A man on Tuesday night allegedly hurled a shoe at AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi while he was addressing a rally in Nagpada, south Mumbai. Hyderabad MP Owaisi was not hurt in the incident, and the miscreant was identified and a case was registered against him by the police.

The AIMIM chief was speaking against the triple talaq bill, saying that the bill is unjust to the Muslim women. He added that if it becomes a law, it would exploit the women, after which the incident took place.

He said, “I am willing to lay down my life for my democratic rights. These are all frustrated people who cannot see the government decision on triple talaq has not been accepted by masses in general and Muslims in particular.”

After the shoe was hurled at him, Owaisi claimed that such incidents were happening at the behest of people, who follow “hate ideologies” and that they are getting emboldened with each passing day. “These are the same people who killed Gandhi, Dabholkar and Pansare.”

Unfazed by the violence, Owaisi said that his voice cannot be silenced, and continued with his speech.

"When you are on the path of truth people will lay thorns in your path. These things don’t affect me. The programme happened successfully and I spoke. Whoever did this are frustrated individuals and I would say that I move without security in the country you can do all anything that you want but not silence my voice," he said.
