All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday also hit out at the Pakistan Prime Minister. Owaisi asked Khan to borrow some leaves of wisdom from India, specifically about "inclusive politics and minority rights."

Taking to Twitter, Owaisi stated, "According to the Pakistani Constitution, only a Muslim is qualified to be President. India has seen multiple Presidents from oppressed communities. It is high time Khan Sahab learns something from us about inclusive politics and minority rights."

Khan on Saturday had said that giving equal rights to the religious minorities is the cornerstone of the vision of Pakistans founding father and that the country will show Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi how to treat these groups, the Express Tribune reported.
