Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], May 7 (ANI): All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday condemned the honour killing incident that took place in Saroornagar in Telangana and termed it as a "criminal act" as per constitution and Islam.
While addressing the public in Hyderabad, Telangana, he said, "We condemn the (honour killing) incident that took place in Saroornagar. The woman willingly decided to get married. Her brother doesn't have any right to kill her husband. It's a criminal act as per constitution & the worst crime as per Islam."
"This incident is being given another colour since yesterday. Didn't the Police here arrest the accused immediately? They have arrested him. We do not stand with the murderers," he added.
While talking about communal violence incidents in Jahangirpuri and Khargone, he said, "I want to say that whichever religious procession is taken out, there should be high resolution CCTV put up on the Mosque and whenever there is a procession moving, then it should be live telecast on Facebook so that the world should know who is throwing stones."
Earlier on Thursday, Hyderabad's Saroornagar police arrested two relatives of Ashrin Sulthana alias Pallavi for their involvement in the murder of Billipuram Nagaraju.
