‘He is legally allowed to marry of his choice’
Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi said, ‘You have to be a Hindu under the Hindu Marriage Act, only then your marriage is legal. Among Muslims, marriage can take place only between two Muslim men and women. This is Sharia law. Under the Hindu Marriage Act, marriage takes place between two Hindus. There is also a provision of Special Marriage Act in it. Here (in Hyderabad) this girl married of her choice, legally she is allowed. His brother has no right to go and kill that girl’s husband. It is a crime by law. The worst crime in Islam is murder.
‘Remember this is a crime, be afraid of Allah’
Owaisi further said, ‘Remember, you who kill innocent people will stand in the court of Allah in the same condition that or Allah this person killed me, now you calculate it. Why did you kill that child? I openly criticize. I am speaking openly. You didn’t like ok you had to turn away ok don’t like you go. But you have committed a crime. Wrong act and Majlis (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen) criticizes it. Marriage takes place between two Muslims. That’s what they call marriage. But you do not have the right to go and kill the husband of that girl. Remember this is a crime, fear Allah.’
