Bashing AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, BJP called him the 'leader' of the nationwide protests against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act.
Assadudin Owaisi also demanded the police chief to specify as to how many of those 127, who were notices,are Muslims and Dalits.
'They write secular in common minimum programme, this bill is against secularism and Article 14,' Owaisi said.
Amit Shah defended the Citizenship Amendment Bill, saying it was not against minorities but against infiltrators.
Assadudin Owaisi's remarks were expunged after the BJP members raised an objection.
AIMIM chief Owaisi said the Babri Masjid-Ramjanmabhoomi land dispute was by no means 'complete justice' that the powers under Article 142 are required to be used for
Mamata Banerjee had asked people to refrain from listening to 'minority extremists' who have their base in Hyderabad.
'Our fight was for a legal right, for a Babri Masjid,' says the AIMIM chief.
Owaisi said that he concurred with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board that they were not satisfied with the verdict.
AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said Hindu Rashtra is a flight of fantasy borne out of insecurities.
'The present BJP government has Nathuram Godse in its mind and Mahatma Gandhi in its words,' Owaisi said,
Owaisi lashed out at PM Modi saying he talked about 'Om and cow' keeping an eye on the assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana where the BJP has already kicked off its campaign.
CPI (M) general secretary D Raja asked why was the Prime Minister raising issues of 'Om' and 'cow' when he should be talking about the state of the economy
AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi said by scrapping special status to Jammu and Kashmir with its sheer majority in Parliament, the government threw the Constitution of India to wind.
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.
As Owaisi walked down the floor to take an oath, the room echoed with the chants of 'Jai Shri Ram', apparently to provoke him.
In the changed circumstances, AIMIM stands a chance to get the main opposition status. However, the party is an ally of the TRS. Owaisi had supported the TRS in the Assembly polls.
Congress has lost the status of the principal Opposition party in Telangana assembly. With seven members, the AIMIM, which is also is an ally of the ruling TRS, has emerged as the second largest party in the House.
