‘States can’t interfere…’: Owaisi slams BJP over religious conversion laws

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday hit out at BJP governments for bringing ordinances against religious conversion through fraudulent means, including those for the sake of marriage, claiming these violated the fundamental rights under the Constitution.

Owaisi said an adult can marry anyone they want and alleged the intention of the BJP in bringing such laws against religious conversions was to make a mockery of the Constitution.

He was referring to the recent promulgation of an ordinance by the Uttar Pradesh government against forcible or 'dishonest' religious conversions and the Madhya Pradesh cabinet giving its nod for a similar measure on Tuesday.

‘Mamata Banerjee & PM Modi practicing same politics of communalism’: Owaisi

After West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee said she hailed from the 'Shandilya' lineage, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said political parties have always vying to prove who among them is the bigger Hindu and this is not good for a secular and democratic India. Owaisi said: "Throughout her election campaigning, Mamata Banerjee has been reciting Chandi Path and Durga Paths. Now she said that her Gotra is Shandliya and she is a Hindu Brahmin. If she is saying that she belongs to the upper caste in a state where 27 per cent are Muslims and 22 per cent are Dalits. Where should Muslims and Dalits of West Bengal go, who are not part of the 'varna' system? She's practicing PM Modi & BJP's politics of communalism. They are made for each other."
