Hyderabad, July 26: Three days after All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi attacked the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), stating that the party has not been able to overcome his "15 minutes" remark, workers of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal filed a complaint against him. The complaint against Akbaruddin Owaisi is filed with Sultan Bazar police station in Hyderabad.

In the complaint, VHP and Bajrang Dal workers said Owaisi, through his speech which he delivered on Tuesday, insulted Hindus and instigated Muslims. In 2013, Owaisi had said removing police for fifteen minutes would be enough to balance the Hindu-Muslim ratio in the country. Referring to the controversial statement, Owaisi said he's being targetted because the RSS couldn't get over his "15 minutes" remark.

"People scare those who get scared easily and are scared of those who know how to scare them. Why do they (RSS) hate me? It is because they have not been able to overcome the '15 minutes' statement made by me," Owaisi, who represents Chandrayangutta constituency in Telangana Assembly, said while addressing a gathering. He went on to urge those present in the gathering to unite and defeat BJP. Asaduddin Owaisi Blames Congress for Making Laws Like UAPA.

"There was a time when Deputy Mayor of Nizamabad was from AIMIM, but now BJP has a lawmaker in Nizamabad. If you do not want the AIMIM to win, it is okay, but defeat BJP," the AIMIM legislator said. He asserted that the BJP leader who won the Nizamabad parliamentary seat may occupy the post of Mayor. Owaisi further appealed to the Muslim community to come together and stand strong, adding that if they fail to do so, BJP may win the municipality election.
