Two days after hitting out at All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi over ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ slogan row in Parliament, renowned poet, lyricist and scriptwriter Javed Akhtar once again hit out at Owaisi. 

Speaking at the India Today Conclave 2016, Javed Akhtar said: “I am ready to fight election against Asaduddin Owaisi. I am ready to contest against Owaisi from any constituency in India which has the equal number of Hindu and Muslim voters.”

Shabana Azmi also expressed her views on Owaisi’s remarks. She said, “Will Asaduddin Owaisi be okay saying ‘Bharat Ammi Ki Jai if he has a problem in saying ‘Mata’.
