Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday called the Partition of India "a historical mistake that should not have happened."

Owaisi was responding to a question from a reporter during a press conference on comments made by Samajwadi Party leader S.P. Maurya that Mohammad Ali Jinnah was not responsible for Partition, but it was the Hindu Mahasabha that sought it.

 "All the leaders of that time are responsible. Read what Abul Kalam Azad wrote in his book India Wins Freedom. He talks about how he went from

one big Congress leader to another, asking them not to agree to the proposal. All the Islamic scholars of that time too opposed the two-nation theory. They were also very heartbroken," Owaisi said.

He said: "Historically, this was one country. Unfortunately, it was divided. It should not have happened. This is what I can tell you. I can also tell you who is responsible for the division of the country if you arrange for a debate. It’s a long story. There can be no single-sentence answer to this question."
