BJP’s Hindutva agenda weakening India, says Owaisi

Hyderabad, June 26 (KMS): The Narendra Modi-led Indian government has been pursuing Hindutva politics for the last eight years, says All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi.

The Hyderabad MP believes that from mob lynching to the legislation to ban triple talaq and from attempts to change religious character of mosques to use of bulldozers to raze the houses of Muslims in states like Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh all show that the BJP and RSS have been working to implement their agenda.

“BJP has been doing politics of hate for the last eight years. They are encouraging violence to meet their ideological ends. They have legitimised violence in eight years,” said Owaisi.

The idea of Hindu Rashtra is based on Hindu supremacy, which he said, means is subjugation of anyone who isn’t Hindu. “Hindutva is a threat to the Constitution and Constitutional morality,” he observed.

Owaisi alleged that ever since Narendra Modi came to power in 2014, there have been efforts to demolish secularism and turn the country into a Hindu Rashtra.
