Launching a scathing attack on Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, AIMIM Chief asaduddin Owaisi took to X (Formerly known as Twitter).

He said, "In a recently deleted post, Assam CM elaborated on his vision of society. “…farming, cow rearing, and commerce are natural duties of the Vaishya and serving the Brahmins, Kshatriyas and Vaishyas is the natural duty of the Shudras.”

He also added, "Holding a constitutional position, your oath is to treat every citizen equally. It’s reflected in the unfortunate cruelty that Assam’s Muslims have faced in the past few years. Hindutva is antithetical to Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and Justice."

Himanta vs Owaisi in July

This is not the first time that war of words has broken out between Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi. In July 2023, Owaisi had said, "there is a group in the country who will blame Miya Muslims for everything that goes wrong, if the buffalo doesn't give milk, or the hen does not lay eggs" .

The remark was made as a retaliation to Assam CM who had blamed Miya Muslims for the soaring price of vegetables in Guwahati. "Miya Muslims have their roots in Bangladesh. Miya Muslims have been increasing the rates in Guwahati, while the vegetable prices are lower in rural areas", Himanta Biswa said.
