Kapil Mishra says Asaduddin Owaisi will start reciting Hanuman Chalisa: BJP leader Kapil Mishra on Tuesday posted another controversial tweet, saying AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi will start reading Hanuman Chalisa if the majority community stands united. He said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal chanted Hanuman Chalisa and Owaisi will follow suit.
The BJP leader said that the unity of the majority community, referring to the Hindus, will become the grave of the dirty politics played by the 20 percent vote bank. This comes days after the Election Commission temporarily banned the former AAP leader from poll campaigning in Delhi over his contentious remarks.
The Delhi Model Town constituency candidate had tweeted that many mini Pakistan has been created in Delhi, referring to Shaheen Bagh, the center of anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests. He also compared the upcoming polls a contest between India and Pakistan.
On Monday, Mishra asked Kejriwal to change the party’s name to Muslim League while accusing the Delhi CM of doing Jinnah politics. Earlier, the AAP had urged the EC to punish Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from the campaign over his remarks. Extending his support to Adityanath, Mishra said that only those standing by terrorists, traitors, and rioters were afraid of the UP CM.
Ever since the poll-campaign was kickstarted in the national capital, several BJP leaders have made controversial speeches. The saffron party’s campaign revolved around Shaheen Bagh with its leaders accusing the protesters of being potential rapists, killers and anti-national.
Last week, BJP MP Parvesh Verma said that anti-CAA protesters will enter the houses to rape and kill daughters and sisters. Verma also said that all the mosques built on the government land will be razed down if the saffron party comes to power in the national capital.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Assembly polls will be held on February 8 in a single phase. The counting of votes will be done on February 11.
