As a substitute, they bulldoze our homes,” PTI quoted Owaisi as saying. “For those who love one group, you can not hate one other…. If in case you have religion, then others even have religion,” the AIMIM MP added.

Earlier on Tuesday, sharing a number of information stories on his Twitter deal with, Owaisi had mentioned, “If a Muslim affords prayers in an open place even for a couple of minutes, it results in a row.

An official spokesperson advised PTI that UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath performed an aerial survey of the continued Kanwar Yatra in western a part of the state on Monday and showered petals on Kanwariyas from the chopper. Adityanath’s helicopter reached the Siddhpeeth Parshurameshwar Puramahadev temple in Baghpat on Monday afternoon and flowers have been showered on the Kanwariyas from there amidst chants of “Har Har Mahadev”.

The Kanwar Yatra is being held within the state after two years because it was suspended earlier because of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Throughout the Hindu calendar month of ‘Saavan’, yearly the Shiva devotees, often known as Kanwariyas, fetch the holy waters of Ganga to supply on the Shiva temples. These pilgrims go to Haridwar, Gaumukh, and Gangotri in Uttarakhand and Sultanganj in Bihar to carry the waters of Ganga. This water is then supplied to Lord Shiva in temples by Kanwariyas of their areas.
