Two days after the Maharashtra Assembly suspended an AIMIM legislator for refusing to say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, the Madhya Pradesh Assembly on Friday unanimously passed a censure motion against AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi for his remarks.

In the BJP-dominated MP assembly, the motion was moved by Congress legislator Jitu Jirati. Invoking the country’s first PM Jawaharlal Nehru, the Congress MLA condemned Owaisi for his remarks and requested the House to unanimously oppose “such fundamentalism”.

Legislative Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra said such “anti-national mindset” was prevailing in the country for the past one-and-a-half years and referred to the alleged raising of pro-Afzal Guru slogans on the JNU campus. He also sought to ensure the alleged slogans in the censure motion.

Meanwhile, a case has been registered against Owaisi over his refusal to say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. The case was registered by Karimnagar Three Town police in Telangana following a complaint by one Bethi Mahender Reddy.

      Is the communal congress party moving away from his anti-national elements like Owaisi or the congress party being hypocritical on this issue??? Yes, congress party is scaling down its anti-national agenda temporarily just to fool the people of India.

        Mr Owaise should not have taken this personally.. Chaddi Master says a lot, he should have ignored. Fierce politician has bought a bad repute for himself. Jai Hind.

          muslims will never admit it, but they feel closer to stan and other islamic countries than India even if though were born here. They have failed to imilate. This failure exists in many countries apart from India - Myanmar, China, Phillipines, Thailand, Russia, and Europe. The religion itself may be responsible.

            What about those who made an idol of bharat mata. It seems the concept of mother tongue and motherland is alien to some people and they cannot look beyond idols and images. Since they could not come up with anything else they surreptiously depicted bharat mata (mother India/motherland ) as Durga. In a way it is saying that patriotism is only byaccepting hindu diety - Whoa ! It is undermining the consution and it would be better if this was legally thought over rather than emotionally. It is significant since nobody has any reservation with Jai Bharat and Jai hind. Those who force to use the word mata only show that the concept of mothertongue and motherland is alien to them. We are a large democracy and we have to show something logical to the world rather than emotional.
