Member of Parliament and AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi broke his silence over the arrest notices served on his brother and MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi and said that the latter would surrender and face the cases filed against him once he returned from London.

Speaking at a public meeting in Tandur, Mr. Owaisi said that Akbar would not run away from the law and added that the case would not have been filed had the MIM not withdrawn its support to the Congress government in State.

He said that the MIM was not against Hindus or the country but only against the BJP and the Sangh Parivar. Anything contrary was only the propaganda of the BJP and the Congress, he added.

“If we are communal, what are they? We do not want to learn love for the country from the Babri criminals and those who were responsible for the Gujarat carnage,” Mr. Owaisi said in a derisive tone. “We can shed blood for our country. We are not among those who run away from cases,” he reminded.
