Akbaruddin Owaisi should publicly withdraw his remarks: Lok Satta

Lok Satta Party welcomed the government’s decision to book criminal cases against Akbaruddin Owaisi for the alleged hate speeches.

“It is unfortunate that responsible people’s representatives often use offensive language calculated to arouse religious or other sectarian animosities, and incite communities and groups to violence and hatred. Such behaviour by anyone, however high he may be, should be unequivocally condemned by all sections of society. Lok Satta Party urges The Speaker of the AP Legislative Assembly to take note of the incidents and initiate proceedings against the individuals for breach of ethics and for conduct unbecoming of the Member” said the Party state general secretary Mr. Katari Srinivasa Rao in media statement today.

He urged Akbharuddin Owaisi to publicly withdraw his communal and provocative remarks and take all necessary action in a demonstrable manner to prevent communal disaffection, and to promote peace and harmony among all sections.

“India is a home to all conceivable religions, and many castes, languages, regions and cultures. We will remain as a nation only if all of us, particularly elected representatives and parties, recognize that the nation is an indivisible whole. Mutual respect, restraint, harmony, equality before law, constitutionalism, and secularism must be the cornerstones of our individual and collective behaviour. Lok Satta Party appeals to all sections of the public to maintain dignity and peace, and not to be provoked in any manner by irresponsible, sectarian utterances calculated to create divisions in society”, said Mr. Katari Srinivasa Rao.
