Bharat Mata Ki Jai: Waris Pathan from AIMIM Suspended

in Politics by

Waris Pathan believes in loyalty to his political boss, the boss who is responsible for handing over tickets, and the person who can possibly elevate him politically.

Wait, this party which we are talking about is only Hyderabad specific, as quoted by Javed Akhtar, it’s a Mohalla party. So, the elevation would be towards the general secretary of this Mohalla party?

Anyway, little did Waris know that he would be kicked out of the Maharashtra assembly for toeing the line of Osaduddin Owaisi.

Politicians from all other parties, spoke in one voice to suspend Waris from the assembly. The speaker acted on the motion, and this necessarily puts him out of mantralaya and he will not be even allowed to get into the premises.

Waris Pathan had said – “We will say ‘Jai Hind’ but not ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and there cannot be any compulsion.”

To this, MLAs from across the parties unanimously opposed the MLA from AIMIM and demanded an apology. Soon, the demand turned into suspension, which was acceded.

I am happy to note that parties with ideological differences came together when our motherland is facing its worst crisis with people opposing the very spirit she represents. The topic of prasing Bharat mata has revealed the true colors of politicians who are basically wolves in sheep clothing.

Thank you Mohan Bhagwat for raising the slogan, and the need for India to chant it. And to Javed Akhtar for that wonderful retirement speech which shook the curbed patriotic cymbals in us.

Shameless Osaduddin Owaisi Says He Will Never Say Bharat Mata Ki Jai

in Opinion/Politics by

At a public rally in Latur district of Maharashtra, Osaduddin Owaisi of AIMIM party has proclaimed that he will never say bharat mata ki jai, even if a knife is held to his neck.

His comment was in response to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s call to introduce pro-India chants in schools.

Bhagwat made the suggestions in the backdrop of anti-national activities in JNU and other campuses across the country. Imbibing the spirit of nationality must start at an early age, to prevent them going rogue against the nation in their youth, was the crux of the message.

Owaisi’s objection to the suggestion is disgusting. Especially, when a lawmaker makes such comments. If there is no spirit of nationality with the lawmaker’s, then what are they protecting by going to the parliament? Are they protecting their self interests and those who share their beliefs?

I strongly believe that nationality should be central to everybody who wishes to associate themselves with citizenship in India. The suggestion is just an expression which will help young minds orient in the right direction, and help them to become able and responsible citizens, and not end up like Kanhaiyas and Anirbans of JNU.

Owaisi’s justification was that bharat mata ki jai is not part of the constitution, so he is not liable to chanting the slogan. So, then, it is time to get it included and corner those who oppose nationality.
