Owaisi Encourages Muslim Youth to Participate in Politics and Contest Elections:

AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi encourages Muslim candidates to participate in elections, emphasizing that contesting, even if they don’t win initially, helps them discover their potential. He made these remarks at the launch of a book titled “Absent in Politics and Power: Political Exclusion of Indian Muslims” by retired IPS officer Abdur Rahman.

Owaisi pointed out that Muslim representation in Indian politics has historically been disproportionate to their population. He argued that claims of discrimination starting in 2014 are an attempt to obscure the longstanding issue of underrepresentation. He noted that even before 2014, Muslim political representation faced challenges in various elections, including in 1952, 1954, and during the emergency period.

Currently, he highlighted that only four percent of Members of Parliament are Muslims. Of these, only two MPs won from constituencies with 10 to 15 percent Muslim population, while the rest secured victory in areas with over 30 percent Muslim population, implying that secular parties did not necessarily favor them.
