This comes out in exactly the way Owaisi said it in his speech and this is what makes this speech so important. At one point in his diatribe against India and Indians he said that those who said Muslims should go to another country did not realise that if they went they would take with them the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and the Qutab Minar. “And, what will be left here then? A broken Ram temple in Ayodhya and some naked statues in Ajanta and Ellora.” Analyse this comment and you see what ordinary Muslims across the Indian sub-continent have long believed — that there was nothing worth preserving of India’s ancient civilisation. Until Islam arrived, they believe, India was a cultural and civilisational desert and if you try arguing that this is illiterate rubbish, as I often have done, then the conversation ends or the subject gets changed.
