Recent untoward incidents in Delhi, Madhya Pradesh during a procession near mosques were shocking. All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi called for cameras to be set up at mosques amid recent incidents of communal clashes.
Referring to incidents of communal violence in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri and MP’s Khargone, Asaduddin Owaisi said that mosques should put up high-resolution cameras to record religious processions so that people can know who is pelting stones.
The AIMIM chief also hit out at the BJP-led government at the Centre and accused them of indulging in the politics of hate.
Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted, “This order to survey Kashi’s Gyanvapi Masjid is an open violation of the 1991 Places of Worship Act, which prohibits conversion of religious places.”
Talking about his tweet, Owaisi said, “The Government of India and the UP government should’ve told the Court that Parliament passed the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act, 1991; it stated that no religious place, as it existed on August 15th, 1947, will be disturbed.” They should’ve told the court. “
He added, “The Modi government knows that when the Babri Masjid Civil Title judgement came, it linked the 1991 Act to the basic structure of the Constitution.” It was the constitutional duty of the government to tell the court that what they’re doing is wrong. But since they do politics of hatred, they stayed silent. “
