HYDERABAD – A day after a Karnataka minister said the BJP would “definitely not give tickets (to contest elections) to Muslims”, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi hit back, labelling the remark “disgusting and shameful, but not surprising”. He said such an ideology was incompatible with the Constitution. “Disgusting and shameful, but not surprising. Hindutva believes only 1 community has the right to political power and all others are subservient. This ideology cannot co-exist with our Constitution, which talks about liberty, fraternity, equality and justice,” Mr Owaisi tweeted Monday afternoon. Earlier KS Eshwarappa, Karnataka’s Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister, said the BJP would give tickets to Hindus but not Muslims.
