Union Home Minister Amit Shah today came down heavily on AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi during the discussion on NIA Amendment Bill in the Parliament. The assembly was discussing the bill to strengthen the National Investigation Agency. The opposition, however, was spooked by the amendments and tried to give it a communal spin.

When BJP MP Dr Satya Pal Singh was speaking how certain terror cases were politicised when it did not suit the political party. Citing an example of the Mecca Masjid blast case from Hyderabad, Dr Singh said that the chief minister had intervened when some of the suspects were found to be of the minority community. Without naming the chief minister he was referring, to Dr Singh said that he had asked the police commissioner to not do anything ‘otherwise you will lose your job’
At this point, AIMIM MP from Hyderabad, Asaduddin Owaisi interrupted the BJP MP. He insisted that the BJP MP should provide proof for the above conversation.
Union Minister Amit Shah took a dig at the opposition and said that suddenly Owaisi and other people’s secularism is overflowing. “When A Raja was speaking why didn’t you interrupt him? You should not have different yardsticks. You should also learn to listen, you will have to listen,” Shah said.
