Mumbai: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi asked Muslims not to get trapped in political secularism. The MP from Hyderabad said this while addressing a rally in Mumbai.
‘I want to ask Muslims of India what we got from secularism? Did we get reservations from Secularism? Did the people who demolished the mosque get punishment? No, no one got anything. I believe in constitutional secularism and not in political secularism. I appeal to all not to get trapped in political secularism’, said Asaduddin Owaisi.
