Mumbai: Targeting RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat over his lynching comments, AIMIM leader and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi said there cannot be a bigger insult to the country than the ideology which led to the killing of Mahatma Gandhi and the recent lynching of Tabrez Ansari in Jharkhand.
“The victims were Indians. Who garlanded convicts? Who draped them in tricolor? We have a Godse loving BJP MP. There cannot be a bigger defamation of India than the ideology that killed Gandhi or Tabrez. Bhagwat is not saying stop lynching, he is saying ‘do not call it that’,” Owaisi’s tweet read.

Earlier, on the occasion of Vijayadashami at Reshimbagh in Nagpur, Bhagwat had spoken about hate crimes and lynching, without naming any community.
“We hear people from one community beating people from another community. It’s not that only a certain community targets people. There are cases that have actually happened. Turns out. However, the self- Concentrated forces blame a particular community for setting the fire. Communities, “Bhagwat said naming the Sangh in these incidents is a conspiracy.
Talking about lynching, an issue that has been used against the BJP and the government under the leadership of the party, Bhagwat said that lynching is a foreign concept and society should know where the term came from.
“The term lynching comes from a foreign text where these incidents used to occur. We recommend stricter legal action against such incidents. These people are trying to discredit India in the world by citing incidents of lynchings. These people should not give protection to themselves. Political benefits, “Bhagwat said.
“Word lynching came from a foreign text where these incidents used to take place. We recommend strong lawful action against such incidents.
