Leader of the All India Muslim Union (AIMIM) and MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi made disapproving remarks about Maharashtra President Navnirman Sena Raj Thackeray. At a meeting organized in Aurangabad, without naming Raj Thackeray, Akbaruddin Owaisi said – I have not come here to answer or speak ill of anyone. You have no right to reply to me. I have a vice, you are homeless, missing, you were kicked out of the house. After this, Akbar Al-Din Al-Owaisi said that if a dog barks, let it bark.
I would like to say to the youth, so let it happen, said Akbar Al-Din Al-Owaisi while addressing the crowd. I would say that no matter how much a dog barks let him bark, it is the job of dogs to bark and the job of lions to remain silent. Just let him bark. Understand the urgency of the time and situation. They weave a net and want to trap you, but you don’t have to fall into their nets. Shut up, smile and move on. Akbar El-Din added that there is talk of hatred in the country, but we will respond to hatred with love. He said that there is talk of the call to prayer in the country, and discussions are underway about killing the hijab and the mob, but Muslims should not be afraid of that. It is required that Muslims meet.
It is pertinent to note that in the past, Raj Thackeray, Chairman of MNS, has sparked controversy over the loud speaker in Maharashtra. Raj Thackeray gave a one-month ultimatum to the government, and said that if the government did not remove the loudspeakers from mosques within a month, his workers would play a loud Hanuman Chalisa outside the mosque during the call to prayer.
