I don’t want Z category security cover, Owaisi tells Lok Sabha

Asaduddin Owaisi

New Delhi:  Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday rejected the Z category security provided to him earlier in the day, a day after shots were fired at his car when he was returning to the national capital after campaigning for the UP Assembly polls in Meerut.

According to the police, two youth have been arrested for their involvement in the firing incident that took place in Kithoudh area in Meerut on Thursday.


“I don’t want Z category security, as I don’t want to lead a life in suffocation as I always want to be with the poor and deprived people of this country and my constituency. I urge the government to work for deradicalising such youth who opened fire on my vehicle on Thursday,” Owaisi said the Lok Sabha on Friday.

Earlier during the Question Hour, Owaisi first thanked Speaker Om Birla for showing concern over Friday’s firing incident and for directing the concerned officials to ensure the safety of a sitting member of the Parliament.

However, Owaisi then declined to accept the Z category security cover ordered by the government for his personal security.

“Who are these youths who have more believe in bullet than ballot? The government should first enquire how did they become so radicalised. I don’t want any security cover from the government. As I had said in 2015, the Home Ministry should form a committee comprising members from all religions to ensure that our youth don’t get radicalised. Through you (the Speaker), I want to tell the government that I don’t want Z category security cover,” Owaisi said.

After Owaisi’s speech, Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal informed the House that the Uttar Pradesh government has taken cognizance of the matter and swung into action.

Two of the accused have already been arrested by the UP police, and the arms used have also been confiscated, Goyal said.– IANS


  1. This religious fanatic has made Muslim life miserable in India. He thinks in the name of Secularism, he can openly hate India, Hindus.

    Muslim Menace is in whole Region especially in Borders Sharing non-Muslim Countries like India, Sri Lanka, China, Myanmar. Only Myanmar and China have been able control Muslim Nuisance.

    If referendum is held today, then overwhelmingly majority of Majority Community will want Muslims be sent to their beloved Pakistan. One way ticket.

    I think Modi and Yogi will not able to tackle Muslim crap, India needs a leadership like Aung San Kyi of Myanmar to handle it.

    What a mess Congress has created. Muslims got their Pakistan, Muslims said they can’t live with Hindus then Why did Congress let Muslims live in India, gave them 4 wives, instant 3 seconds Talaq, Halala Facilities to raise their population just for vote bank politics.

    Now, same Muslim do not even vote for Congress. What a shame..give them another Pakistan?
