Press Statements

Mushawarat condemns the attack on Owaisi’s house

New Delhi, 9 January 2013: Dr. Zafarul-Islam Khan, President of All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, said here today in a press statement that the attack by Sangh Parivar goons on the official residence of Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen Member of Parliament, Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi, is highly condemnable. While it shows the rogue nature of the Sanghis, it also betrays the callous and collaborator nature of Delhi Police which failed to prevent as well as arrest the attacking goons who fearlessly moved around in a high security zone attacking and ransacking the house at Ashoka Road of an important leader and spokesman of the Indina Muslim community. Media was able to cover but blackout the attack while the Police remained blissfully unaware despite all the CCTV cameras in the area.

Dr. Khan has written to the Delhi Police Commissioner asking him to take immediate action against the saffron goons and the police officers who allowed the attack to take place and failed to nab the criminals.



Text of the AIMMM President letter to the Delhi Police Commissioner

9 January 2013

Police Commissioner


Yesterday evening, Sangh Parivar goons, identified in some media reports as elements belonging to the Bajrang Dal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Vishwa Hindu Sena, attacked the official residence of the Majlis Ittehadul Muslimin Member of Parliament and an important leader of the Muslim community, Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi. They damaged furniture, MIM hoarding as well as painted walls black. This all happened at Ashoka Road in Delhi’s most sensitive zone which is awash with CCTV cameras and Police vans yet your officers not only failed to prevent the attack but also failed to arrest the criminals. This shows your force in a bad light both as unprepared and possibly in cahoots with the saffron criminals.

Kindly take urgent action both against the saffron criminals as well as against the police officers who were found wanting in discharging their duties.

Yours sincerely

Dr. Zafarul-Islam Khan
President, All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat
