All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday reacted on Twitter to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent comments on minority rights in India.
Owaisi asked Khan to borrow some leaves of wisdom from India, specifically on “inclusive politics and minority rights”.
According to the Pakistani Constitution, only a Muslim is qualified to be President. India has seen multiple Presidents from oppressed communities. It’s high time Khan sahab learns something from us about inclusive politics & minority rights. https://t.co/qarmZkqdhH

Owaisi tweeted, “according to the Pakistani Constitution, only a Muslim is qualified to be President. India has seen multiple Presidents from oppressed communities. It’s high time Khan Sahab learns something from us about inclusive politics and minority rights.”
Khan on Saturday had said that giving equal rights to the religious minorities is cornerstone of the vision of Pakistan’s founding father and that the country will show the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi how to treat these groups, the Express Tribune reported.
Khan has made these comments, after veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah said that the death of a cow is being given more importance than the death of a cop. He was referring to the violence in Bulandshahr earlier this month.
Reacting over his comments, a Right-Wing group from Uttar Pradesh, The Uttar Pradesh Navnirman Sena has said that they will send an air ticket to Shah for Pakistan.
