Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi once again attacked BJP and party president Amit Shah alleging that Amit Shah wants a Muslim-free India while addressing a rally in Hyderabad.


On Wednesday, Owaisi said, "Amit Shah aake Telangana mein boley Hyderabad ko majlis se mukt karoonga.Kaun sa mukt karenge aap? Kahan se mukt karenge aap? Aap majlis mukt nahi aap Bharat se musalmaanon ko mukt karna chahte hain. Bharat se musalmanon ka annihilation karna chahte hain (Amit Shah came to Hyderabad and said he would wipe out AIMIM. He will wipe them out from where? He actually wants to make India Muslim-free)." 

The AIMIM has re-nominated its seven sitting MLAs to contest in Hyderabad’s Old City and is expected to release a second list shortly for the upcoming Telangana polls. This may include contesting from areas like Amberpet, Jubilee Hills, Musheerabad, Rajendranagar, Secunderabad and Uppal besides areas like Maheshwaram and Nizamabad Urban in Telangana.

AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi was reacting to BJP national president Amit Shah on October 10 vowed to rid Hyderabad from the holds of Asaduddin Owaisi’s party if the BJP is voted to power in Telangana.

BJP, on October 14, had almost finalised on Syed Shahezadi to fight against Akbaruddin Owaisi, the younger brother of Asaduddin Owaisi. Akbaruddin Owaisi is a four-time MLA representing the constituency of the Old City (Hyderabad).

Syed Shahezadi (25), is a member of National Executive Council of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). He is an active student leader, and BJP thought that she would be a worthy candidate to spread PM Modi's message to the minority.
