” Oh Hindustan – We are 25 crores, you are 100 crores. Remove the police for 15 minutes and we will show you who has more courage and strength. ( Crowd rises up in standing ovation ) ! – Today, I have this mike in front of me. If tomorrow I hold something else, then there will be so much of bloodshed in this country which this country has not seen in the last 1000 years ” – Akbaruddin Owaisi
Thanks to the initiative taken by a bold advocate and the social media groups, the mainstream media was forced to take up the issue of the rabid hate mongering tha Mr.Akbaruddin Owaisi who is a MIM MLA ,floor leader in the AP Legislative Assembly. Mr.Akbar is not new to this spewing of venom and he has done it on numerous occasions in the past. In some of our earlier posts we had questioned the MIM’s actions and exposed how they manufacture riots in the city of Hyderabad.
The idea, it seems is to spread their network outside Hyderabad now and go pan-India. His brother who is also a MP and is a frequent panelist in NDTV and other English channels, has not condemned the comments which also implicitly show that he is in support of what Akbaruddin said.
Videos of Akbaruddin Owaisi at Nirmal Dec 2012 are below
While the whole speech was inflammatory and derogatory, for the benefit of many ten key points have been listed down.
Ten Key Objectionable Points made by Akbaruddin Owaisi against the country and Hindus during a public program at Nirmal, Adilabad district, Andhra Pradesh – Dec 24th 2012.
1. Insulting Temples :
He says ” In Hindustan, we (Muslims) ruled for 1000 years and we left our symbols. Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Agra Fort, Qutub Minar, Charminar, Golkonda and hundreds of other symbols. The world comes to Hindustan to see our symbols. The people from the world do not come to see Ram and Krishna Mandirs” .
2. Claiming that Indian Muslims have the legacy of the invaders. He says”When we ruled for 1000 years, we were not even 1 crore, now we are 25 crores Why are we silent now ? .Every Pandit and Pujari used to offer salaam ( salute) to us. The 4 minars of Charminar show that the East-West-North-South were dominated by us” .
3. Justifying Terror attacks :
He Says ” Terror attacks happened, bomb blasts happened – they were wrong. But Oh Hindustan if you had not allowed destruction of Babri Masjid, then the bomb blasts at Mumbai would also not have happened. Every action has a reaction. I am only for Muslims. We will think about secularism only after Babri masjid is rebuilt. “
4.. Spreading wrong Information about legal system :
He says ” Ajmal Kasab was hanged. I dont want to go into a debate on his hanging. Why was he hanged ? He came from Pak came into India, killed 200 civilians and he was hanged. In Gujarat, the person who killed 2000 Muslims – no case has been filed against him. If there is any law in this country, then the way you have hanged Kasab, you must hang Modi. This Muslim of Andhra gives a call that if muslims unite then Modi will also be hanged.”
5. Justifying Bangladeshi Infiltration into Assam : He says ” In Assam, the riots happened using AK-47 on Muslims. You say they are Bangladeshi. If the Muslims are Bangladeshi, who are you Advani ? You ran away and came to India. We Muslims of this country did not run away anywhere. “
6. Insulting Hindu customs : He says “This country was ours and will remain ours.” ( he stated earlier that the country was ruled by Babar, Shah Jahan & Aurangzeb and they are their followers). He says further ” If in case we go, we will take Taj, Qutub Minar, Red fort. What will be left ? The dilapated Ram Mandir of Ayodhya, the nude paintings of Ajanta-Ellora ! What else be left ? When we die, we are buried because we have love for the land. When you die, you are cremated and mix with the nature like vagabonds.”
7.Threatening a democratically elected CM : He says “There are many such Modis who have come and gone. Modi, come to Hyderabad once and we will show you. Tasleema Nasreen came, no one knows where she is. She ran away. The same will happen to Modi.”
8. Encouraging Violence and Call To Muslims to Kill Hindus – He says” Hindustan – We are 25 crores, you are 100 crores. Remove the police for 15 minutes and we will show you who has more courage and strength. ( Crowd rises up in standing ovation ) Why are you afraid ? When something happens ( meaning riots), I get phone calls. Nobody calls and tells me- “This happened and I did this and now you take care”. Take action – don’t fear. Today, I have this mike in front of me. If tomorrow I hold something else, then there will be so much of bloodshed in this country which this country has not seen in the last 1000 years.”
