AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi was all praise for a 16-year-old student who asked him about the apparent inefficiency of ‘secular’ parties during an event in New Delhi.
Owaisi said that even if the bill is passed by parliament, he will 'knock on all doors' in the country and keep his point of view in front of the people.
Rao said that all Indian Muslims or any Indian citizen will not be affected by this bill.
The is an insult to India's freedom-fighters, he said, accusing the BJP-led government of working to marginalise Muslims in the country.
