In March 2016, Asaduddin Owaisi as slammed by Shiv Sena that asked him to “go to Pakistan” for refusing to chant ‘Bharat mata ki jai’.

Shiv Sena minister Ramdas Kadam had said, “Asaduddin Owaisi doesn’t deserve to live in India because he does not respect this country that has given him so much. He should go to Pakistan or we will drive him out of this country.”

Recently the DM of Bareilly questioned the increasing trend of entering Muslims localities by force and raising anti-Pakistan slogans.

In one of his posts, the District Magistrate wrote: “Ajab rivaz ban gayaa hai. Muslim mohallon mein jabrdasti julus le jao aur Pakistan murdabaad ke nare lagao. Kyon bhaii, ve Pakistani hain kya? Yehi yahaan Bareilly me Khailam mein huaa tha. Fir patharaav hua, mukadme likhe gaye…”

A strange trend has started. Take out processions through Muslim localities to trigger violence” and then  raise anti-Pakistan slogans. Why? Are they Pakistani? The same thing had happened in Khailam village of Bareilly. Then stones were pelted, FIRs lodged).

He had to take down his post after facing criticism by people.

Triple talaq bill was a ploy to send Muslim men to jail – Owaisi claimed recently.
