Asaduddin Owaisi

AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday said the Supreme court verdict on the Babri Masjid-Ramjanmabhoomi land dispute was a "victory of belief over facts."

Addressing his maiden rally here, the Hyderabad MP said the All-India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) "will unite Muslims, Christians, tribals and other secular-minded people", while also expanding its political base in this part of the country.

Hyderabad: AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday asked the government to remove the restrictions on communication links in Kashmir. “No phone works there. Internet is a far-off thing,” Owaisi said while addressing an Eid Milap at his party’s office on Tuesday night. “I said in Parliament that if Kashmir people are so happy… let them come …

The verbal duel between the two leaders started during a discussion on the National Investigation Agency (Amendment) Bill, when opposition members including Owaisi started interrupting BJP's Satyapal Singh.

"There is no law preventing people from saying downright unconstitutional things, but why do Ramdev's ideas receive undue attention?," Owaisi tweeted.

This Bill not only aims to remove discrimination and stigma attached to patients battling with leprosy, but also tries to integrate people suffering from leprosy into the mainstream.

T. Raja Singh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Goshamahal Assembly constituency in Hyderabad, had dared Asaduddin Owaisi and his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi to keep aside their security and wrestle with him for 15 minutes.

While addressing the rally in Telangana, UPCM Yogi said that Owaisi will have to flee once BJP comes into the power in the state to which AIMIM President reacted, "India is my father's country. Nobody can force me flee."
