Strongly Condemning RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks that the Sangh could “prepare” a military force faster than the Army, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday said that if Bhagwat believes so, then he should stand in front of the LoC and lead the Army.
“If that is what he (Bhagwat) seriously believes, then he should lead and stand in front of the LoC and border,” Owaisi said, adding that how could the RSS chief compare his cadre with the Indian Army.
“How can a cultural organisation train cadres as an army? Is he trying to say that they are (more) efficient than the Army? This statement has to be looked into very deeply. No cadre can be compared with our Indian Army… This is a very grave statement which has a lot of messages, repercussions, and ramifications,” he said.
“Does he know what goes into the making of an Indian soldier and how bravely our soldiers are laying down their lives?” the MP asked.
The Hyderabad MP also attacked the government for “not learning lessons” from terror attacks on army installations in the past.
The so-called “9 pm” nationalists (those who appear in prime time tv debates) question the nationalism of Muslims and Kashmiri Muslims, Owaisi said here.
“In this (Sunjuwan attack) incident, five Kashmiri Muslims have laid down their lives. Why aren’t you talking about it? This is a reminder to all those nationalists who question my integrity and the love for this country,” the AIMIM chief said.
