SP MLA on burqa-clad girl assaulted in Aurangabad
SP MLA Abu Azmi has sparked controversy over the Aurangabad incident where a group of men harassed a Muslim girl and pulled her hijab for talking to a non-Muslim man.
Azmi, while talking to a TV news channel said that he will urge people in his community to tell their daughters to not marry people of other religion.
Azmi condemns the incident
However, he said that the incident of “misbehavior” is condemnable.
Attacking RSS and other “communal elements” Azmi alleged that such organizations are responsible for spreading hatred against Muslims in society in the name of Love Jihad and whatever has happened in Aurangabad is a outcome of that.
“Beti Bachao, Bahu lao”
In addition to this, while talking to another prominent news channel, Azmi said, “The govt has only shown Muslims in a bad light….their Beti Bachao, Bahu lao campaign is against Muslim girls…”
Details of the Incident
As per the video that has now gone viral, a college-going girl wearing a burqa was seen talking to a man of another religion when some youth stopped her and asked why she was walking and talking with a boy of another community.
The police identified the woman through the video and asked her to lodge a complaint. However, she refused, and so the police have initiated the process to register a suo motu complaint.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Deepak Girhe, stated that the police are taking action and have detained the three men involved in the incident.
