Hyderabad: Alleging that the Union government was punishing poor Muslims, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday questioned the recent decision of the Centre to discontinue of the Maulana Azad National Fellowship (MANF).

Pointing out that ‘government data’ had clearly indicated that poverty had prevented Muslims from giving their children an education, Owaisi challenged the decision that was announced in Parliament last week.

“Maulana Azad Fellowship for minorities has been

discontinued. This is @narendramodi’s sabka saath, vikas. Govt’s data shows that Muslims want to educate their children but extreme poverty prevents them. This is punishing Muslims for their poverty (sic),” he posted on Twitter.

On November 29, while addressing a public meeting in Gujarat, Owaisi had criticised the Union government’s decision to stop Pre-Matric scholarship for students from Class 1 to 8 from the SC, ST, OBC and minority communities.
