New Delhi: A criminal complaint has been filed against All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen party (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi in Delhi’s Karkardooma Court for alleged offences of sedition and causing enmity between different classes.

The complainant in his complaint alleged that on March 13, Owaisi had voluntarily said, “Even if somebody puts a knife at me, I will not say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai” and his expression showed ‘disaffection and includes disloyalty and all feeling of enmity.’

The petitioner had sought a direction to the SHO Karawal Nagar Police Station to lodge an FIR against Owaisi for the alleged offences under Sections 124A (sedition) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race etc) of the Indian Penal Code.

The court will be hearing the matter on March 22. (ANI)
