AIMIM Chief Calls Partition Historical Mistake During Press Conference

Asaduddin Owaisi, the head of AIMIM, declared on Monday that the partition of India should never have occurred and that it was a “historical mistake.”

The Hyderabad Lok Sabha MP stated during a news conference that historically, our country was one and that it should not have been partitioned.

“Historically, this was a one nation that was regrettably split. It wasn’t supposed to happen. What I can say is this. I can’t give a one-line explanation for a historical error that was made at that time, but if you want, set up a debate, and I’ll tell you who caused this country’s divide, he told reporters.

The AIMIM representative was responding to a question regarding Samajwadi Party leader Swami Prasad Maurya’s alleged statement that Mohammad Ali Jinnah was not responsible for the creation of India or Pakistan but rather that it was a demand of the Hindu Mahasabha.

In addition, he advised reading “India Wins Freedom,” a book by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, a freedom fighter who served as India’s first minister of education. It describes how Azad went to Congress officials and begged them to reject the idea of division.

“The partition of this country should not have happened. That was wrong. All the leaders who were there at that time, they were all responsible (for partition). If you read a book by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad’s book ‘India wins Freedom’, Maulana Azad requested all the Congress leaders then that the country should not be divided,” Owaisi said.

He added that the two-nation notion was also rejected at the time by Islamic academics.
