Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma slammed the AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi for visiting the grave of Mughal tyrant Aurangzeb in Maharashtra's Aurangabad.

In an exclusive interview with Times Now, on Sunday, when the Assam CM was asked about Owaisi's recent grave visit, Sarma asked, ''Why would anyone visit the grave of Aurangzeb? Tomorrow, he will say that he wants to visit the tomb of Al-Qaeda terrorists.''

"Why do you need to visit the grave of Aurangzeb, who demolished this country? Unless he is your father!'' he added.

He also said that he won't object to the visit of Owaisi provided that Aurangzeb is his father.

''If Aurangzeb is your father, then, I won't object. But else, why will you go?" Sarma added.

Speaking more on the same, the Assam CM suggested that take inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj or Lachit Borphukan.

"What inspiration will you take from the Mughal tyrant? If required, take inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj or Lachit Borphukan," he emphasized.

Criticizing Owaisi further over his visit's to Aurangzeb grave, Sarma asserted that by taking inspiration from Aurangzeb, does Owaisi want to take this country back to the dark ages.

On May 12 this year, Owaisi accompanied by Aurangabad MP Imtiyaz Jaleel and former MLA Waris Pathan had visited the tomb of Aurangzeb and he paid his respects to the Mughal tyrant and was

Following this, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had condemned Owaisi's visit to Aurangzeb's grave and said that one day even a dog won't pee on his identity.

Meanwhile, reacting over the ongoing row on the Gyanvapi Masjid in Varanasi, Assam Chief Himanta Biswa Sarma said God is God and it's above Law.

''How one can bind God with a law? A God is God and its above law. In any scenario, a court has ever denied the presence of God?'' he said in the interview.

While commenting on the AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi's statement, where he (Owaisi) alleged that the partition has begun in the country, the Assam CM said, '' We have already faced one partition in-country earlier, so to ensure that the same thing doesn't get repeated, then it is important to solve each and every issue now.''

When a question was asked regarding the 1991 Places of Worship Act, said that he doesn't know who brought this law into existence but it needs to be revisited.

''Law is dynamic in nature. Except for the basic structure of the Constitution, everything will change with time provided Parliament gives its majority,'' Sarma added.

The Gyanvapi case hit the headlines after the Hindu side claimed that a Shivling has been found inside the Mosque. According to Hindus side, the Mosque was built on a destroyed temple and thus belongs to the community.

On the contrary, the Muslim side claims that the Shivling is in fact a fountain that was often created by Mughal rulers.
