In a tweet on Sunday, Owaisi said Khan should instead take a lesson from India's inclusive politics and minority right.

Member of Parliament and AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi took to Twitter to hit out at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan over the latter's remark that he would show the Narendra Modi government "how to treat minorities".

In a tweet on Sunday, Owaisi said Khan should instead take a lesson from India's inclusive politics and minority right.

"According to the Pakistani Constitution, only a Muslim is qualified to be President. India has seen multiple Presidents from oppressed communities. It's high time Khan sahab learns something from us about inclusive politics & minority rights," the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief said.
