Owaisi’s official residence in Delhi attacked by Hindutva goons

New Delhi: Hyderabad Member of Parliament and Majlis Itehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi’s official residence on the Ashoka Road in New Delhi was attacked by Hindutva goons in the evening of 8 January. Goons reportedly belonging to Bajrang Dal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Vishwa Hindu Sena stormed the residency of Owaisi, elder brother of Akbaruddin Owaisi, in New Delhi’s top security zone and vandalized the furniture. No policeman was there to stop them or even arrest them later. A complaint was reportedly lodged against unknown persons. Protestors raised vulgar slogans against Owaisi brothers, painted the walls black and destroyed the Majlis hoarding as well as the wooden grill on the wall. They were chased away by Owaisi’s servant Raju and his son while Owaisi himself was in Hyderabad.

The attack took place in the early evening hours in an area continously patrolled by the police vans and covered by umpteen CCTV cameras.

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 also 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.