9. Insulting National Heroes & Hindu sentiments- He says “In Ayodhya , there are 3 mandirs where people claim that Ram was born here. In Haryana, Kaushalyapuram there are places where people say Ram was born here. Oh Vajpayee, Oh Advani, tell us where all did Ram’s mother go. They say Ram was born 15 Lakhs years ago. How do they know what happened so many lakhs of years when we are unable to track even 200 years of history ?”
He further says ” There are many pujas that they( Hindus) do. Rama, Lakshman, Durga..how many more. I knew Lakshmi but who is Bhagyalakshmi ? What sort of names are these ? I dont want to spoil the atmopshere of this pious program by taking this manhoos(ill-fated) names – ( names of Hindu gods and goddesses) ” !
10. Reg cow slaughter– He says ” If only they ( Hindus) also eat the beef, they will realise how tasty it is. We are eating it and we love it. We will not compromise ” .
Updates : The media had ignored the issue. But due to the pressure by social media, the police and electronic media was forced to take up the issue.
Update on 8th Jan 2013 : Owaisi returns from UK. He had gone to London after his speech. He indicated that he was unwell and should not be arrested. He went through the check-up at Gandhi hospital, found fit and arrested.
Update 10th Jan 2013 – NDTV Interview with Mr.Asaduddin Owaisi, Chief of MIM and brother of Akbaruddin. http://www.ndtv.com/video/player/india-decides-9/loyalty-of-muslims-is-being-questioned-asaduddin-owaisi/261413
The danger is that NDTV asks him what he feels about BJP’s statement on Akbaruddin instead of insisting on asking what the nation feels. The speech is not just about hate-speech but against sedition against Bharat.

he says tourist comes in india to see their monuments so owaisi check about tourist place and short out the muslims or muughals monuments yhan u know the reality that except lal quila qutub minar char minar taj mahal and somewhat in up u dont have anything to say made by mughals and he says that muslim ruled over india for 1000 yeas so dear they ruled just 7 th century to 16th and let me correct they cant ruled over whole india
he says we a 2 million and they are 1o billion show our power so dont try to make differences between hidues and muslims and i think he forgot abour maharana pratap akbar send his full force 6 time to defeat maharana pratap but even after that h cant defeat a small teritory udaipur king maharana pratapand i dont think to waste time to told them about such great ideals
ohh some comments that they kill hindues ,raped blah,blah!! so dear we hindues are born to respect and help other not to kill other muslims are our brother but that is not our fear its our religion to respect all.
chlo ab facts pr aate h you can recheck them
18,000 deadly terror attacks committed explicitly in the name of Islam in just the last ten years. (Other religions combined for perhaps a dozen or so).
he told about shree ram so dear we worship their karmas their character what they do for society and sorry to say about read it
Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing his religion. This included women. Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad
Muhammad said in many places that he has been “ordered by Allah to fight men until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger.” In the last nine years of his life, he ordered no less than 65 military campaigns to do exactly that.
so tell me god sends us to spread peace and help others not to war for your religion religion are made by human not religion made us
SO STOP THAT RUBISH ABOUT ANY RELIGION AND WHO IS SAYING ABOUT HINDUES FACE ME I WILL TELL YOU THAT WE ARE TO RESPECT ALL LIKE RAMA TO SPREAD PEACE LIKE BUDDHA OR ASHOK AND IF ANYONE HAVE ABOUT OUR STRENGTH THEN WE ARE VEER SHIVAJI.RANA PRATAP.
