During a heated debate on the BJP's stand to make singing of Vande Mataram mandatory in schools, the party spokesperson was challenged to sing the national song himself. At least he tried.

It doesn’t get more ironical than this. As the BJP pushes for singing Vande Mataram mandatory in schools, its own spokesperson was cornered during a heated debate on a news channel. Navin Kumar Singh was sparring words with Mufti Ejaz Arshad Qasmi of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board on the issue, when the latter challenged him to sing the national song right then.

After an initial bout of hesitation, Singh – pumped with nationalist fervour – agreed on condition that Qasmi would accompany him in the duet. The BJP leader then went on to carefully attempt singing/reading the lyrics of the song from his phone – only to get most of it terribly wrong, much to the amusement of the AIMPLB member as well as people online.

Watch the video here.

As it happens, this wasn’t the first time a BJP member got the words to Vande Mataram wrong. Previously, during another television show, UP’s minorities welfare MoS Baldev Singh Aulakh was unable to sing the song as well. On both instances, the leaders were massively trolled on social media.

    Kya aadmi hai yaar. It's clear that he doesn't know Vandemaataram. Vusko sirf bla bla bla karna aatha hai. Paagal Aadmi hai kya? poora desh dhek raha hai iska drama. Either you sing or agree that you don't know... Why to rub fake patriotism on people. patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel... Samuel Johnson.

        Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires, they worship demigods" (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7, Verse 20)"God is one and only, not a second" (Chandogya Upanishad, Chapter 6, Section 2, Verse 1)"Of him (God), there is no parents, no Lord" (Svetasvatara Upanishad, Chapter 6, Verse 9) !! vedas says "na astha pratima wasthi" that of God there is no image or Idol or any form?If you read true old testaments in Christianity also there is written no idol or image worshiping is permitted.. Our politicians are using innocent people to follow hatred based religion ideology which is no where in holy Scriptures eg: - temples, idols, ram jaanmabhomi, sandhya, Gurus, Babas, etc. This is nothing but instigating poison in the innocent people's mind.Start reading and following your own Scriptures at least follow their is only one God with no Idol before death arrives.Only true religion is ISLAM ,understand islam ,not via fake books,or post.Read Quran before commenting.

          Ignorance thy name is BJP - after all, they mix up Takshila and Nalanda (when trying to praise Bihar !), they mix up Maurya and Gupta dynasty, they mix up between Shyamji Krishna Verma and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, they mix up between Pound and Dollar etc.

            This is the whole point. Nehru, Sunni Muslims, and Catholic Christians with Communists joined hands and wiped out Vande Mataram from our text books, from our history. Today we dont know what it is, we cannot even sing but we do know that Nehru's clothes were dry cleaned in Paris. This is the history we are told. We are told that Nehru was Chacha but never told that he was also the biggest ninicom-p person who only induged in having fun with white women including married white people and was never Indian in the first place. It was Nehru that we still have muslims in India even when we gave them the land and money to separate from us. So what logic is this that we give 33 percent of our land to 20 percent of population in 1947, remaining 4 percent again multiplies like pigs to 20 percent today and we are ready for another division by sunni muslims?
