Asaduddin Owaisi

A person hurled a show at All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi during the political leader’s rally in Mumbai on Tuesday night. The person has been identified and arrested. As per the reports, the incident took place at around 9:45 pm when Owaisi was voicing his opinions on Triple Talaq.

Speaking to PTI after the incident, Owaisi, about the shoe hurler said, “I am willing to lay down my life for my democratic rights. These are all frustrated people, who cannot see that the government decision on triple talaq has not been accepted by the masses in general and Muslims in particular. These people are the ones who follow the ideology of the killers of Mahatma Gandhi, Govind Pansare and Narendra Dabholkar.”