Hello brother i think u don’t knw knowldge abt pork (pig meet) pig excreats only 2% urea and 98% wil be depositf in body itself which is very poisionous and harmful to man, and pig don’t have neck and in islam only halal is eaten and u can’t slaughter pig in islamic way if u slaughter pig the blood containing urea falls on u which is unhealty and unhygenic,unclean (islam is purity,healtyness,unhygenic) even the gut of pig contains different types of tapeworms,round worms. Many parasitic organisms which are responsible for causing more than 70 diseases , so pig is prohibitted in islam brother

A cant see any foul and false statements with akbar owaisi
he is the habeeb(friend) and naqeeb(voice) of muslims of india but there is some delay on his busting over on anti-muslim sentiments
No you can’t, for obvious reasons. You better figure out what is wrong, because if you claim unlawful and anti-social element is your naqeeb, that tells more about you than him.

Reason why such character would rise in India is, we are not free even today ruled by foreigner. We have an example of Sonia Ghandhi dominating India. We Indians are nothing but stupid as busy in corruptions, what chance do we have when we are cutting our own arms and legs. By such morale, we have degraded so much that created our own destruction, these are nothing but the results. When Baba Ramdev took the campaign against corruption first in Delhi, what happened? Then why such nasty speech threatening peace and national safety took place and nothing happened?. Such weakness is our downfall and could be tragedy to India. Muslims are most ignorance and arrogant and so easily led away by such thugs to any level of destruction as we have so many examples of terrorism all over the world. When would the world rise from this understanding.
why doesnt he eat pork.. that too tastes good..
Stupid guy.. This is an era of technological advancements and modern acheievements.. These guys think only about reproduction and supressing their own mothers and sisters by imposing burqa and female circumcision..it is waste of time & energy to discuss & bother about these guys..
We all have to blame indian political system to encourage such elements..
who do you refer to as ‘these guys’ , why on earth are you hiding your identity ?
truth always prevails and always comes out. Stop pointing fingers on others mum and sisters. time is so precious for you………..gosh , you must be running the whole world with your technology orelse it would have stopped.
blame your brain not the political system
hahaha.. Uzair iss correct..
why is he hiding himself.. coz no other community was/is/will be ever born like muslims..
proud to be a muslim…
let the cowards.. loosers say… time will tell
What does he mean by ” We ruled for 1000 years ” ? The Turko-Afghan invaders ruled over India for that 1000 years, but the Muslims you see in India today are all converted Muslims, their ancestors were all Hindus. It is foolish of Owaisi to claim that he and his fellow Muslims belong to the lineage of Ghazni, Ghauri, Babur and Aurangzeb. No matter how much they deny, the Muslims ( and also the Christians ) belong to the same ancestry as Hindus.
Anyways, this guy is just a bag of garbage. His efforts to divide India will be futile, as the Muslims will rather follow the examples of Ashfaqullah Khan ( a great patriot and martyr for independance ), Shahnawaz Khan ( general of Netaji’s Azad Hind Fauj ), Abdul Hamid ( the brave Indian Army general who blasted Pakistani tanks and became martyred in the 1965 war ), Kazi Nazrul Islam ( great Bengali poet, extremely nationalistic, and even composed and sang Hindu devotional songs ), Bismillah Khan ( great musician ), Alauddin Khan ( guru of Pandit Ravi Shankar, who used to offer namaz and then pray to Goddess Saraswati ), APJ Abdul Kalam ( who made the nuclear missile for India and even been our President ) and Azim Premji.
Akbaruddin ( I hate to utter its name ) should be shot at sight by the Army.
Pls dont be misinformed. The TUrko Afgan never ruled india for 1000 yrs. It is a canard spread by gandhi nehru alias Ghiasudin Ghazi family.
Read the correct Info. and decide for your self.
Then who ruled India between 1206-1857 AD ? Who destroyed the Somnath Temple, Keshav Deo Temple ( Mathura ), Kashi Vishwanath Temple ? Who razed to the ground the grand universities of Nalanda and Vikramshila ? Who burnt our sacred books ? Who killed an estimate 80 million Hindus ? Who raped the Hindu women en masse and send them to harems in Arabia ? Who carried out forceful conversions as a result of which we have 200 million Muslims today ? Please do explain to me the history of that period.
