AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi has shared a video which shows miscreants vandalising a religious property and planting saffron flag. He pleaded the government to do something to deradicalize the miscreants.
Look at the extent of majoritarian radicalisation in this country. They feel pride & comfort only when they are vandalising masjids. Ironically, @PMOIndia recently advised protestors to not destroy property. Govt must do something soon to deradicalise such misguided men https://t.co/wlsAHXj9Er— Asaduddin Owaisi (@asadowaisi) December 30, 2020
