New Delhi: AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday stated that Union Home Minister Amit Shah openly ‘defended’ the Delhi Police in the Lok Sabha whereas replying to the controversy on Delhi violence.
“He has openly defended the Delhi Police, though the riots took place because of the Delhi Police only. He has proudly said that the communal carnage was stopped in 36 hours,” he advised ANI.
“There is only one reason behind defending the Delhi Police that he (Amit Shah) doesn’t want that justice should be given to especially those Muslims who have lost their lives, whose houses were set ablaze. No justice will be done after Amit Shah’s reply today,” he added.
Owaisi stated that identical to the Sikhs didn’t get justice in the 1984 riots, the Muslims who died in the Delhi riots will not get justice.
“We had demanded that one commission should be set up under the Inquiries Act, to be headed by a sitting Supreme Court or High Court judge, that was also denied. What will the SIT do? One-sided arrests are taking place in Delhi. Over 1100 Muslims are in illegal detention,” stated Owaisi.
“Moreover, he did not talk about his MPs. He did not talk about Kapil Mishra. As far as Waris Pathan is concerned, he has taken his comments back. FIR is registered against him. But has any FIR been registered against Anurag Thakur or Kapil Mishra? The government is trying to save them. The country is watching it,” he added.
Earlier, Shah lauded the Delhi Police for not permitting the riots to unfold to the opposite areas of the town.
