New Delhi:

India Should not be Governed by Sentiments, Says Owaisi


All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President, Asaduddin Owaisi said that India should be governed according to the Constitution and rule of law, not by sentiments of majority/minority, which will lead to anarchy.

“India should be governed according to Constitution, Rule of Law & NOT Sentiments of Majority /Minority which will lead to Anarchy @CMOfficeUP Fundamental Right to Life Article 21 is for Human Beings ( which includes Muslims also) hope you understand,” he tweeted.

Owaisi’s tweet comes after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that humans and cows were equally important, and claimed that incidents of lynching were being given unnecessary importance.

“We will provide protection to everyone, but it is also the responsibility of every individual, every community and every religion to respect each other sentiments. Humans are important and cows are also important. Both have their own roles in nature. Everyone should be protected,” Adityanath told media.

The incidents of mob lynching have been on a rise in the country.

As per the Ministry of Home Affairs data, 45 people were killed in 40 different cases across nine states between 2014 and 3 March 2018.

The apex court, last week, directed the Parliament to frame a special law to put a check on crimes like lynching.

The Centre then informed the Lok Sabha that it had constituted a high-level committee under Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba to deliberate and make recommendations for a separate penal provision on incidents of mob violence.

The committee helmed by Gauba will submit its report to a Group of Ministers (GoM) governed by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
