Duniya Mein Rahenge Toh Ghaziyo’n Ki Tarah Rahenge: Owaisi

Must Read

The recent video clip featuring Asaduddin Owaisi, leader of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), has reignited concerns regarding his divisive rhetoric and its implications for communal harmony in India. Owaisi’s declaration to live or die as ‘Ghazis’ and his appeal to fellow Muslims to follow suit have sparked significant controversy and raised valid questions about his leadership and political agenda.

Owaisi Threatens “Kafirs”

Owaisi’s use of the term ‘Ghazi’ taps into deep-rooted religious sentiments, invoking the image of Islamic warriors fighting for the faith. However, critics argue that his invocation of this term is not a genuine call to religious devotion but rather a calculated political maneuver aimed at consolidating his support base among Muslims. By aligning himself and his followers with the imagery of historical figures known for conquests and conflicts, Owaisi appears to prioritize identity politics over genuine social welfare concerns.

Owaisi Fans Communal Tensions

The timing of AIMIM’s video release, just ahead of Hindu festivals like Chaitra Navaratri and Ram Navami, raises suspicions about Owaisi’s intentions. Previous instances of violence during these festivals underscore the delicate communal fabric of Indian society. Owaisi’s rhetoric, comes at such a sensitive juncture. It has the potential to inflame existing tensions and deepen divisions between religious communities. His call to live as ‘Ghazis’ could be interpreted by some as a tacit endorsement of confrontational attitudes towards non-Muslims.

Questionable Ideological Affiliations

Critics have long raised concerns about Owaisi’s ideological affiliations and alleged connections with organizations espousing extremist views. Owaisi portrays himself as a champion of minority rights. His associations with individuals and groups known for promoting divisive agendas cast doubt on his commitment to secularism and democratic values. The use of loaded religious terminology like ‘Ghazis’ only serves to reinforce these concerns. Owaisi is a figure willing to exploit communal sentiments for his political advantage.

Undermining National Unity

Owaisi’s emphasis on identity politics over national unity has drawn criticism from various quarters. He constantly harps on issues specific to the Muslim community and projecting himself as its sole representative. Owaisi risks the lives of other segments of society and weakening the bonds of national cohesion. His rhetoric fuels perceptions of separatism and exclusivity. It poses a threat to the Hindus and non Muslims of India.

Owaisi’s call to live as ‘Ghazis’ may resonate with some segments of the Muslim community. It is imperative to critically examine its broader implications for Indian society. By perpetuating divisive narratives and exploiting religious sentiments for political gain, Owaisi is calling for war.

Leaders like Owaisi must be held accountable for their actions and rhetoric. It will ensure that the pursuit of electoral success does not come at the expense of the nation!
