BJP Hyderabad MP candidate targets Asaduddin Owaisi for praising beef shop owner

Controversy was triggered after Hyderabad MP, while campaigning in Old City, stopped at a shop and said, 'Rehan Beef Shop Zindabad'.

Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP candidate for the Hyderabad Parliamentary Constituency, Madhavi Latha, has targeted All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi for praising a beef shop owner in the city.

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also reacted, saying, “His political statements are always indecent. I am not surprised that he passed such statements. His younger brother (Akbaruddin Owaisi) is an MLA. He is also an expert in giving such extreme statements, therefore I am not surprised.”

‘Is the life of a Muslim so small’, questions BJP Hyderabad MP candidate

Reacting to the video, the BJP Hyderabad MP candidate said, “I don’t understand how Asaduddin Owaisi became a barrister. He keeps talking about personal law. According to personal law, a ‘Fatwa’ is something that is to be obeyed by all… When there is a Fatwa that beef should not be consumed, then how is he going against the Fatwa. This means he does not respect his own religion…”

She further said, “Is the life of a Muslim so small that it revolved around cutting and consuming beef? You are asking for votes on this?… Why is he making the lives of Muslims so small?…”

“He should speak of getting an education and being something for the country… What does it mean to cut beef? Did he not get anything else to ask for votes?… It is a matter of surprise for me…”, she added.

Both candidates are leaving no stone unturned to win the Hyderabad seat, which has been represented by AIMIM since 1984.
