Pak PM to learn something from India about inclusive politics, minority rights: MIM chief

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen Chief and Hyderabad MP, Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has to learn something from India about inclusive politics and minority rights. Mr Khan while addressing in Lahore on Saturday, said he will “show” the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government “how to treat minorities”, amid a controversy over Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah’s remarks on mob violence in India.

Reacting over Imran Khan’s remarks, Owaisi in Twitter, said “According to the Pakistani constitution, only a Muslim is qualified to be President. India has seen multiple Presidents’ from oppressed communities. It is high time Khan sahab learns something from us about inclusive politics and minority rights”.

On December 20, Naseeruddin Shah in an interview expressed concern over the recent Bulandshahr riots which claimed two lives including police officer Subodh Kumar Singh, who was investigating the Akhlaq lynching case. Citing the incident, the actor had questioned on a cow’s death given significance over that of a police officer. “I fear for my children,” Shah had said.
