These protests r not against #CAA, it’s a plot by Pro-Pak elements to create unrest in d country.”
A young woman on Thursday raised “Pakistan Zindabad” slogan in the presence of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, leaving the organisers of an event to protest against the CAA, NRC and NRP in Bengaluru red-faced.
Asaduddin Owaisi denounced her action at the rally and asserted “we are for India”.
The woman, identified as Amulya, asked people to shout with her “Pakistan Zindabad” after the organisers of the event under the banner of “Save Constitution” invited her to address the gathering soon after Asaduddin Owaisi came on stage.
In the video, Asaduddin Owaisi is seen rushing back to the dais to stop the woman from chanting the slogan. As Asasussin Owaisi rushed to snatch the mike from her hands, he was joined by others who tried to remove her from the stage.
The woman, adamantly, raised the slogan again, repeatedly. Later, the police stepped in and removed her from the dais.
