Asaduddin Owaisi on Hindu man's murder allegedly by Muslim wife's brother in Hyderabad

Hyderabad honour killing: B. Nagaraju was killed in full public view on May 4, allegedly over his interfaith marriage with Ashrin Sultana.

Following the brazen murder of a Hindu man allegedly for marrying a Muslim woman, politician Asaduddin Owaisi commented on the incident.

The chief of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, or AIMIM, condemned the murder, calling it violative of Indian law and Islamic law. Owaisi said, "I'm saying it openly - AIMIM condemns the incident in Saroornagar. We condemn it because in Islam, marriage is between a Muslim man and a Muslim woman. That is when 'nikah' takes place. Under Hindu Marriage Act, you are required to be a Hindu for your marriage to be legal."

The Lok Sabha member added, "In this case, the woman got married as per her choice. She is legal empowered to do so. She has legal permission, she got married. Her brother did not have the right to go and kill her husband. It's a crime as per law. In Islam, the worst crime is murder."

B. Nagaraju was killed in full public view in Hyderabad on May 4, allegedly over his interfaith marriage. One of the accused is the brother of Nagaraju's wife Ashrin Sultana.

The accused - Syed Mobin Ahmed and Mohammed Masood Ahmed - were sent to judicial custody for 14 days on May 5. Meanwhile, Telangana's governor Tamilisai Soundararajan sought a report from the state government on the incident.
