Razakars went to Pakistan, Wafadars stayed in India: Owaisi

AIMIM leader and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday said it is a matter of happiness and great pride that Hyderabad became a part of India in 1948. "We do not need a loyalty certificate from the RSS and BJP, both were not there in the 1857 freedom struggle and at the time of the annexation of Hyderabad in India," he said. Recalling the Nizam's contribution, Mr. Owaisi said he had donated money to many temples, including the Madan Mohan Malviya's Banares Hindu University. "We all, including state BJP leaders, drank Gandipet's water, and many of them went to Osmania Hospital for treatment. Both were constructed by the Nizam Osman Ali Khan," he said. Nizam gave money to translate the Mahabharat and for the Ajanta Ellora caves. He was the first in the world who commissioned the editing of the Quran's first English translation, Mr. Owaisi said. "There were other princely states in India. Did anyone do such welfare work? Is it not a fact that the king of Gwalior had rebelled against Jhansi's queen?" he questioned. He continued, "I am neither appreciating nor praising the Nizam. It is a historical fact, and history cannot be changed by you or me. I know PM Modi does not like the Mughals but he unfurls the flag at the Red Fort. They do not like Mughals but they like Taj Mahal," the MIM chief said.
