A video of Asaduddin Owaisi has gone viral on social media in which the AIMIM chief is seen threatening the Uttar Pradesh Police.
The video is from a rally in Kanpur that Owaisi had addressed on December 12. In the video clip, Owaisi is heard threatening the UP police personnel over alleged atrocities committed by them against the Muslims. Owaisi warns the police officers that UP CM Yogi Adityanath and PM Modi will not be there to save them once they are out of power.
“I want to remind police officers that they need to know this fact that Yogi and PM Modi will not always be there...We Muslims are definitely compelled according to the times, but remember we are not going to forget your atrocities. We will remember your atrocities. Allah will destroy you with his power. Things will change, then who will come to save you? Yogi will go to his Mutt and Modi to the mountains. Then who will come to save you,” AIMIM chief said.
Slamming Owaisi over his threatening remarks, BJP spokesperson Dr. Sambit Patra said, "Whenever people like Aurangzeb and Babar step on this land, heroes like Shivaji, Maharana Pratap, and Modi-Yogi will stand against them."
Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the 'criminal and communal mindset' of such people will never be accepted in India.
Owaisi, however, clarified on Friday that only a 1-min video clip was being circulated from his speech that was 45-minute long. Sharing the full video of his speech, Owaisi claimed that he did not incite any kind of violence.

"In order to distract from #HaridwarGenocidalMeet, a clipped 1 min video is being circulated from 45 min speech I gave in Kanpur. I’ll set the record straight: 1. I did not incite violence or give threats. I talked about POLICE ATROCITIES Here’s the full video in TWO PARTS," Owaisi wrote in a series of tweets.
