Actor Ajaz Khan who is out on bail released a Facebook video praising Prime Minister Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for releasing innocent Muslims lodged in jails by Congress government.
In the video uploaded on Friday (26 July), Khan said, “We have to be truthful here. There is one issue on, which we should applaud the BJP. I don’t agree with their ‘Jai Shri Ram’ sloganeering or politics over ‘Triple Talaq’ which is obviously wrong but we should praise the BJP government, especially Narendra Modi ji and Amit Shah ji who have released many innocent Muslims languishing in the jails since the last 15-20 years when Congress was in power.”
Khan also thanked the Modi-Shah duo for justice. “Thanks to Amit Shah Ji and Narendra Modi ji for justice,” he wrote on Facebook.
“It will be our duplicity if we ask BJP for justice for the wrongs done by the Congress regime. Congress had declared them as terrorists without any proof and lodged them in jails. The BJP should be credited for the release of these innocent Muslims. 5 were released from Jaipur, 3-4 from Kashmir, some from Ahmedabad. BJP could have held them in captivity but they have released them. This is the good work that BJP and PM Modi has done, ” he added.
In another video released by him, Khan criticised Muslim politicians for not supporting him. “My message is for Assaduddin Owaisi, Azam Khan, Waris Pathan, Hashmi ji and all other such politicians,” he said.
“I did what these politicians routinely do in the parliament. I spoke about issues what Assaduddin Owaisi, Akbaruddin Owaisi, Hashmi and other Muslim leaders raise, yet I was harassed by the police. I was arrested. I had to pay a security of Rs 1 lakh to secure bail. Apart from this, every day I have to go and report to the police station,” he added.
