A start of twitter war between Owaisi and Himanta Biswa.
“If India does not protect Hindus, then who will protect them? Pakistan?”
“India should protect all Indians, not Hindus…”
The heated debate started on Wednesday between both the leaders. The issue of the debate was the NRC in India’s northeastern state of Assam.
BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma and Assam’s Finance Minister, said that he is disappointed with the last list of NRC. In an interview, he told a TV channel,
“In the process of NRC, many Bangladeshi Hindus who came to India before 1971 were left out of the list because the authority refused to accept their “refugee certificate.”
He also added,
“The Hindu refugees who should have been and are not in the NRC list, the Assam government will help them through the Foreign Tribunal and the Citizenship Amendment Bill.”
The war began when Asaduddin Owaisi shared the video of this TV debate, tweeting,
“It is absolutely clear that in NRM, an attempt is being made to remove Muslims through NRC. Now Himanta Biswa Sarma is saying that Hindus, whatever they may be will be save.”
The Twitter War
There are various tweets where Owaisi and Himanta Biswa argued over the NRC issue.

In the reply Owaisi tweeted,
The war between them did not stop here. Asaduddin Owaisi then tweeted,
“As a country we have welcomed many affiliated communities. They are refugees, not prospective citizens. Religion can never be the basis of citizenship. Our ancestors rejected this idea only then when he made the constitution.”
In response to this tweet, Himanta Biswa Sarma wrote,
Political parties have given different reactions to NRC. This is a political conflict as well and now this war has engaged the entire twitter world.
