Questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi's agenda on minorities, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi fear-mongered over the condition of Muslim community in India. 

Reiterating his demand for reservation, he said that the community must be considered on the basis of social backwardness. 

He said, "PM remembers Shah Bano. Didn't he remember Tabrez Ansari, Akhlaq, Pehlu Khan? Didn't he remember that his Minister had garlanded the murderers of Alimuddin Ansari? If someone is making the 'gutter' comment, then why do you not give Muslims reservation?" 

Furthermore, Owaisi attacking the government said that there is a massive difference in their 'talks and ideology'

He said, "You don't have a single Muslim MP winning out of 300, who is keeping them behind? You are. There is a massive difference in their ideology and their talks." 

"Narsimha Rao was responsible for Babari demolition, being a Prime Minister he could not save it. Now we have Modi who wants to run his own agenda," he added. 

The AIMIM chief stoked controversy on Monday after he uttered disrespectfully for the President Ram Nath Kovind over his Parliament speech. 

While speaking about the President's address where he spoke about Nikah Halala, an abusive practice perpetrated on Muslim women who want to remarry their spouses from whom they were divorced, he said:

"I would like to ask who are those (undecipherable) 'jaahil' (uneducated) people who write the speech. There is no such thing as Nikah Halala in Islam, only Nikah. Tell them that after the Supreme Court judgment if the Nikah doesn't break, how can there be a Halala? " he asked

President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday had said eradication of social evils like Triple Talaq and Nikah-Halala is imperative for ensuring equal rights for women in the country.

In his address to both the houses of the Parliament in the Central Hall, Kovind urged all the members to cooperate in these efforts to make the lives of women “better and dignified”.

“To secure equal rights for every sister and daughter in the country, eradication of social evils like Triple Talaqand Nikah Halala is imperative,” Kovind said in his customary address after the formation of the 17th Lok Sabha.

Meanwhile, Owaisi has staunchly opposed the criminalisation of the Triple Talaq practise in India.
