Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (MIM) leader and MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday said he was 'sure' that no action would be taken against Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Praveen Togadia for his alleged hate speech made near Adilabad district in Andhra Pradesh recently.
"I am sure no action will be taken. Even if action is taken severity of law will not be used against him," said Asaduddin Owaisi.
Notably, Asaduddin Owaisi´s brother MIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi is in jail for his recent hate speech against Hindus in Andhra Pradesh.
Togadia himself reacted angrily when asked about his alleged hate speech and told a reporter that he is not a journalist with integrity.
In his speech, Togadia allegedly attacked Akbaruddin Owaisi and Muslims in general.
The video of his speech has gone viral on the internet.
A police complaint has been filed against the leader in Hyderabad.
The police said they are verifying the video on the basis of which the complaint was filed; no case has been field so far.
