'First FIR that does not specify what the crime is': AIMIM chief Owaisi strongly condemns Delhi Police

New Delhi: 

All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday hit back at the the Delhi Police for registering an FIR against the former over his alleged inflammatory remarks. The AIMIM chief said the FIR does not specify the crime, adding that he cannot remember specific remarks on which the complaint has been filed. 

Taking to his Twitter, Owaisi said, “I’ve received an excerpt of the FIR. This is the first FIR I’ve seen that’s not specifying what the crime is. Imagine an FIR about a murder where cops don’t mention the weapon or that the victim bled to death. I don’t know which specific remarks of mine have attracted the FIR.”

The AIMIM chief accused the Delhi Police of smartly booking Hindu leaders for allegedly making hate comments that will not hurt anyone from the Hindutava promoters. ” Delhi Police were probably trying to think of a way of registering an FIR against these people without offending Hindutvadi fanboys/girls.”  

He said the Delhi Police lacks courage to pursue cases against Yati, Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal. He said, “In fact Yati has violated his bail conditions repeatedly by inciting genocide against Muslims and insulting Islam.” 

Continuing in the series of tweets, he said, ” Delhi Police is suffering from “both sideism” or “balance-waad” syndromes. One side has openly insulted our Prophet while the other side has been named to assuage BJP supporters and make it look like there was hate speech on both sides.” 

Owaisi claimed that the police has taken ‘weak response’ due to the ‘international condemnation or when courts pulled up the police.’

He also attacked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogo Adityanath, he said,  “Hindutva organisations have a culture where hate speech and extremism is rewarded with promotions. Eg., Yogi’s hate was rewarded with Lok Sabha seats and Chief Ministership.”

He further added that, “Modi’s hate speeches were similarly rewarded.”

The AIMIM chief said, “If Modi were sincere he would have stamped out hate speech without indulging in fake balance-vaad. Let genocidal hate speakers be put in prison under non-bailable draconian laws rather than getting promotions.”

The Delhi Police registered an FIR against the AIMIM chief over his alleged inflammatory remarks. Hindu leader Swami Yati Narasimhananda has also been mentioned in the FIR. 

This development comes amidst a raging controversy by expelled Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nupur Sharma. Apart from Owaisi and Yati Narasimhananda, the Delhi Police has also taken action against nine other people for allegedly controversial statements.
