All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi speaking at Addison in Illinois of USA, said that India's journey as a country has been towards a majoritarian one since day one. 

He said, We have  a Constitution and our founding fathers had hoped that we will have a participatory form of democracy instead oa a majoritarian one. Whenever the matter of reservations for Muslims was talked about by Muslim intellectuals, Sardar Patel would tell them they do not want to bring Muslims into the mainstream. 

In the constituent assembly, it was conveyed that

we should leave all such things. UP's first Cm Govind Vallabh Pant had said we should either remain together or leave." He said that the BJP currently as 306 MPs without a single Muslim MP or Minister in the government. 

"Twenty MPs of us (Muslims) come from areas which have more than 30 per cent of population. This exposes the secularism of our secular parties. Muslims are being made invisible. Their names are anyway higher in jails. Around 24 per cent of under trials are Muslims and those convicted are 8 or 9 per cent, pointing to false cases," he said.
