Owaisi hate speech: This is not the first time

Akbaruddin Owaisi might be hogging the headlines for his  recent highly inflammatory speech but this is the not the first time that the Owaisis are courting controversy.

Asaduddin Owaisi - Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad and Akbaruddin Owaisi - MLA are known for routine inflammatory speeches in and outside their respective constituencies. Watch the video above for a quick round of their controversial speeches.

Akrabuddin recently went on a tirade against the Hindus in a speech full of hatred in Adilabad. But even before this the Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen MLA has incited hatred. In this video, he said “We in Hyderabad want to behead this woman according to the fatwa,” when Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen had come to Hyderabad.

His elder brother, Asasuddudin is not to be left far behind. Though he has toned down after becoming an MP, it did not stop him from declaring that Salman Rushdie should be arrested for writing books that seemingly desecrate the sanctity of Islam.
