Akbaruddin Owaisi gets bail in both cases, to be released Saturday


Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh assembly on Saturday witnessed a war of words between Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Akbaruddin Owaisi when the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader speaking for the first time after sparking outrage by his alleged ‘hate speech' accused the Congress government in the state of being communal and intolerant towards opposition.


The Chief Minister however ruled out the allegations and said neither he nor the state government had any personal grudge against them, and he never used police for any political vendetta.    


Speaking for the first time after getting bail in a hate speech case registered against him , Akbaruddin Owais said AIMIM leaders especially Owaisi brothers became a soft target after they decided to withdraw support to the Congress government in the state.


“Book me in as many cases as you want, but you cannot bow me down. I won’t bow my head in front of your chair even if you hang me to death", he said addressing the chief minister directly in the assembly house.

He alleged that the Congress Government used the services of an IT company from Mumbai to make his speeches given at Nirmal and Nizamabad town viral on the social media and national media.


He even claimed that Chief Minister was aware of the entire 'conspiracy'. He also claimed that he has the documents to prove his charges on the Congress Government.

“If you think that my speeches were hate mongering, then the best way to respond to my speeches would be to implement Sachar committee and Ranganath Mishra commission recommendations", he said.

Owaisi also criticized Rs.10 billion sanctioned budget for minorities welfare terming it insufficient and just 0.68% of the total budget when the minority population in the state is more than 12%.


The MIM floor leader also reminded the government of a case of molestation of a school girl by the Headmaster. He said since the victim girl belongs to Muslim community, no action has been taken against the Headmaster for the last two years. Instead, he alleged that youth who protested against inaction, were arrested and booked under severe charges.

Akbaruddin Owaisi appealed to the government not to treat the case as molestation of a Muslim girl and take action by considering it as molestation of women, whose security and protection is being debated across the country.

Describing the Congress as a communal party, he said that nearly 50,000 riots took place during Congress regime in which thousands of Muslims were killed.

Replying to Owaisi’s allegations, Chief Minister said Akbaruddin Owaisi’s matter of hate speeches are sub-judice hence he cannot comment on it. However, he said, he never interfered in the procedure of law, and even in the case of Akbaruddin speeches law took its own course.

CM also refuted all the allegations of utilizing services of IT Company to make Akbar’s speeches viral. Reddy also added that he respects Owaisi brothers and have no personal grudge against them, and he never used police for any political vendetta.

Ending his reply chief minister Reddy told Owaisi, “Friend I respect you. But I am sorry, I am not like that. I am not against anybody."


"At the same time, I am not scared of anyone. For me, all are equal, and it's reflected in the policy of our government," Kiran Kumar said.
