Telangana legislator is known for his hate speeches
| October 7, 2015
Telangana legislator and All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Akbaruddin Owaisi faces arrest over an inflammatory speech at an election rally in Bihar.
An FIR against Akbaruddin was registered on Monday at Kochadhaman Police Station in Kisanganj district and as a consequence, Kisanganj Superintendent of Police Rajiv Ranjan has issued the arrest order against Owaisi. The FIR was lodged against AIMIM leader for violation of provisions of section 144 of Crpc and under sections 153 A and 188 of IPC.
Section 153A deals with promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony, while section 188 deals with disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant.
Akbaruddin is younger brother of AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asauddin Owaisi.
Akbaruddin had addressed an election meeting at Sontha Haat under Kochadhaman Assembly constituency on Sunday. Akbaruddin had allegedly used abusive language against all MPs except his elder brother Asaduddin Owaisi. He also allegedly made provocative remarks against BJP leaders.
The AIMIM Legislator was booked in the wake of tension in the town after damage to idols in two temples were found on October 5 morning.
The SP had said that the police would probe whether damage to idols at two temples in the town was a fallout of his speech.
Akbaruddin Owaisi is not new to hate or inflammatory speeches. In 2013, he was arrested in February by then united Andhra Pradesh police and whisked away to Nirmal in Adilabad, 220 km from Hyderabad, after being subjected to medical tests at a government hospital.
The MIM MLA, who was directed by the police to present himself for questioning, had cited medical reasons while requesting the police to give him four days to appear before them. But it was turned down.
Restive MIM workers, who gathered at the hospital, jostled with the police and hurled stones at vehicles, forcing the police to resort to lathi-charge.
“The MLA was whisked away without informing us where he was being taken to,” he said. Mr. Owaisi was suffering from ‘acute pain’ due to hernia, and had undergone three surgeries, he added.
Akbaruddin survived an assassination attempt in May 2011.
