Akbaruddin Owaisi arrested in hate speech case

08 January, 2013

HYDERABAD: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi, who is facing multiple cases for his alleged ” hate speech”, was on Tuesday arrested by Andhra Pradesh police, TV channels reported.

Earlier, Owaisi was taken to a government hospital here for medical examination after he failed to appear before police and sought more time citing ill-health.
A police escort team reached the MLA’s house at Banjara Hills and took him to the Gandhi Hospital here, deputy commissioner of police (west zone) G Sudhir Babu said.
Earlier, on Tuesday morning the Nirmal rural police at Adilabad district issued a notice to Akbaruddin to make himself present for the medical examination.
Investigating officer A Raghu had found Akbaruddin fit enough to face police inquiry in connection with the case filed against him for the alleged provocative speech.
However, the MIM legislator had informed that he was suffering from pain and had sought four days time to appear before the Nirmal police for questioning.
After this, the police had on Monday night decided that he will be subjected to medical examination on Tuesday.
“In view of his medical examination police issued a notice to him to come to the Gandhi Hospital where government doctors will carry out his medical examination. Once the medical test is complete, a certificate will be issued and based on it further course of action will be taken,” another senior police officer said.
For security reasons, a police escort accompanied him. Akbaruddin has already been issued notices to appear before Nizamabad Police today and also before the Osmania University Police on January 10 in connection with the further probe into the cases registered against him.
Owaisi has already approached the Andhra Pradesh high court seeking to quash all the FIRs registered against him at different police stations in the state.
Meanwhile, mild tension prevailed outside the Gandhi Hospital as scores of supporters of Akbaruddin Owaisi assembled near the premises and raised anti-government slogans.
A five-member medical team led by a cardiologist conducted the medical check-up of Owaisi at the hospital.
Additional security forces were also deployed in parts of the Old City as a precautionary measure following speculation that Owaisi would be arrested after his medical tests.
Gandhi Hospital superintendent Dr S Mahbub said medical examination of Akbaruddin was conducted by a team of five doctors.
According to medical report, MIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi has adhesions and hernia in abdomen and he can’t walk long distances, TV channels reported.
“A bullet is there on the lower side of his back,” the medical superintendent said. A rival group “attacked” Akbaruddin in April 2011 over a land dispute issue in Barkas area here. He had sustained bullet injuries in the attack.
Meanwhile, protests and demonstrations continued by BJP workers and VHP members at Indira Park and Alwal here and in Adilabad and Nizamabad districts demanding immediate arrest of Owaisi.
BJP Nizambad MLA Lakshmi Naryana led a demonstration in Nizamabad and alleged that government was going soft in initiating action against Akbaruddin.
Police removed the tents from the dharna camp in Nirmal town when BJP activists tried to hold a dharna.
In a related development, Nizamabad Police imposed prohibitory orders in Nizambad town as Owaisi was supposed to appear before them today following issuance of notices in connection with the case booked against him by Nizambad II Town police for his alleged provocative speeches.
One of the counsels of Akbaruddin made a representation to the Nizamabad Police and handed over a letter seeking four-day time for appearance of his client before them, a senior police officer said, adding the request has been sent for legal scrutiny and further decision will depend on it.

The complete speech of Dr Mohan ji Bhagwat at Indore, Silchar programme

Mohanji Speech at Indor Sanghik

In last Three days, there were two attempts by media to present distorted facts about the sayings of Ma. Mohan ji Bhagwat.

The first was a controversy- “rapes happen in India and not in Bharat, says Bhagwat.”

Actually in a Question-answer session at a program of for invited citizens in Silchar, Assam, on 31st December 2012. In response to a specific query where the questioner quoted ‘India’, Mohan ji replied. The complete question and its answer is available in video from at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGu8nNLfpyE

It has received more than 1,000 views in last two days. The verbatim text of this Question and answer is available at डा. मोहन भागवत ने वास्तव में क्या कहा?

The second was more perverted reporting like “ Bhagwat says women should stay at home” or “Bhagwat says marriage is a contract”. Media reported it along with the report of mammoth gathering of Malwa prant giving impression that this speech was part of the big program.

Actually it was a program to inaugurate the Yog Vidya Peeth of Swami Pramanand. The program was on 5thJanuary 2013. Ma. Mohanji was explaining the difference between western and Bharatiya world views. The complete speech is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuFUsdTVHY4&feature=youtu.be

The relevant part of the speech and Ma. Manmohan ji Vaidya’s statement is available at
डा. भागवत के वक्तव्यों को ठीक तरह से पेश करें मीडिया : मनमोहन वैद्य

BY the prompt action of Sangh Adhikaris and Prachar Vibhag and VSKs, many media houses did a mid-course correction. TIMES NOW published the actual video of the relevant part.
