Controversial AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday visited the family of the man killed by a mob following rumours that he and family had consumed beef and alleged that he was targeted for his religion as the political blame-game over the shocking incident intensified.

Owaisi, who heads the Muslim right wing All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), met the wife of deceased Iqlakh this morning and hit out at the Samajwadi government, alleging instead of nabbing the attackers it was investigating a piece of meat and treating the victim as accused.

“This wasn’t an attack over meat. He has been killed in the name of religion. This is a pre-planned, cold-blooded killing. It cannot be an accident. This is the thought which is against secularism, it is against the brotherhood of India. It sees Muslims with an eye of suspicion,” the Hyderabad MP said.
