Asaduddin Owaisi ‘prophesied’ Hyderabad blasts?

Post Noon, 25th February, 2013

MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi’s acerbic speech on December 2, warning about the game that was to start in the City after January, is being poured over by intelligence.

Did the MIM president and MP, Asaduddin Owaisi, forewarn the City about the blasts on Thursday that killed 18 and injured 117? Now, the City intelligence and NIA are reportedly examining his 15- minute speech at his party headquarters (Darussalam) on December 2, in which he had warned of a ‘khel’ (game) to begin after January.

After the twin blasts in Dilsukhnagar, whose links are extended to Indian Mujahideen, his speech exhorting his community to avenge the “perceived injustice” to them rings ominous, said a senior police officer in the City. He told Postnoon that the CD of his speech was being screened for deeper meaning.

“January ke baad dekho kya khel tamashe hote hain… Abhi tho warm up ho raha hain. Aap humse pahle khel liye achcha kiye… (Wait and see what happens after January. Now is just a warm up. Good you started the game before us).

Police sources said his 15- minute speech was full of hatred toward another community. The vile words used against another community leader and lampooning the police intelligence and the chief minister did not behove a person who claims to lead a political party, which is the ruling partner at the GHMC.

It is known that the Owaisi brothers broke the bonhomie with the Congress after the chief minister asked the police to play neutral in the temple-Charminar issue. Ever since, the two have used calculated, harsh words to defame the chief minister. They have since branded him communal.

Owaisi’s speech was on the occasion of the meeting called to observe the Babri Masjid Day. In his speech, which went on air and on the internet soon after, clearly instigates communities to take up arms against the other. On the other hand, the same leader put up a straight face after the blasts to express “his solidarity” with the government “in times of crisis” and advocated strict action against the perpetrators of crime.

Which of the two is the true Owaisi is the question many political observers are asking.

It is relevant to mention that BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu said at the Rajya Sabha after the blasts that the Delhi Police had placed on record the terror getting “local helps” in Hyderabad, and specifically mentioned a local political party extending patronage to the terror modules.

Meanwhile, the police have interrogated five youths, including four MIM workers on Sunday in connection with the blasts. They are: Abdul Raheem, Abdul Kareem, Shaik Azmath, Mohd Rayeesuddin and another one. Of them, police have interrogated Rayeesuddin today for his alleged complicity in the blasts.
