Responding to his charges, AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi challenged Rizvi to show any Shia or Sunni madrasa where "such teachings" were imparted.

"Wasim Rizvi is the biggest joker, the most opportunistic person," Owaisi said, adding that if he did have such proof he should "show it to the home minister".
