Asaduddin Owaisi was elected as a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) in 1994 and 1999. Subsequently, he was elected as an MP in 2004 and 2009. In response to the 2012 Assam violence, he warned that a lack of proper rehabilitation of the Muslim victims may lead to radicalization of the Muslim youth in India. On 20 January 2013, he was remanded to judicial custody for 14 days in a 2005 case, and later shifted to Sangareddy jail. The case related to an MIM protest against the demolition of a mosque for a road-widening project in Medak district, on 16 April 2005 where Police booked him under various charges including criminal intimidation, rioting and promoting enmity between religious groups. Asaduddin Owaisi was given the 2014 Sansad Ratna Award for his distinguished performance in the 15th Lok Sabha.

In March 2013,Asaduddin Owaisi was detained for organising rally without permission and carrying gun without license in Bidar,Karnataka. In January 2014,he urged the Muslims to not watch Salman Khan's film Jai Ho as he praised Narendra Modi. Reacting to this,Salman said that he is half Hindu and half Muslim. So, he has closeness to both the communities.
