He said that Modi doesn’t want to debate on the descending employment rates and the people who are turning out to be jobless. Owaisi told the reporters, “Some people get a shock at hearing words like cow and Om and it is unfortunate.”
On speaking to the Modi’s mindset towards the religion, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief said, “He doesn’t talk about the beauty of India, which is home to all the religions. He took oath on the Constitution and we had hoped that he will talk of all religions”.
“We want to ask the Prime Minister whether it is not true that each morning every Indian hears the azan from a masjid, Om from temple and hymns from other places of worship. He should have said the beauty of this nation is that it has followers of all religions,” he added.
Owaisi asserted, “We also want to know from Mr. Modi as to how many incidents of mob lynching occurred since he became Prime Minister”.
