Hyderabad: Muslim United Action Committee, Telangana, has called for a peaceful protest rally against the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 at 2 pm, from Mir Alam Eidgah till Shastripuram, here on January 10. Fourteen days later On January 25, the AIMIM party workers headed by Hyderabad Parliamentarian Asaduddin Owaisi to hold a protest in front of Charminar, accompanied historians and poets. As as mark of protest the National flag will be hoisted at Charminar, said the AIMIM Chief.
The committee said that on January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, a human chain protest will be organised from Mohammadi Line flour mill to Babughat. Giving details about the protest plans, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi urged citizens to come out in large numbers and hold peaceful protests.
He said, "I earnestly request the people of Telangana to participate in all our protests and make it a huge success. This is to save the soul of our country. We cannot destroy its Constitution and legacy. The Hyderabad Lok Sabha member urged Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) to take a cue from his Kerala counterpart and summarily reject the National Population Register.
"I requested KCR to pass a resolution against NPR like it was done by the Kerala Legislative Assembly," he said.
On the FIR filed against JNU students, Owaisi said, "I condemn the FIR. It is an injustice. Over 48 hours no arrest have been made. "
The Parliamentarian also demanded JNU Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar to resign in the light of Police attack on Jamia students in the campus. "The students were attacked inside their hostel rooms. It is the responsibility of VC to ensure the safety of students within the campus. He has utterly failed here. The Vice Chancellor has to resign if he has some scruples
left," Mr Owaisi said.
