Owaisi criticises Taslima Nasreen after her protest against the Hijab Issue

I won’t respond to the person who is a symbol of hate !

Hyderabad (Telangana) – The Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen had said in an interview that ‘Hijab, burqa or Niqab is a symbol of oppressions’. On this statement, the AIMIM President and MP Asaduddin Owaisi said, ‘I won’t reply to the person who is a symbol of hate. I won’t reply to a person who has been given refuge by India and who is lying on the pieces of India. I won’t speak to such a person who could not protect herself in her own country.’ Due to the fatwa of religious fanatics in Bangladesh to kill her, she needed to take refuge in India. She has been living in India for several years.

Asaduddin Owaisi further said,

Liberals are only happy in their freedom of choice. The liberals want every Muslim to behave like them. The right-wing fundamentalists want us to leave our religious identity which the Constitution guarantees me.

The Constitution of India has given me the freedom of choice, freedom of conscience and it has given me the freedom to carry on with my religious identity. India is a multi-cultural, multi-religious country but no one can tell me how to behave and no one can tell me to leave my religion, to leave my culture.
