As the inauguration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya draws near, All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi issued a fervent call to the youth of the Muslim community.
Owaisi urged them to remain watchful of the activities of the BJP-led Centre and voiced concerns over the historical loss of the Babri Masjid.
"Young people, I am telling you, we have lost our Masjid and you are seeing what is being done there. Don't you have pain in your hearts?" Owaisi expressed during a programme in Bhavani Nagar, as reported by Livemint.
He emphasised the need for mosques to remain inhabited and cautioned against potential conspiracies targeting mosques.
Owaisi's appeal comes in the context of concerns regarding the notice issued by the New Delhi Municipal Council regarding the proposed demolition of the Sunehri Bagh mosque.
He argued that such actions violated constitutional provisions, including Article 25, which guarantees freedom of religion.
Owaisi also accused the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of displaying hostility toward Muslims, mosques, and the call to prayer.
He called on the youth to think about how they can contribute to their families, cities, and neighbourhoods.
"Unity is a strength, unity is a blessing," Owaisi emphasised.
