Terming the Women's Reservation Bill as "regressive", Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi today claimed that it was not in the interest of Muslims.

"If the bill is passed then less number of Muslim will be able to come to the House. I would oppose it," AIMIM MP told reporters outside parliament here.

The bill is slated to be introduced in the Rajya Sabha on March 8, the International Women's Day.

Owaisi, however, said "the UPA government has undertaken some good steps for Mulsims like introducing scholarship scheme but the proposed bill is a regressive step by the government."
