PM Modi did disco dance, Bhangra, Bharatnatyam, says Owaisi in response to 'mujra' jibe in Patliputra rally

Earlier on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a rally in Patna and said that the I.N.D.I.A bloc is trying to snatch the quota of SCs, STs and OBCs to give it to Muslims. He went on and said they can remain slaves and do 'Mujra' to please their vote bank.

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 'mujra' remark, using the metaphors of other dance forms like 'disco', 'Bhangra' and 'Bharatnatyam'.

He made the comments while addressing a rally in Bihar’s Patliputra Lok Sabha seat. The Hyderabad MP recalled PM Modi's speech in the same locality the day before, when the PM had slammed opposition parties over reservation to Muslims by saying that they can perform 'mujra' for Muslims if it pleases them.

"Is this the type of language the prime minister should use? Does Modi think we do not have the faculty of speech?" said the fiery orator before launching an all-out attack.

"About 2,000 square kilometres of Indian territory has been captured by the Chinese. Modi has done nothing about that. I would like to ask whether he was doing disco dance on the issue," Owaisi said.

"The Citizenship (Amendment) Act was brought to disenfranchise Muslims and Modi kept doing Bhangra on the issue. Also, at Dharm Sansad (Hindu congregations) all sorts of offensive remarks are made about Muslims, especially our mothers and sisters. But Modi has been content doing Bharatnatyam on the issue," he alleged.

Owaisi targeted filmmakers

The AIMIM chief added, "Now that the PM has said that he is not biological, the only thing that remains to be said by him is that he is God and deserved to be worshipped. So much for his earlier posturing of being a chowkidar who wanted to bring good days (achche din)."

Owaisi also targeted filmmakers for producing works like 'Kashmir Files' and 'Kerala Story' and compared them to the propaganda machinery of Hitler "who vilified Jews, questioned their patriotism, spread hatred for their practices, and finally forced millions of them into gas chambers".

The Hyderabad MP also said, "Modi says that in his next term he will bring the Uniform Civil Code. It will be a nationwide replication of what has happened in BJP-ruled Uttarakhand where 'nikaah' is not being recognised and Muslims are being forced to take recourse to the Special Marriage Act."

AIMIM chief raises question on RJD over Muslim candidates

Turning towards RJD, Owaisi lambasted Tejaswi Yadav-led party for fielding only two Muslim candidates in the Lok Sabha polls while comparing it with an equal number of daughters of Lalu Prasad Yadav being given the ticket.

Launching a scathing attack on Tejaswi Yadav, Owaisi accused him of being "as guilty as Nitish Kumar", for the ascent of BJP in Bihar.

Owaisi recalled an instance of Siwan district and said, "Tejashwi Yadav was the deputy CM when a seven years old boy was sent to jail and he could not intervene despite pleas of his mother that the child be sent to a remand home.”

Owaisi rakes death of Shahabuddin and Atiq Ahmed

Referring to the death of former Siwan MP Mohd Shahabuddin, who "was denied a place of burial in his native place" and the killing of Atiq Ahmed, the AIMIM chief remarked "compare the tepid response of RJD to these incidents to the hue and cry it makes whenever a family member of Lalu Prasad faces arrest".

"I can give it in writing that the RJD cannot stop the BJP in Bihar. It (RJD) accuses the AIMIM of splitting Muslim votes so that it is able to preserve whatever political capital it is left with. I want to declare that we are in for a long haul in Bihar. Our party won five seats, and the RJD bought four of our MLAs in connivance with Nitish Kumar. But in the next assembly polls, we will make a comeback," the AIMIM president asserted.
