Former Union Minister Subramanian Swamy in a conversation with media said that Asaduddin Owaisi is misleading people.

He said that Owaisi has read the law and has also got a degree. When he say that surveying the Gyanvapi Masjid violates the Places of Worship Act, he mislead people. The Act has nothing to do with it. When a mosque or temple will be demolished, then only this act can be mentioned. This is not illegal. Court has given direction in this matter.

Subramanian Swamy said that the Gyanvapi survey can be opposed only by going to the Supreme Court and he has gone too. I want to say that Owaisi's talk is baseless. The survey was done on the directions of the court. Mosque is only a place to offer Namaz, there is no such secret. Anyone can come and go there.

On PM Modi's silence in Gyanvapi Masjid case, Subramanian Swamy asked that what will the Prime Minister say on the matter of the court? I am not saying that the PM cannot speak, but this matter is not related to his field of work. In this the court ordered.

Then the survey was done and if there was no loss, what would the Prime Minister say in this? If the PM speaks, there will be a demand that the Places of Worship Act should be repealed by passing a bill in Parliament. Right now he has done the right thing by not saying anything.
