A guy sees a hot looking female. He goes up to her and asks her “Will you sleep with me for a million dollars?” She says “Sure!”. Ok, so the guy says, “How about for $100?”. The female gets really angry and shouts “What do you think I am? A Prostitute?”. The guy calmly replies “I have already established that Ma’am, now I am just haggling for the right price!”
Interesting joke. Now look at these two interview replies from the same person (Asaduddin Owaisi, a British-trained barrister – the public face of the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen – elected from Hyderabad):
Why has the MIM decided to support the UPA government?
For us the deal is not the immediate concern. Our top priority is to stop the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) and L K Advani from coming to power as they pose an immediate threat to the secular polity of the country and to the life, identity and development of Muslims.
While voting tomorrow my immediate concern will be how to stop L K Advani from becoming the prime minister of this great nation as he is an accused in the Babri Masjid demolition criminal case. On the nuclear deal we have already conveyed our reservations and concerns to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi.
Oh my, his heart really beats for the Indian Muslims doesn’t it? Look at how opposed he is to those enemies of Muslims, which is why he voted for the deal. Right? His so very principled stand makes so much sense doesn’t it? Hmm… now another question in the same interview:
Accusations are flying thick and fast that individual MPs are being lured by offering crores of rupees to support the UPA. What you have been offered?
I am not so cheap to be sold for Rs 25 crore. The MIM has been given Rs 5,000 crore. I am not kidding. The prime minister has promised to look into our demand for the implementation of the Fatimi committee report on the Sachar committee findings. Under this four centres of the Aligarh Muslim University and Maulana Azad National Urdu university will be set up and it will be a great boon to uplift Muslims educationally. The committee has also made many other recommendations.
Does his reply sound like deja vu? Now, for the life of me, where the heck could I have read something like this before? 😉
