HYDERABAD: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday said that he will continue to oppose anything that is against the Constitution. He was speaking in an interview with a national magazine when he expressed his views on the Supreme court verdict on the Ayodhya issue.

"For me, the Constitution is supreme and it gives me the right to disagree respectfully with any SC judgment. I will oppose anything that is against the Constitution," he said. While demanding the construction of a Masjid in the disputed land, he added that the Muslims in the country fought to ensure their legal rights are realised. "Our fight was not for a piece of land. It was to ensure that my legal rights are realised. The SC [Supreme Court] also ­categorically said that no temple was ­demolished to construct a mosque. I want my masjid back," he said.

According to him, anybody has the democratic right to criticize the court's verdict. He also added that the Muslims in the country felt humiliated through the verdict. Owaisi also went on to accuse all secular parties of cheating the Muslims. "We are being insulted by giving [alternate] land. Don't treat us like us beggars... We are respectable citizens of India. The fight is for legal right," he added.
