AIMIM Leader Akbaruddin Owaisi Claims Threats Against Owaisi Brothers, BJP MLA Responds

Akbaruddin Owaisi, the AIMIM floor leader and MLA from Chandrayangutta, has expressed concerns about the safety of himself and his brother Asaduddin Owaisi, the AIMIM party chief. During an Eid Milap meeting, Akbaruddin Owaisi indirectly referenced the death of gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari in Uttar Pradesh and stated that he hopes a similar fate will not befall him or his brother, but he is unsure if they will be poisoned in jail or shot dead while being taken to a hospital.

Owaisi appealed to the people to highlight any shortcomings of the AIMIM so that they can be rectified, emphasizing that he is not ready to be away from the public. Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Akbaruddin Owaisi urged Hyderabad voters to ensure Asaduddin Owaisi's victory by a larger majority.

Telangana BJP MLA T Raja Singh responded to Akbaruddin Owaisi's remarks, saying that his speech, poison, jail was a sentimental attempt to get Muslim votes. Raja Singh accused AIMIM of trying to be in the good books of those in power and indulging in "land grabbing" and "blackmailing other parties." He also claimed that the BJP would come to power in Telangana after four years and would then decide what to do with the Owaisi brothers.

Akbaruddin Owaisi has made serious allegations of a conspiracy against him and his party, claiming that attempts are being made to implicate them in false cases and eliminate them through sinister means, possibly including plans to "poison" them. Despite these alleged threats, Owaisi maintains that he and his party are unafraid and have the unwavering support of the people of Hyderabad.

The BJP has been actively attempting to make inroads in Hyderabad, fielding a female candidate for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and providing her with Y category security. However, AIMIM remains a dominant force in the region, and Owaisi's confident declaration of "This gadda.. MIM adda" reflects their firm belief in their continued electoral success.

Why this matters: The allegations made by Akbaruddin Owaisi and the response from the BJP MLA highlight the ongoing political tensions and communal dynamics in Hyderabad. The upcoming Lok Sabha elections will be a pivotal test of the strength and influence of both parties in the region.

Akbaruddin Owaisi's remarks have been seen by some as fear-mongering tactics used by AIMIM leaders to solidify their political control over the Muslim community in Hyderabad. The Owaisi brothers have a history of making controversial speeches and disregarding the law, often escaping under the guise of freedom of speech and religion. Their access to political power has also helped them expand their communal politics. A complaint was filed against Akbaruddin Owaisi in 2012 for a hate speech, but no action was taken.
