Owaisi had on Monday last attacked the Union government in the Lok Sabha over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, saying it was aimed at making Muslims “stateless” and would lead to another partition. Invoking Mahatma Gandhi, Owaisi had said he was called Mahatma after he tore the discriminatory citizenship card in South Africa. The Hyderabad MP had then torn the copy of the bill to highlight his protest, inviting sharp reactions from the treasury benches, which described his act an “insult” to Parliament.

The Act is an insult to India’s freedom-fighters, Owaisi had said, accusing the BJP-led government of working to marginalise Muslims in the country.
