Now Asaduddin Owaisi denied permission to address rally in Mumbra
Thursday February 6, 2014 1:15 AM, News Network

Member of Parliament from Hyderabad and president of All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Asaduddin Owaisi has been banned from entering the jurisdiction of Thane district till February 10.

Asaduddin Owaisi, a proficient orator who was recently awarded the best Sansad Award for 2014, was scheduled to address a public meeting on February 08 in Mumbra – a Muslim majority area in Mumbai suburbs.

The meeting, supposed to deliberate on lack of political power among the Muslims, is called by My Mumbra Foundation.

According to the reports appearing in local newspapers, Thane Police Commissioner KP Raghuwanshi in the notice issued to Asaduddin Owais reasoned that his speech may create a law and order problem in the area hence he should not enter in the Thane district jurisdiction till February 10.

Asaduddin Owaisi was earlier this month denied permission to address a public meeting in Uttar Pradesh's Azamgarh. Before that Maharashtra police had stopped him from holding rallies in Aurangabad, Malegaon and Dhule.

All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) had created a political storm in October 2012 by winning about a dozen seats in Nanded municipal elections, snatching most of them from Congress.

Ever since then AIMIM is trying hard to expand its base in other parts of Maharashtra.

However, the Cong-NCP led government in Maharashtra is in no mood to give the high profile leader, known for his fiery speeches in and outside the parliament, a free run in the state.

Though there are varied opinions on the logic of the Maharashtra government to ban in such a manner the rallies of a parliamentarian, Asaduddin Owais himself feels that the move is further strengthening his position among the Muslims.
