AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi has kicked up a row by questioning the Bharat Ratna and Padma Vibhushan awards being given to former Prime Minister A B Vajpayee and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) patriarch L K Advani.

How can the country’s second highest civilian honour, Padma Vibhushan, be given to Advani who was facing criminal cases (in connection with the Babri masjid demolition), Owaisi said here at a book release function last night.

“The same L K Advani who spread destruction in the country with his ‘Rathyatra’…This could probably be the first instance of Padma Vibhushan being given to a person who is facing criminal cases,” the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen leader said.

As to A B Vajpayee, Asadudin Owaisi alleged that the BJP stalwart had made some controversial comments on the Ayodhya issue, the videos of which were available on the YouTube.

“Have we forgotten December 5 (1992)? The same Atal Bihari Vajpayee who had said ‘we are going to level the ground’ (has been now given the Bharat Ratna),”  he claimed.

              Just apply burnol Mr. Owaisi..And you will be needing it for the rest of your life..We the Nationalists and Patriots will ensure Modi's victory in 2019 as well..And even for the next 20 years. So just crib and cry..As for the disputed structure constructed by the invader Baber, it was meant to be razed.

                  The awards were politically motivated, everybody knows that. Owaisi is not the only one who says this. This is not a headline really.

                    It appears that Mr Owaisi is yearning for "good old days" when the princely state of Hyderabad was ruled by the Nizam and Muslims had the upper hand in all political and economic matters. No doubt, he will form the razakars party as soon as his hold reaches a critical level.
