Last year in August 2021, AIMIM chief Owaisi hit out at reservations keeping out Dalit Muslims and Dalit Christians. The nature of that bill led Asaduddin Owaisi, President of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen to express how it infringes on the rights of Article 15 and Article 16 which addresses equality of opportunity for all citizens in matters of employment under the State. No citizen shall, on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, descent, place of birth, or any of them, be ineligible for any office under the State.
