MIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday said that Dr BR Ambedkar was conferred with the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, out of obligation and not from the heart. Speaking at an event in Kalyan in Maharashtra, Owaisi said, “Tell me, out of the total Bharat Ratna awards given, how many were Dalit, Adivasi, Muslim, poor, upper caste and Brahmin?”. The Hyderabad MP further stated that Babasaheb (Ambedkar) was given Bharat Ratna out of compulsion and not by heart.
