Earlier, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that if someone wants to check his papers, they should look at Charminar which is the biggest proof that his forefathers have made it. His comment came in response to the Centre's decision on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).
New Delhi: BJP leader and Rajya Sabha lawmaker GVL Narasimha Rao slammed AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi for claiming that it was his forefathers who gave this country the Red Fort, Charminar and Qutub Minar.
Continuing his attack on Owaisi, Rao further said that these historical monuments were built with the money that was looted from the citizens of the country.
On Tuesday, Owaisi had said that no one has the right to seek papers from Muslims for proving their citizenship since they ruled India for years.
Addressing a rally, Owaisi criticised the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and said that it was his forefathers who gave this country the Red Fort, Charminar and Qutub Minar.
Reacting to this, Rao said, "Muslim rulers have looted the country for 800 years. They have persecuted Indians to which Owaisi is referring to, they are not built from Babar's money rather they were built with the money looted from the people of this country."
"So let Owaisi not claim to be a legatee of Muslim invaders in this country, whose operation is only remembered by the people of this country by linking up those oppressive," he added.
Rao further said that Owaisi would only be seen as somebody who is carrying on with that mindset which is complete "anathema" in a democracy where everyone is a servant of the people.
