AIMIM supremo Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday took a swipe at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over her recent remarks on the Hindu militant outfit Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in which she said “RSS wasn’t that bad earlier.”
“RSS wasn’t that bad earlier. I don’t think they (RSS) are that bad. Still, there are many good people in RSS and they don’t support BJP. They will also break their silence one day,” TMC chief Banerjee can be heard saying.
Owaisi said RSS has a history “full of anti-Muslim hate crime” and that he hopes the “Muslim faces” of TMC will praise Banerjee for her “honesty and consistency”.
Owaisi also recalled how the West Bengal CM had heaped praise on the Hindu nationalist outfit while attending an RSS programme in 2003.
“In 2003 too Mamata had called RSS “patriots”. In turn RSS had called her “Durga”. RSS wants Hindu Rashtra. Its history is full of anti-Muslim hate crime. She’d defended BJP govt in Parliament after Gujarat pogrom. Hope TMC’s “Muslim faces” praise her for her honesty & consistency,” Owaisi tweeted.
