The entire debate going on saying ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ is the talk of the town these days. Bharat Mata Ki Jai means Hail motherland India so looking at the translation of the phrase it is not religion specific by any stretch of imagination. Mohan Bhagwat the RSS chief said in the context of what happened in JNU that a good habit should be developed by asking people to say this phrase which is ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. The interesting part is the Asaduddin Owaisi reacted to it in no time by saying that he will never say this phrase. He was correct on his part nobody in this free country can force you to say anything but what was wrong is in the way he said it, what he said is that ‘Even if someone puts a knife on his neck then also he will not say ‘ Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. Owaisi using such aggressive and language only suggest one thing that he is looking to cash on this no issue and divide people. Asaduddin Owaisi has this Vacuous assumption that he represents Muslims and I would like to enlighten all my Muslims brothers then when was the last time Owaisi spoke so aggressively and passionately about the unemployment of Muslims in India. When was the last time he spoke about Muslim Women given Equal rights. Owaisi is under the impression that his aggressive speech will get him votes but he is completely wrong.
The day Mohan Bhagwat or any RSS leader will start giving certificate of patriotism, I am afraid how many people will want those certificates. The crux of the matter is the nobody can define or give a general definition of patriotism. Chanting a phrase cannot make anyone a patriot. Just Imagine a situation if Vijay Maliya says ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, does that make him a Patriot?, It doesn’t because merely chanting a phrase doesn’t define patriotism it is much larger than that. A true Patriot respects the constitution which says you should respect all Religion.
Patriotism is about respecting the country and loving your fellow countrymen. A true Patriot never divides people on religion basis and never indulge in Hate Speech. Javed Akhtar Said in parliament that there should be no shame in saying ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai, he was absolutely correct and when he said on the path to development its your choice what issues you concentrate on. Indian People must understand that these politician cannot do development that’s why they keep you busy with these non issues. We must understand Owaisi is not the face of every Muslim and Bhagwat is not the face of every Hindu. While they are trying to create issue out of non-issue and at the same time somewhere in army both Hindu and Muslim are together enjoying a Drink and laughing at this non-issue. When Politicians Create these issues just ignore them ask them questions on development, they will automatically disappear .
