AIMIM disassociates itself from controversial speeches: Jaleel

Aurangabad, Feb 21 (UNI) Replying to questions about the alleged hate speeches made by his party members, AIMIM MP from Aurangabad and Maharashtra president of the party Imtiyaz Jaleel on Friday said the party disassociates itself from such incidents.
Addressing a news conference here, MP Jaleel sought to distance himself from the alleged hateful remarks made by party's former MLA Waris Pathan, saying that he does not support Mr Pathan and pointed out that his views did not reflect the party's official stand.
He went on to ask why BJP leaders were not booked for their hateful speeches and hate mongering in the society.
Asked about chanting of slogans in favour of Pakistan by a girl student from the dais shared by AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi in Bangalore, he condemned the incident and termed it as 'unfortunate'.
He reiterated that AIMIM disassociates itself from these incidents and said the programme in Bengaluru, where the alleged incident took place, was organised by the ally JD (S) and not by AIMIM.

Mr Jaleel asked, "Why were not BJP leaders such as Parvesh Verma, Anurag Thakur and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath booked for their hateful speeches and hate mongering in the society?"
He also questioned the role of media and accused the media of harbouring such leaders and not asking for any clarifications from them.
The AIMIM MP said the law of land is same for everyone and declared that he does not require certificate of patriotism from anyone.
He urged the people of Aurangabad to vote for the right candidates, irrespective of their religion, caste and beliefs, in the coming civic elections.
The party is ready to campaign for a group of people, who form the Citizens Forum to contest in the civic elections, he added.
