AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi appealed to people to hoist the national flag at their homes to protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and NRC. "This will send a message to BJP that they have made a wrong law," Owaisi added while addressing a rally in Hyderabad. The AIMIM chief also said that it was not a fight of Muslims alone.
The Hyderabad MP made the appeal while addressing a huge protest meeting organized by the United Muslim Action Committee on Saturday, 21 December, demanding rollback of CAA.
"Hoist a national flag on your houses from tomorrow. All those who do this will get seen as the opponents of the black legislation," Owaisi told the meeting at Darussalam, the headquarters of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).
Thousands of people, including many carrying national flag, attended the meeting, which continued till the early hours of Sunday. The MP read out the preamble of the Constitution of India first in Urdu and later in English and made the participants take the oath.
Earlier, the meeting began with the recital of the national anthem.
