All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on August 05 slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said PM has violated the oath of the office by laying the foundation stone of Ram Mandir. Adding on it, Owaisi said this is the day of the defeat of democracy and secularism and success of Hindutva. "The Prime Minister today said he was emotional. I want to say that I am also equally emotional because I believe in coexistence and equality of citizenship. Mr Prime Minister, I am emotional because a mosque stood there for 450 years," he added. Today, PM laid foundation stone of the Ram Temple in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya.
Hours after Prime Minister Modi laid the foundation stone of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi lashed out. Owaisi said that the Prime Minister violated the oath of office by attending the ceremony in his official capacity. He further added that this is a victory for Hindutva and the secular tenet of the constitution has been violated. Mocking PM Modi's 'India is emotional' remark, the AIMIM leader said that he is also emotional as he believes in the equality of all citizens and believes a mosque stood in the spot for the last 450 years. Owaisi further alleged that BJP and RSS cadres had demolished the Babri mosque and lied to the Supreme Court. Owaisi had objected to PM Modi attending the ground breaking ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya earlier as well. PM Modi during his speech in Ayodhya said that Lord Ram is all about unity & love and also added that the temple will inspire people of many generations. Watch the full video for all the details.
