All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, who confronted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee on her “terrorists were hiding in Hyderabad” remark has now indirectly extended supported to her stand against the National Register of Citizens (NRC) saying it will only cause hardship to minorities and the weak.

While the West Bengal CM said she would not allow the conduct of an NRC in her state while she was in power, Owaisi tweeted to say besides troubling the people it would serve no purpose.

He tweeted saying, “Modi wants all Indians to yet again stand in line, detaining undocumented Indians and leaving minorities and the weak at the mercy of babus. Nowhere in the world are people put through such hardship”. His reaction comes after Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced in Parliament on Wednesday that his government was committed to nationwide conduct of the NRC.
