Mumbai: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi violated the oath of office by laying the foundation stone of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Owaisi told reporters here, “India is a secular country. The Prime Minister has violated the oath of office by laying the foundation stone of the Ram temple. It is a day of the defeat of democracy and secularism and success of Hindutva.”
He said, “The Prime Minister said today that he is passionate. I want to say that I am equally passionate because I believe in the coexistence and equality of citizenship. Prime Minister, I am passionate because a mosque has been around for 450 years.” Was standing there.”
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi performed ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ at Ram temple in Ayodhya today.
The Hyderabad MP had earlier suggested that Modi should not attend the Ram temple foundation stone laying ceremony as Prime Minister. He said that the PM should “say that he will go in his personal capacity and that no TV channel should telecast live.”
“I have said in an interview to Outlook magazine that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not attend that event. Because if he participates in that function as Prime Minister, there will be a message in the country that the Prime Minister is only a people of faith,” he said.
“There is no religion in the country. Is there any religion of India and the Government of India? He is the prime minister of Muslims, Hindus, Dalits, backward, Sikhs, Christians, and those who do not believe in any faith,” he said.
