Filed PIL Against Citizenship Act, AIMIM Will Fight The Act at Every Possible Forum: Asaduddin Owaisi

Hyderabad: AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday said he has filed a Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme Court, challenging the Citizenship Amendment Act.

I have filed a PIL before the SC challenging the CAA @aimim_national will fight this battle to preserve a plural, secular constitutional democracy in Bharat.

This fight will be before every possible forum & using every constitutional tool available to us," he tweeted.

Owaisi had on Monday 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.
