Asaduddin Owaisi, the Chief of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), filed an adjournment petition in the Lok Sabha on Monday in response to a Mahapanchayat organised to prevent the construction of a Haj House in Dwarka, Delhi.

Owaisi also went on to say that at the Mahapanchayat, remarks were made and slogans against Muslim people were raised and that it was necessary to defer the meeting to consider the issue because Delhi had seen communal violence only a year ago.

“I hereby give notice of my intention to ask for leave to move a motion for the adjournment of the business of the house for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent importance, namely:-On August 6, 2021, in Dwarka, Delhi a ‘Mahapanchayat’ was organized to oppose construction of a proposed Haj House. At the Mahapanchayat, speeches were made and slogans were raised against Muslim citizens. On Sunday a gathering at Jantar Mantar raised genocidal slogans against Muslim citizens”. AIMIS Chief said in the notice.

On Twitter, Owaisi went on to say that even requesting justice and legal action has become a charade.

“Circumstances have become such that even demanding justice and legal action has become a joke. This should be discussed in the Lok Sabha today, Wazir-e-Dakhla should be held accountable. I have given notice of the adjournment motion in accordance with the rules of the Lok Sabha on this issue,” Owaisi tweeted.

Owaisi blasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, claiming that on Sunday, anti-Muslim slogans were yelled at, at Jantar Mantar, which is 20 minutes away from the Prime Minister’s residence.

The AIMIM head further chastised the Delhi Police for failing to take action against those who shouted anti-Muslim chants at the Jantar Mantar.

“After all, what is the secret of the growing courage of these hooligans? They know that the Modi Government stands with them. On July 24, the Central Government under National Security Act (NSA) had given the Delhi Police the right to detain any person. Yet the Delhi Police is quietly watching the spectacle,” Owaisi added.

An FIR has been filed against unknown persons, according to Delhi Police officials, after a video surfaced yesterday showing incendiary slogans being chanted at Jantar Mantar during a march for “Colonial Laws and Make Uniform Laws.”
