Madhavi Lata raised questions on Owaisi's statement

On AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi's alleged comment praising the beef owner, BJP's Lok Sabha candidate Madhavi Lata said, "I don't understand how Asaduddin Owaisi became a barrister. He keeps talking about personal law.”

He said, as per personal law, ''Fatwa' is something that everyone should follow... When there is a fatwa that beef should not be consumed, how is he going against the fatwa? It means that he Don't respect your religion…this is life.

He said, “You are asking for votes on this?… They should talk about getting education and becoming something for the country… What is the point of cutting beef?”
