The lawyer who fought the Mathura-Kashi case wrote a letter to the President, demanding Owaisi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha

A day after AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi raised the slogan ‘Jai Palestine’ in Lok Sabha after taking oath as MP, he is facing trouble as demands for his disqualification from Lok Sabha grow. Advocate Hari Shankar Jain has filed a complaint before President Murmu seeking disqualification of Asaduddin Owaisi citing Articles 102 and 103 of the Constitution of India.

Advocate Hari Shankar Jain said that this proves that he has links with Palestine and he is influenced and pressured by Palestine… As a citizen I have to put an end to this kind of thing.” In a letter to the President, Hari Shankar said, “The slogan raised by Asaduddin Owaisi is a threat to the security, sovereignty and integrity of the country. This is an extremely serious and important issue which requires immediate attention and appropriate action using the powers conferred by Article 102 read with Article 103 of the Constitution of India.”

“If a person is devoted to any other country instead of India, he has no right to hold any constitutional post,” Hari Shankar Jain said on Wednesday. The Hyderabad MP took oath in Urdu on Tuesday. After taking oath, Owaisi continued to praise the architect of the Constitution, BR Ambedkar, his state Telangana and raised the slogan ‘Jai Palestine’, leading to uproar in the ruling party. Following objections from BJP MPs, Owaisi defended his act, telling the media outside the House that there was nothing wrong in saying “Jai Bhim, Jai Mim, Jai Telangana, Jai Palestine”.
