Mumbai : The Shiv Sena slams the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president, Asaduddin Owaisi, to be sent to Pakistan for declining to serenade ‘Bharat mata ki jai’.
Shiv Sena minister Ramdas Kadam raised this demand yesterday, on the sidelines of the Budget Session of the state assembly. “Owaisi doesn’t should stay in India since he doesn’t regard the nation that has given him to such an extent. He ought to go to Pakistan or we will drive him out of this nation,” said Kadam, including that there was no reason for sustaining such ‘green serpents’ in India. “I will request that the CM ask into this,” he said, responding to the discourse Owaisi had made the day before on Sunday.
The BJP also responded quickly and initiated a probe into Owaisi’s Sunday speech at Udgir near Latur.
The AIMIM chief was commenting on the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s demand that every Indian should chant ‘Bharat mata ki jai’. “But I will never say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ because the Indian constitution has not made this slogan mandatory. I will not chant the slogan even if they put a knife to my neck,” Owaisi had declared.
