            You need to understand why muslims are deterred from saying 'Bharat Mataki Jai'. In their religion, it is considered unislamic. The term 'Bharat Mata' is akin to invocation of a goddess. In Islam, muslims are supposed to worship their one god, 'their creator' and no one else. Tell a muslim to say 'Bharat ki Jai' and he will say that in a heartbeat. But saying the that other slogan will not be comforting to many muslims. Not Saying Bharat Mataki Jai doesn't make a muslim less patriotic. In the end, it's about his religious beliefs. I just want to add one more thing i.e. Do not become ignorant of the other party. The moment you become one, only tension will rise.

            Moderate and middle class(very least) muslims are suffering because of some terrorists. They are ghettoised and no admission in schools, no renting of houses, no jobs, no family planning, and living on govt subsidies. What is the message.?
