Act against those who attacked Kashmir MLA: Owaisi

Hyderabad, Oct 8 (IANS) AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday sought action against BJP legislators who attacked an independent legislator in the Jammu and Kashmir assembly for hosting a beef party.

Owaisi said the thrashing of Engineer Rashid and the attempt on his life in the assembly was highly condemnable.

The Hyderabad MP said the lawmaker had done nothing wrong. “In my view, he had not done anything illegal. The Supreme Court has stayed the beef ban. He had brought cooked food from outside.”

The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president wondered what kind of governance was there in Kashmir where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) shares power with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

He lashed out at PDP for its failure to provide protection to a member of assembly in the house.

“What type of goondaism is this? What message are we giving in the valley and to those who are working for peace in Kashmir?” asked Owaisi.

The MP hoped that assembly and the government will take strong action against the guilty and provide protection to Engineer Rashid.
