Replying to a discussion on the construction of the Ram Temple in Lok Sabha, Owaisi said the BJP government gave the impression that one religion triumphed over another.

"I want to ask if the Modi government is the government of a particular community, religion or the government of the entire country? Does GoI have a religion? I believe that this country does not have a religion. Through 22nd January, does this government want to give a message that one religion triumphed over the other?" he added.

He said he respects Lord Ram but hates Nathuram Godse who killed Mahatma Gandhi.

"What message do you give to the 17 crore Muslims in the country?...Am I a spokesperson of Babar, Jinnah or Aurangzeb?...I respect Lord Ram but I hate Nathuram Godse because he killed the person whose last words were Hey Ram," he added.

He said the Modi government celebrated what happened on December 6.

Babri Masjid was demolished by right-wing activists on December 6, 1992.

After nearly three decades since the incident, the Supreme Court ruled in 2019 that the disputed land be handed over to the temple trust for the construction of the Ram Temple. It also asked the government to allocate a separate 5-acre plot to the Muslim side for the construction of a mosque.
