Mumbai, Pretr: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Friday said that AIMIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi has insulted nationalist Muslims by glorifying Aurangzeb. Telangana MLA Owaisi on Thursday offered ‘chadar’ and flowers to the tomb of 17th century Mughal emperor Aurangzeb at Khuldabad in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad district.

Fadnavis said that Owaisi has done nationalist Muslims his own by trying to glorify Aurangzeb. Aurangzeb can never be a role model for the Muslims of the country. Aurangzeb had Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s son Sambhajiraje killed after inflicting severe torture. Fadnavis said that we will not tolerate glorification of Aurangzeb in any way. Action should be taken against those who do this.

Referring to the MRI picture of MP Navneet Rana at Lilavati Hospital, the BJP leader said that if someone takes a picture, the state government starts taking immediate action, but it has not done anything in this matter.

Will also bury Aurangzeb’s fans in the ground: Raut

Shiv Sena spokesperson and MP Sanjay Raut said that Owaisi’s visit to Aurangzeb’s grave is an attempt to spoil the atmosphere in the state. He said, ‘We had buried Aurangzeb in the soil of Maharashtra and the same will be the fate of his fans.’ Raut said that Aurangzeb was an invader who attacked Maharashtra and destroyed temples. The Owaisi brothers have challenged the Maharashtra government by offering prayers at his grave. We accept this challenge.
