Asaduddin Owais lashes Amit Shah for “rioters taught lesson in 2002” remark

Firing a fresh salvo at Union Home Minister Amit Shah All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi took a dig for his “taught lessons to rioters in 2002” statement.

“Amit Shah today gave a statement during a public rally that they taught a lesson to the rioters of Gujarat in 2002 and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) established permanent peace in the state. I want to tell the MP of this (Ahmedabad) constituency, Amit Shah, that the lesson you taught in 2002 was that Bilkis’ rapists will be freed by you. The lesson you taught was that you will free the murderers of Bilkis’ three-year-old daughter. You also taught us that Ahsan Jafri can be killed,” the AIMIM chief said while addressing a public gathering at Juhapura.

AIMIM chief further said, “Amit Shah, what lesson did you teach to the rioters of Delhi communal riots of 2020?”

Meanwhile, Owaisi also urged the voters to vote for its female nominee Zainab Sheikh from the Vejalpur constituency.

“If you would vote for Congress or Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) then your vote will be wasted. Vote for AIMIM to utilize your vote,” Owaisi said.

Moreover, for the upcoming Gujarat Assembly polls All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) will field 14 candidates.

AIMIM Gujarat State president Sabir Kabliwala tweeted the names of candidates from Mandvi, Bhuj, Vadgam, Sidhdhapur, Vejalpur, Bapunagar, Dariyapur, Jamalpur Khadiya, Danilimda, Khambhadiya, Mangrol, Limbayat, Surat East and Godhara constituencies.

However, on 1 December and 5 December, Gujarat elections will take place and the counting of votes will take place on 8 December.
