Taking strong exception to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat's speech at a RSS headquarters, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi alleged on Thursday that the RSS and the BJP believe in "totalitarianism" and not in the rule of law.
Owaisi's comments came in reaction to the demand made by RSS chief for a law to enable the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
In his customary Dussehra address to Sangh cadres at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur, Bhagwat said Ram temple was necessary for "self-esteem" and to usher an "atmosphere of goodwill and oneness" in the country.
Owaisi, Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad, said the Supreme Court clearly stated that there cannot be an exclusive law for any particular religion and it was violation of the Constitution.
The Ayodhya case is currently before the Supreme Court and the next hearing is scheduled for October 29.
