New Delhi, August 09: The two gatherings – one on August 6 at Dwarka and another on August 8 at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi– where anti-Muslim slogans were raised by participants are set to storm Parliament, as Asaduddin Owaisi of AIMIM has given an adjournment motion in Lok Sabha to discuss the issues as of “urgent public importance”.
In the notice, Owaisi said, “On Friday (August 6) in Dwarka, Delhi, a mahapanchayat was organised to oppose construction of a proposed Haz House. At the mahapanchayat, speeches were made and slogans were raised against Muslim citizens. On August 8, a gathering at Jantar Mantar raised slogans against Muslim citizens.”
In the notice, he also alleged that no action had been taken against “organisers/participants of either of the gatherings”.
He said, “Since law and order and police are responsibility of government and since Delhi has witnessed a communal violence just last year, it is important to adjourn business to discuss this matter of urgent public importance.”
The rally had hundreds of people in attendance, police officials said, while claiming that the purported videos of the event showed people shouting slogans threatening harm to Muslims.
