PATNA: Two BJP parliamentarians from Bihar, Giriraj Singh and RK Singh, have suggested All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi to leave India if he does not have any love for his country, bitterly reacting to latter remarks that he won’t say “Bharat Mata ki Jai”.
“Owaisi should leave the country if he doesn’t love India,” said Union Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Giriraj Singh. A firebrand BJP leader, Singh represents Nawada in the Lok Sabha.
Another BJP parliamentarian RK Singh too asked AIMIM leader to leave the country. “Why is he living here if he does not love his home country?” asked Singh, former home secretary who represents Ara in the Lok Sabha.
The bitter reactions came after Owaisi was quoted as saying in the media that he won’t utter “Bharat Mata ki Jai’ slogan eve n if you put a knife to my throat”. He also added, “Nowhere in the Constitution it says that one should say Bharat Mata ki Jai”.
Owaisi who is infamous for making controversial remarks was apparently reacting to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s suggestions that the new generation needed to be taught the slogans hailing ‘Mother India’.
