterate statements many times. A
‘It is not right to insult other religion’
Professor Muqtedar Khan further said that Akbaruddin Owaisi hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus many times. Many Muslim leaders violate the rules of their religion. Akbaruddin Owaisi is not the problem. The problem is hundreds of people like him who vote for him. It is clearly written in Quran that no other religion should be insulted. He also accused BJP leaders of making controversial statements against Muslims.
