Akbaruddin Owaisi's 'hate speech' is not first such speech
Akbaruddin Owaisi, Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA is known for his inflammatory speeches but this time his hate speech has crossed the limit, and can even damage MIM as never before. On 24 December 2012, Akbaruddin Owaisi gave a speech at Nirmal, Adilabad district, about 200 kms from Hyderabad. This hate speech by him went viral on the Internet, and different sections of the society across the country condemned it, and are demanding stringent action against Akbaruddin Owaisi.

AKBARUDDIN OWAISI is an Indian politician from Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. He was born on 14 June, 1970, to Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi. He is the younger brother of Asaduddin Owaisi, who is a Member of Parliament and represents the Hyderabad constituency. Akbaruddin Owaisi started his political career as a deputy to his elder brother, who was then leading the MIM party.

In 2004, he became the floor leader of MIM party in Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly for Chanrayanagutta constituency. He was again re-elected in 2009. Akbaruddin Owaisi is also the Managing Director of Owaisi hospital, which was set up by his late father for the welfare of Muslims.

Akbaruddin Owaisi always makes notorious comments in his speeches, but in his recent speech where he addressed a huge rally of Muslims in Nirmal town for two hours, he made several derogatory and provocative comments against Hindus deities, Narendra Modi, BJP, Vishwa Hindu parishad, India and the United States of America. He compared Narendra Modi with Ajmal Kasab, and questioned that when Ajmal Kasab had been hanged then why not Narendra Modi? He also made several derogatory comments on Lord Rama and his mother Kaushalya.

Akbaruddin Owaisi is being criticized by several organizations, notable people and social activists for his controversial speech. The speech also sparked outrage on Twitter, and the Twitterati are demanding rigorous action against him. Political analysts are saying that the speech given by Akbaruddin Owaisi at Nirmal have greatly damaged the image of MIM party. This proves that MIM leaders are still living in an older generation and are unaware of the social, political and technological growth in the country. This incident also gave an impression that such leaders cannot lead the country, reported The Times of India.

In 2007, Owaisi had threatened to act on the fatwa to kill Salman Rushdie and behead Taslima Nasreen if any one of them ever visited the city of Hyderabad.

He has also been involved in a viscious property clash in which he was shot three times and stabbed in the stomach in 2009. Immediately after giving his 'hate speech', Owaisi left for London to get medical treatment for the wounds he received due to the knifing.
