Hyderabad Desk

A day after Hindutva workers protested against Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi over his ‘Jai Palestine’ slogan, members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal burnt an effigy with Owaisi’s face in front of his residence in Delhi at 34 Ashoka Road on Sunday, June 30.

‘Jai Palestine’

Owaisi, while taking his oath as the Member of Parliament raised ‘Jai Palestine’ slogans along with ‘Jai MIM, Jai BHIM, Jai Telangana and Takbeer Allah hu Akbar‘.

This did not go well with the BJP and their Hindutva supporters. Many protested against Owaisi raising placards with pictures of Owaisi’s face on a pig. The posters read ‘Palestine ke samardhak Palestine jao‘, which translates to “Supporter of Palestine go to Palestine.”
