Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday blamed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for spreading hatred and communal poison against minorities.

Owaisi's statement came hours after an inter-faith couple was allegedly harassed at Lucknow passport office.

 

"Since BJP came to power they have spread hatred and communal poison against minorities, Muslims in particular and Dalits," Owaisi told news agency ANI.

"Things have come to such a stage that government officer has audacity to question an adult's marriage," he added.

Earlier on Thursday, the couple, Tanvi Seth and Mohammad Anas Siddiqui claimed that they were being harassed by an officer at a Lucknow Passport Office, as the former was married to a Muslim and had not changed her name.

The woman, while addressing the media, said that she was being harassed as the officer questioned her marital status, asking her why she had not changed her name.

The woman also asserted that the officer also kept her husband's passport on hold.

In a series of tweets, Seth wrote to External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj and demanded justice.
