'84, 2002 will get repeated: Owaisi

MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday feared that major riots would rock the country as what happened in “1984 and 2002“.

Owaisi was referring to the anti-Sikh riots which shook the country in 1984 and the 2002 postGodhra riots which claimed hundreds of lives, most of them Muslim, in Gujarat, at a time when current Prime Minister served as state's CM. What has happened in'84 and 2002 can happen again because of pressure from the media and NGOs.

He was speaking at the launch of the Dilli 1984 Nundi Gujarat 2002 Varaku: Vyavasthala Vaiphalyam pao Panchnama at La Makaan. Emphasizing that the police must be independent of the executive, Owaisi said that no amount of media pressure or criticism from non-governmental organisations could prevent such incidents from happening.

“But believe me this can happen again. Unless the police force is detached from the executive and is made independent and accountable, believe me it is going to happen again. It takes a small incident to fire up a whole issue and it is very unfortunate,“ he said.
