BJP MLA hits out at Owaisi on Bhagyalakshmi temple issue

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

BJP MLA in Telangana Raja Singh on Wednesday hit out at AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi over his asking the Archaeological Survey of India to take action on the Bhagyalakshmi temple abutting the Charminar here.

The BJP leader said not only Hindus but also Muslims accept the Bhagyalakshmi temple.

Those who come to worship at the shrine buy flowers and fruits from Muslims, he said.

There is one Ayodhya and if any one raised eyes at this temple, another Ayodhya would come up in Telangana, he said, adding that the Bhagyalakshmi temple is a question of faith for Hindus.

Asked if he would take up the issue with the Archaeological Survey of India allegedly maintaining that the temple was an encroachment, Owaisi had recently said: Let the ASI take action.

Let BJP take action, they are in power. Will ASI take action, or will they act as the handmaiden of Hindutva? Owaisi had said.
