Asaduddin Owaisi car attack: Amit Shah to brief Parliament today

Asaduddin Owaisi

The attack on the convoy of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi in Uttar Pradesh last week will be the subject of a statement by Union Home Minister Amit Shah today in both Houses of Parliament.

While on his way to New Delhi, Owaisi’s convoy was attacked in Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur district. In this case, two people have been arrested so far, and police have filed a FIR for attempted murder. According to police, two pistols and a Maruti Alto car were recovered in connection with the case.

“During interrogation, both the accused said they were angry at the provocative statements of Owaisi and his party functionaries and to express their annoyance, they carried out the incident,” PTI quoted an officer as saying.

In the aftermath of the attack, the central government provided Owaisi with Z security from the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), which the Hyderabad member of Parliament rejected. Speaking on the House floor, Owaisi stated that he is not afraid of dying and that he wishes to live as a “A category citizen.” He also called the government’s attention to the recent Dharma Sansad, or religious parliament, in Haridwar and Prayagraj, which featured hate speeches.

“Who are these people who believe in bullets and not the ballot, who have so much hate. If this is the kind of politics we are going to see, of bullets being strewn at a tollbooth, we can see the kind of radicalisation,” Owaisi said.

He also urged the Ministry of Home Affairs to create a special cell to “address this type of radicalization.”

Shah is scheduled to speak in the Rajya Sabha at 11.30 a.m. and the Lok Sabha at 4 p.m.
