New Delhi: Asaduddin Owaisi, the President of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and a Lok Sabha MP has attacked Prime Minister Modi asking what was he doing when Ehsan Jafri was being butchered. A former Lok Sabha MP and a versatile Progressive Urdu poet, Jafri was killed in cold-blooded manner by right wing Hindus during Gujarat riots 2002. Dosens of other people were butcherd. His wife Zakia Jafri survived to tell the world about the macabre killing.
The comment from Hyderabad MP came in response to Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘raincoat’ remark on his predecessor Dr Manmohan Singh. Owaisie, a firebrand MP questioned Modi’s role in the 2002 Gulbarg Society massacre when he was Gujarat’s chief minister. Owaisi took to his twitter handle to condemn the Prime Minister for his comment. “If ex PM MMS was wearing raincoat in Bathroom may I ask PM Modi what where you wearing CM Gujarat when Ehsan Jafri & others where butchered (sic),” Owaisi tweeted.
An outraged Congress on Wednesday staged a walkout from the Rajya Sabha when Prime Minister Modi trained guns on Singh, accusing him of letting corruption run free under his nose but managing to steer clear of any charges. “Dr. Manhmohan has played a significant role in the economic system of India. But during the most corrupt regime in the nation, there was not a single corruption charge against him. This art of taking bath wearing a raincoat must be learnt from Manmohan Singh,” the Prime Minister said, setting off cries of outrage by the Congress.
However, the former prime minister maintained his trademark calm and simply chose not to respond to questions over the Prime Minister’s statemen
