New Delhi: Asaduddin Owaisi, the chief of AIMIM has said that a law should be brought in which will punish all those who call Indian Muslims ‘Pakistanis’.
While speaking in the Lok Sabha, Owaisi added that a three year jail term should be awarded to all those who call Mulsims of the country ‘Pakistanis’.
Recently the District Magistrate of Bareilly questioned the growing trend of entering Muslims localities by force and raising anti-Pakistan slogans.
Raghvendra Vikram Singh had put up two posts on Facebook following the communal conflict in Uttar Pradesh’s Kasganj, where a youth lost his life in clashes following stone-pelting by a mob on a motorcycle rally taken out to celebrate Republic Day.
In one of his posts, the DM wrote: “Ajab rivaz ban gaya hai. Muslim mohallo me jabrdasti julus le jao aur Pakistan murdabad ke nare lagao. Kyon bhai, ve Pakistani hain kya? Yehi yahan Bareilly mein Khailam mein hua tha. Fir patharav hua, mukadme likhe gaye…” (A very strange trend has started of late. Take out processions by force through Muslim dominated localities and raise anti-Pakistan slogans. Why? Are these people Pakistani? The same thing had happened in Khailam village of Bareilly. Then stones were pelted, FIRs lodged).
Faced with severe backlash and threats, he later deleted the post, but maintained that he stood by his remarks.
