Muslim Netas Have Spat Over ‘political Exclusion’ | Mumbai News – Times of India



MUMBAI: The book launch of an ex-IPS officer at Islam Gymkhana on Thursday was marred by bedlam briefly after Congress leader Arif Naseem Khan began replying to questions raised by MP Imtiaz Jaleel.
For the launch of ‘Absent In Politics And Power: Political Exclusion of Indian Muslims’ by Abdur Rahman, political leaders were invited. MIM MP Jaleel said Muslims had a misconception only they had the responsibility to save secularism. “Your representation has gone down also because the so-called secular parties don’t give you adequate nomination,” he said.
Naseem Khan asked Jaleel why MIM had fielded candidates in Bihar and stopped Tejashwi Yadav from becoming CM and also in Bengal and “tried to stop a secular government.” A section of the crowd began shouting and demanded Khan stop and sit down. “Why didn’t you oppose Jaleel? I too have the right to speak,” Khan said. Gymkhana president Yusuf Abrani pacified the crowd.
