Hyderabad: Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi, President of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) reacted after BJP decided to field Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur from the Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency.
Addressing a public gathering, Mr. Owaisi raised a question over PM Modi’s “zero tolerance” towards terrorism.
Highlighting the fact that NIA court has not acquitted Pragya Singh in Malegaon blast case, Mr. Owaisi said in the blast, six persons were killed and 100 were injured.
Their manifesto says zero tolerance on terrorism, but they go ahead and nominate a terror accused. What will they say to those injured & murdered on Malegaon?#PragyaJoinsBJP pic.twitter.com/umX2pHF65f

Referring to the “zero tolerance policy”, Mr. Owaisi alleged that PM Modi is a liar.
It may be mentioned that Sadhvi Pragya is contesting against senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh from the Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency, which goes to the polls in the sixth phase on May 12.
Earlier, Sadhvi Pragya had said that the people who insult religion are weak by nature. She said she would bring back glory to Hindutva and act against those who have misused the law for implementing women, sanyasi and Hindu leaders.