Muslim rulers never had complete Indian territory under their rule. Look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delhi_Sultanate to understand what their rule was limited to. And see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maratha_empire, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:India_18th_century.JPG, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vijayanagara_Empire, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakatiya_Empire, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahom_kingdom to understand what was the Hindu control during the socalled Muslim rule.
The persistent Muslim invasions started as early as 7th century, and after almost a hundred years they managed to breach Afghanistan and enter Panjab. Clan after clan kept invading and was repulsed at one point or the other, whether Panjab or Rajasthan or Ujjain areas. The glorified Ghazni hardly could make a breach and was repeatedly made to fly – which they try to advertise as “raids”. Finally they did bring Delhi under their control, and made raids deep down in south, after several failed attempts and shameless retreats. No honest and dignified ruler would have made repeated raids after successive defeats, but the Hindu kings overestimated the character levels of Muslim invaders. Anyways, there were multiple Sultanates that got control of some parts of South India. North East never came under Muslims because of Ahom resistance. No single Muslim clan could rule even Delhi for long. Unfortunately for Hindus, whenever they brought down one clan another external force started an invasion. When the herioc Rana Sanga almost expelled Lodi the Timurid Bariarian Babur invaded. And when the Mughals were reduced to nothing by the Marathas, (as anyone can see what Mughal territory was reduced to under Aurangazeb when Tarabai was controlling Maratha empire), the Afghans (who were then no more Hindus) invaded again, weakening the Maratha hopes against multiple enemies – British, French, Portugese and Muslims.
To say Muslims ruled for 1000 years is absolute bogus.
More than that, the important thing to note is that Muslims gave destruction and barbarism to Hindu Bharat while the latter gave back civilization to the former. The barbarian Babur invaded Bharat and created destruction and immoral killings. But two generations down, Akbar learned a lot of civilized life in India, which can be seen in his profound personality change. So ultimately what needs to be emphasized is that the Muslims are not wrong in merely foisting themselves, but are wrong in thinking they are giving something good to the world – they are the uncivilized people who need to do some learning, some tolerance, pluralism, co-existence and morality.
why does the govt forgets these martyrs and contribution of muslms in freedom when they hang/kill innocent muslims and call them terrorists?
Ashfaqullah Khan, Shahnawaz Khan ( general of Netaji’s Azad Hind Fauj ), Abdul Hamid ( the brave Indian Army general), Kazi Nazrul Islam ( great Bengali poet, extremely nationalistic), Bismillah Khan ( great musician ), Alauddin Khan ( guru of Pandit Ravi Shankar), APJ Abdul Kalam ( who made the nuclear missile for India),Azim Premji.
where are they… ? Ney! there are no where in the history books.. hindu extremist govt.s have removed their names from everywhere…. to show muslims never did anything for India…
But I know.. .Freedom was never possible unless muslims were here. Why didn’t a single hindu during Moghal/Turk invadors rule.. rose up and fought? no.. coz Freedom, Self Respect, Courage, Bravery are only the traits of Muslims…
Ask the govt – it is running on your votebank after all. Do you have the interest in highlighting your positive elements? If you see ten Muslism names in news, they would be Owaisi Bukhari etc and not those of nationalists. So it is for you to figure out what image of your community you present. The onus lies not on others.
“Why didn’t a single hindu during Moghal/Turk invadors rule.. rose up and fought?”
Learn some history and come back. You do not even deserve to be educated by others for the kind of questions you ask. Learn about the Ahoms, Rajputs, Bundels, Sikhs, Marathas, Vijayanagara, Cholas, Chalukyas. Learn why Muslim invaders NEVER had entire Bharata under their rule at any single point of time in history. Learn why your history books openly lie when they say Moguls ruled ‘India’ when they were hardly in possession of half the land under their control for most part. Learn why you are fed with this fake notion of bravery which is actually barbarism. Learn why you are fed with the fake notion of commitment when history is replete with backstabbing and defection of Muslim armies to the invading side – whether it is Vijayanagara of yore or the Kashmir of recent time.
well said dear….absolutely correct!
” Oh Hindustan – We are 25 crores, you are 100 crores. Remove the police for 15 minutes and we will show you who has more courage and strength.

