Urging the government to introduce a law to this effect, Owaisi suggested a punishment with three-year jail term to any person who says this. The AIMIM President spoke to the media after the Lok Sabha session on Tuesday.
Owaisi was addressing the rally around 10:00 pm in Nagpada when a shoe was hurled at him, sources said. While the man who had thrown the shoe was taken into custody, Owaisi, who was unfazed, did not stop his speech.
Owaisi said the “responsibility” now lies with the Prime Minister himself “that because of his wrong policies, the economy is going down”.
“Masjids can be managed by Shia, Sunni, Barelvi, Sufi, Deobandi, Salafi, Bohri but they are not owners ALLAH is the owner even AIMPLB (All India Muslim Personal Law Board) cannot give,” Owaisi posted on social networking site Twitter on Sunday.

The complaint was filed before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Munish Markan and it would come up for hearing on March 22.
‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Jai Hind’ slogans emerged during India’s freedom struggle. Both are reverential. Yet, both are markedly different.
“If someone says he/ she does not want to chant ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ at all, you are not allowing others also to chant the slogan… If anybody says so, he is anti-national,” said Hosabale.
How can that become the test of my loyalty to my country? I am perfectly happy to say Jai Hind. There are religious and historical reasons too. I do not object to others saying it, but I will not,” Owaisi said.
