Okhla MLA and Aam Admi Party leader Amanatullah Khan has said that his party colleague Tahir Hussain was being punished today because he is a Muslim adding that perhaps being a Muslim was the biggest crime in India.
He further said that in the next few days it will be established that Hussain was the one who orchestrated violence in North-East Delhi.
His tweet came just a day after Hussain was arrested by the Delhi Police.
He wrote in Hindi, “Tahir Hussain is being punished today simply because he’s Muslim. Perhaps being a Muslim is the biggest punishment in India. It’s possible that it will be established in the coming days that the entire Delhi violence was orchestrated by him.”
The AAP had suspended Hussain from the party soon after he was named an accused.
Hussain has always said that he was not present at his house when the anti-Muslim carnage engulfed a large part of the North-East Delhi resulting in the killings of more than 50 people.
He also said that he had sought help from the police for the safety of his family before leaving his house on 24 February.
