Karimnagar district court on Thursday (1 July) directed the police to file an FIR against AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi on charges of delivering a hate speech against RSS, India Today has reported.

In the speech delivered on 23 July at Karimnagar, Owaisi had claimed that “the RSS people were yet to recover from his ’15 minutes’ speech which he had delivered in 2013”.

Owaisi was referring to his infamous speech back in 2013 when he had boasted that if police were removed in India for 15 minutes, Muslims would finish off 100 crore Hindus.

The latest speech drew a sharp protest from the BJP and various Hindu groups which demanded strict action against the brother of incumbent AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi.

The Karimnagar police though initially refused to register an FIR against Owaisi and gave a clean chit, as a result of which a BJP affiliated lawyer had approached the court in the matter.

After analysing the matter, the judge directed the cops to book Owaisi under sections 153A, 153B and 506 pertaining to promoting enmity between various groups, actions prejudicial to national-integration and criminal intimidation.
