Women's bill to sound death knell for Muslims: Owaisi

  • tags: no_tag

    • Asaduddin Owaisi of the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen claimed that the Bill in its present form will deprive the Muslim community of its place in the legislature and the House will eventually turn into a "Hindu Lok Sabha".

      Participating in the discussion on the Motion of Thanks to the President's Address, Owaisi said if the Bill was passed, Muslims will have "no space" and it will sound a "death knell" for the community.

      "We oppose women's reservation as it will sound a death knell for the Muslims...the reservation should start with the Muslim community as they are socially backward.
