Meghalaya High Court judgment unacceptable, says Asaduddin Owaisi
While commenting on the judgement of Meghalaya High Court that India should have been a Hindu nation, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said it was ‘unacceptable’.
Addressing a public meeting organised by the AIMIM late on Wednesday night, Owaisi launched a scathing attack on the judge of Meghalaya High Court saying that he, who took oath on Indian Constitution can’t give such a wrong judgment.
Notably, Owaisi was reacting to the judgement delivered by Justice SR Sen on Monday while disposing of a petition relating to refusal of Domicile Certificate to an army recruit.
“India will not become an Islamic country. India will remain a plural and secular country,” said Owaisi on Justice Sen’s reported observation that nobody should try to make India another Islamic country. He further asserted that the judiciary and the government should take note of this judgement as an attempt was being made to spread hatred.
“What sort of judgement is this? Will the judiciary and the government take note of this,” he said. The AIMIM chief also advised Justice Sen to interpret the Constitution and not to beg Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The judge has observed that he has faith in Modi that he will protect India from becoming another Islamic country. He also urged Modi to enact laws to allow non-Muslims living in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to come to India and take Indian citizenship.
