HYDERABAD: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday described US President Donald Trump as ‘illiterate’ for calling PM Narendra Modi the ‘Father of India’ and said that he insulted the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi.
Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, the Hyderabad MP said, “Trump called Modi the Father of the Nation. He is ‘jahil’, he is ignorant and he does not know anything about Mahatma Gandhi.”
“He has no knowledge of India’s past. One should understand Narendra Modi cannot be the father of
the nation because you cannot compare Gandhi and Modi. Gandhi made numerous sacrifices for this nation, he earned it,” the AIMIM chief added.
