Shia Waqf Board Chairman Wasim Rizvi blamed All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Waris Pathan for the violence that has been going on in Delhi for 3 days. He said that people have become angry due to the statement of Waris Pathan. Rizvi took a dig at the opposition to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh, saying the violence was the result of the famine of grandmothers sitting there.
Addressing the people directly, Wasim Rizvi said that there is an appeal to all with folded hands that people should not drink the cup of poison of Congress. Do not create an atmosphere against the rule by getting caught in the Congress trap. Government, country and citizenship amendment law is ours. Nobody says a martyr after fighting among themselves.
Shia Waqf Board Chairman Wasim Rizvi is constantly in discussions about his statements. He has been making strict statements on the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act. He said in a recent statement that if such a situation prevails, the dreaded faces of Islamic beard and mustache will wipe the Ganges-Jamuni Tehzeeb of India. He said that there should be thousands of dharna like Shaheen Bagh. There should be no compromise on the Citizenship Amendment Act. He also said that the strike of Shaheen Bagh is not a fight to demand the right, but the insistence on taking away the right of Hindus.