He should remember one thing..Doctors who saved him recently in Care hospital are also from 100 crore community..He is talking as an individual not on behalf of Muslim community as our country has great leaders like Dr.Abdul kalam.. Hope Govt. will take some action on this man..
Should be executed and thrown from the country like an invader

Ranting by a madman. A psychological patient.
10. Reg cow slaughter- He says ” If only they ( Hindus) also eat the beef, they will realise how tasty it is. We are eating it and we love it. We will not compromise ” .
The rest of the world is turning vegetarian while Indian Muslims seek to increase beef eating?! This dude is really behind the times.
Vasudev Mahapatra, Confused Krishna Bhakta from Canada, and Skandaveera, all three are on the right track. Ignoring will stop escalation, West will never turn to Islam, and countering Akabaruddin with facts will not stop him from going on tirades. What is important to focus on is that we cannot turn the wheels of time backwards and have British, Marathas or Muslims rule over India and India is not headed for Theocracy even if BJP wins the elections in 2014. India will remain a democracy and Muslims will serve themselves better to live harmoniously with others
including Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Christians, Parsees, Bahai and other religious groups. Instigating hostilities among groups is divisive politics and the juvenile rage he is instigating will
only lead to meaningless violence to the detriment of minority. Islam is to be practiced as a religion and a spiritual path and not as a political tool. When it is used as a political tool it has only led to suffering of its own people even in the muslim dominated world where the population is perpetually made victim of violence. Overall Akbaruddin is demonstrating poor grasp of history, poor grasp of political savvy, and poor judgement to seek short lived popularity as a demagogue.
The propensity to Islam in the west has several reasons. First, it is the absence of a moral culture and need for some blind faith in common man’s mind which is making them stick to Abrahamic religions. Second. Islam comes close to the monotheistic mindset of the west. So they know the problems in those religions, but have no better options. As Confused Krishna Bhakta from Canada says, Buddhism is the next most suitable candidate going up in the west because of its being the least distant nature from Abrahamic ideologies. On the contrary Hinduism is way more complex, and people often fail to see the difference between religion, social culture, knowledge legacy etc in Hinduism and try to put all these under a monolithic system called Hinduism. Any single religion in Hinduism, can be packaged into something much simpler – an experiment ISKCON did with remarkable success. Of course it has its limitations but the more such experiments happen, and with indirect learning from those limitations, Hindu religions can grow a lot in the west that is looking for “simpler” religions.
For Islam or Christianity, it is not possible to package them into religions by cutting their non-religious parts, because that requires modifications to their primary “revealed” sources – which they cannot afford. On the contrary the oriental systems have a clean distinction between religious and non-religious, revealed and non-revealed etc.
For this exact reason, India was never a theocracy when Hindus ruled. And will not become so if Hindu rashtra forms.
“The propensity to Islam in the west has several reasons.”
There is NO propensity to Islam in the West. There is no large demographic of Westerners converting to Islam. Even the pockets of repackaged neo and quasi African American Islamic groups that sprouted up in the US during the 1960s have increasingly over the years seen more and more Black participants disengage and re-engage with pre-Islamic African Traditional Religions.
Again, when Muslims say “Islam is the fastest growing religion on the planet” they are wrong. The only way it is growing is through having babies. And when those babies grow up, not all of them choose Islam as their adult religion.
“There is NO propensity to Islam in the West. There is no large demographic of Westerners converting to Islam.”
Large demographic changes happen over decades and centuries. Conversions are definitely happening into Islam.
“Even the pockets of repackaged neo and quasi African American Islamic groups that sprouted up in the US during the 1960s have increasingly over the years seen more and more Black participants disengage and re-engage with pre-Islamic African Traditional Religions.”
US is so far immune to Islamic aggression compared to Europe which is more threatened. And partly because US is still largely Christian while Europe’s Christianity is falling faster than US.
In the void created by fading Christianity, Atheism or “no-religion” is not going to survive for long and it depends who is able to claim that ground quicker.
“Again, when Muslims say “Islam is the fastest growing religion on the planet” they are wrong. The only way it is growing is through having babies. And when those babies grow up, not all of them choose Islam as their adult religion.”
