New Delhi: Controversial All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen Party (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday courted another row when he said that he will not chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ even if his life was at stake. Owaisi's comments came against the backdrop of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat’s suggestion that the new generation needs to be taught to chant slogans hailing 'Mother India'.

“I don’t chant that slogan.What are you going to do, Bhagwat sahab,” Owaisi said, at a public rally in Udgir tehsil of Latur district on Sunday. “I won’t utter that (slogan) even if you put a knife to my throat,” Owaisi said, amid loud applause by the crowd. “Nowhere in the Constitution it says that one should say: Bharat Mata ki Jai,” he said.
On March 3, Bhagwat had said the new generation needs to be taught to chant slogans hailing mother India, comments which came against the backdrop of the row over alleged anti-India sloganeering on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus. “Now the time has come when we have to tell the new generation to chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ (hail mother India). It should be real, spontaneous and part of all-round development of the youth,” the RSS chief had said.
Owaisi also said he will “continue to support” the family of Ishrat Jahan.

OwaISI won't say Bharath Matha Ki Jai

Mr. OwISI is "correct" in refusing to say "Bharath Matha Ki Jai, coz. If NOT his mother, obviously, he is of foreign origin and gene is of Mogul invaders. At least Mr. OwaISI is up front, unlike other Muslim leaders, with similar gene, in Congress, JD(U) and TMC refuse to admit their gene and consequently allegiance to clan with similar genes. Native Indians, be it Hindus, Muslims and Christians, will be tooooo pleased to chant "Bharath Matha Ki Jai". For native Indians, religion is only "Choice" to attain solace. On passing of every atom of a second, native Indians of any and all religion, have started "chanting", Bharath Matha Ki Jai, in which voice of these minuscule segment of people with foreign / invader gene, will NOT be heard and /or affect the moment of nationalism. Incidentally, please ask Mr. C.R. Kesavan, to go through history, as to what Congress & Indira Ghandy did to Chakravarthy Rajagopalachri (alias) Rajaji, that forced him to start "Swathanthra Party". After that and provided politics is NOT his "profession", one should expect him NOT to represent Congress, under Indira Ghandy's clan (or) at least NOT to support Congress to hilt, with his brazen voice !!
