Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday lampooned Maharashtra Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse for his comments on banning his party, saying the latter was hypnotised by Sanatan Sanstha teachings.
"Eknath Khadse seems to have been hypnotised by the teachings of Sanatan Sanstha. Eknathji perhaps chooses to forget that Sanatan Sanstha doesn't believe in the Indian Constituion. The AIMIM on other hand, does believe in it," claimed Owaisi.
"They (Sanatan Sansthan) doesn't believe in the electoral system of our country, they believe in the caste (Varna) system, but the AIMIM believes in the Constitution and is devoted to fight for the rights of minorities and backwards," he added.
Owais also said that Khadse is compelled to shield people from the Sanatan Sansthan because he himself belongs to it.
"By giving these kinds of remarks the cabinet minister is hinting that the accused is not guilty, and you will see that after 90 days, he would get the bail," he added.
Khadse had earlier compared the AIMIM to the Sanatan Sanstha, and said if organisations could be banned without evidence, then the AIMIM would have to be banned as well.
