All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Navneet Rana over her controversial '15 seconds' threat remark, saying he was not scared of her.

On Wednesday, Rana, the BJP candidate from Maharashtra's Amravati, addressed a public meeting in support of BJP's Hyderabad candidate, Madhavi Latha, and issued an open threat to the Owaisi brothers. She said, “It might take you 15 minutes, but it will only take us 15 seconds...it will take us all of 15 seconds if we come to the forefront."

Reacting to her remark, Asaduddin Owaisi said he would like to tell Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give her even one hour.

“I tell Modi ji - give her 15 seconds. What will you do?... Give her 15 seconds, give her 1 hour. We, too, want to see if you have any humanity left in you. Who is scared? We are ready...If someone is making an open call for it, then so be it," said Owaisi while speaking to the media.

“Tell us where we have to come, we will be there. Do it," said the AIMIM chief,  adding, “PM is yours, RSS is yours, everything is yours. Do it. Who is stopping you."

Owaisi also slammed Rana's remarks that the vote given to AIMIM and Congress directly goes to Pakistan.

“In 2014, Narendra Modi landed at the home of Nawaz Sharif all of a sudden...What was that? They feel all Muslims in India are Pakistanis. We have to defeat this RSS ideology. They hate India's pluralism and diversity," he added.

While former Maharashtra CM and Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan asked the Election Commission to probe Rana's statement, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Anand Dubey said that whether it is Navneet Rana or Owaisi brothers, they speak the same language.

“Someone is saying, give me police for fifteen minutes, then we will teach a lesson to Hindus, someone is saying, give me police for fifteen seconds, then we will teach a lesson to Muslims. They had to ultimately talk about Hindu-Muslim…BJP distributes certificates of Hindutva and gives knowledge of morality to others," ANI quoted Dubey.
