The woman, identified as Amulya, took the dias as soon as All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul- Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Owaisi finished his speech and urged the audience to shout slogans of ‘Hindustan Zindabad‘ and ‘Pakistan Zindabad‘ on her command. She went on to adamantly address the gathering on the ‘difference’ between the two slogans but was immediately whisked away by angry organisers and cops.

Taking the mike from her hand, Owaisi immediately expressed his disapproval of Amulya and her sloganeering. ” I condemn this statement. The woman is not associated with us (AIMIM). Our drive is to save India. Humare liye Bharat Zindabad tha, zindabad rahega (For us, India is and will always be Zindabad),” he said in Bengaluru.
A massive commotion marred the rally as the police stepped in to take the woman away.
Reacting to the incident, Karnataka Minister CT Ravi said, “I condemn the incident. The deshdrohis (anti-nationals) should not be pardoned. Sedation charges should be pressed against her.”
