According to the report, The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) has condemned Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s remark that Hyderabad is sitting on a powder keg and has terrorists more dangerous than those in Kashmir and says it will complain to the Election Commission.
MIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that Modi’s remarks made at a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) election rally Monday night were part of a conspiracy to weaken the Muslim leadership in Hyderabad.
"Modi’s aim is to weaken MIM and the Muslim leadership here and so he is trying to link the city with terrorism," Owaisi told IANS.
He added that he would complain to the Election Commission about Modi’s provocative speech.
"The Muslims in Hyderabad are prosperous and politically aware. Kerala and Andhra Pradesh are the only two states in India which have Muslim parties and Muslim leadership. Kerala was maligned in such a systematic manner that it has become a den of terrorists. Now the image of Hyderabad is also being tarnished," said Owaisi, who is seeking re-election from the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency.