Spreading or conversion is not the only way to grow, and as a matter of fact their numbers are growing. The determining question would be what is the rate of conversion out of Islam – I do not see much, whether it is because of threat or ghetto mindset or any other reason. This is another reason Christianity feels threatened.
Islam does not believe in painting an attractive picture to gain converts, in contrast to Christianity. Islam’s tool is fear. It can be fear of Muslim aggression or fear of sin or any other fear they use.
“Large demographic changes happen over decades and centuries. Conversions are definitely happening into Islam. ”
A few unwed single moms convert because they fall in love with “tall dark and handsome” immigrant Muslim men who woo and romance them like no man has ever previously done. These men seek out these plain jane single moms who are not coveted by men from their own society. These small minority of single moms like that Muslims believe in charity and donate to pay the electricity bill of “Sister Kimberly” in order to lure her further into the Islamic community. Once fully converted and married to her “handsome prince” of an immigrant Muslim man, the fairy tale ends and she gradually comes to understand the real purpose of the romance/marriage (green card and points in heaven for converting a kafir). Eventually these women divorce their Muslim husbands and leave Islam. This is the trajectory of “conversion” in the West.
“In the void created by fading Christianity, Atheism or “no-religion” is not going to survive for long and it depends who is able to claim that ground quicker. ”
Its already being claimed by Buddhism and Hinduism.
“This is the trajectory of “conversion” in the West.”
This is a phase, and it is still possible for those women to “leave Islam” because of the state and majority Christianity. The question is how far away is Islam from critical mass (that switches their ways) and whether their numbers are increasing or decreasing. However slow, their increase is consistent. Beyond critical mass you will start seeing that freedom to revert going away.
“Its already being claimed by Buddhism and Hinduism.”
Yes, but very little. Europe has a vast void, where Islam is picking way faster. In US the void is developing quite slowly because Church still holds good control on the state.
“Yes, but very little. Europe has a vast void, where Islam is picking way faster.”
Islam is NOT filling the religious/spiritual void of Europe. Their numbers are rising there due to immigration and having babies, both which depend on government largesse/the welfare state. Well, the money’s going. So should immigration. These small European countries just can no longer afford to keep these foreigners at the expense of their own natives.
These people like Akbaruddin Owaisi and their bad speeches should not be considered worth mentioning but, rather, simply ignored terming as ‘all nonsense’ and just ideas from an unexposed ‘useless’ brain.
No Basudev. Such speeches are potent venom capable of doing immense harm. Such hatemongers must be brought to book to make them understand that they will not go unpunished
“In Hindustan, we (Muslims) ruled for 1000 years and we left our symbols. Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Agra Fort, Qutub Minar, Charminar, Golkonda and hundreds of other symbols. The world comes to Hindustan to see our symbols. The people from the world do not come to see Ram and Krishna Mandirs” .
Bullcrap. Most tourists to India are “spiritual tourists”. They go to the many thousands of yoga ashrams and retreat centers to learn Yoga and meditation. They also go to the many Ayurveda centers to seek treatment and learn Ayurveda. This man does not know what the heck he’s speaking about because he is disconnected from the direction the West is currently taking wherein millions of people are turning to Dharmic traditions like Buddhism, Yoga, Vedanta, Ayurveda, etc.
For the first time ever Protestant Christianity is a minority religion in the US while Buddhism is the fastest growing religion, despite the fact that Muslims like to claim Islam as the West’s fastest growing religion. In Europe the only reason why Islam is growing is because of immigration, not because of adult conversions by native Europeans. In the West, which is includes the American continent and West Europe, Buddhism is the fastest growing organized religion.
Whatever you say is factually correct, none of Akbaruddin’s comments are factually tenable.
But it is only given importance for its intent. Making factual argument against it is giving it unnecessary prominence, for the way public opinion is currently being built in Hyderabad. For instance 1000 year rule – not relevant whether it is factual (it is not), but whether their intentions as a community are shaped to co-exist or to subvert other communities. And so on.
very true. Also in US conversion takes place mainly in prisons…so mostly criminals convert
