It turns out to be a real shameful news that an Indian has extended his support to the ISIS agency. In a shocking statement made to the media, AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi said that his party would provide legal aid to the youngsters arrested by the NIA on charges of involvement with the ISIS, the terror group.

The NIA has arrested five persons from Hyderabad for their alleged links with the ISIS. Owaisi had said his party would provide legal help to them while holding AIMIM does not support terrorism.
BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said before jumping onto anything, Owaisi should have weighed the pros and cons because the evidence suggests that the arrested youths were allegedly planning to carry out terror-related activities during Ramzan.
Owaisi says that he condemns terrorism, but the parents of the accused came to meet him, pleading mercy. He is trying his best to defend his statements and put down the blazing controversy by saying that he is just trying to defend the innocent.
To the above statement, Kohli retorts “Tomorrow if the court finds that the evidence is sufficient, they are convicted for an act of terror, they are sentenced, then Mr Owaisi will definitely answer a question. Was he openly helping terrorist and that he was very eager to help terrorists?”
Owaisi claimed that the MIM was the first to denounce the IS, accused the Centre of double standards in dealing with different hues of terror. He accused the Centre of going soft on the accused in the Mecca Masjid and Ajmer blast cases.
Government on the other hand says that they cannot go soft on a suspect. If a suspect has been arrested it means his activities raised a suscipision and therefore he was arrested.
Where Modi sir is busy touring countries, talking about ways to curb terrorism, I hope he finds out a way to tackle this recent dilemma.
