Asaduddin Owaisi on the Saroornagar murder in Hyderabad
All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday condemned the dishonor killing incident that took place in Saroornagar in Telangana and called it a “criminal act” in line with the constitution and to Islam.
Addressing the public in Hyderabad, Telangana, he said: “We condemn the incident that took place in Saroornagar. The woman voluntarily decided to marry. Her brother has no right to kill her husband. It is a criminal act according to the Constitution & the worst crime according to Islam.”
“This incident has taken on a different color since yesterday. Didn’t the police here arrest the accused immediately? They arrested him. We do not support the murderers,” he added.
While talking about the incidents of communal violence in Jahangirpuri and Khargone, he said, “I mean whatever religious procession is removed, there should be high resolution CCTV installed on the mosque and whenever a procession is moving, it should be telecast live on Facebook so the world knows who is throwing stones.”
Earlier Thursday, Saroornagar Police in Hyderabad arrested two relatives of Ashrin Sulthana alias Pallavi for their involvement in the murder of Billipuram Nagaraju.

According to the police, the two defendants developed a grudge against the deceased because he had married the defendant’s sister Syed Mobin Ahmed.
“The late Billipuram Nagaraju, who belongs to the SC-Mala community, and Ashrin Sulthana from the Muslim community had been in love for more than five years. They were classmates and both studied in the same school and college. She is the sister of the accused Syed Mobin Ahmed. Sensing that his sister was in love with the deceased, Mobin warned her. On 30.01.2022, she came out of her house located in IDPL Colony, Balanagar leaving her mobile phone in her same house. The following day, Nagaraju and Ashrin Sulthana were married to Arya Samaj in the old city of Hyderabad,” the police statement said.
