NEW DELHI: Shiv Sena threatened Muslim leader Asaduddin Owaisi to quit from India for not chanting ‘Bharat mata ki jai’.
Sena minister Ramdas Kadam said “Owaisi doesn’t deserve to stay in India because he does not respect the country that has given him so much. He should go to Pakistan or we will drive him out of this country.”
The AIMIM chief Owaisi refused to chant that slogan on the previous day.
He said “I will never say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ because the Indian constitution has not made this slogan mandatory. I will not chant the slogan even if they put a knife to my neck.”
Owaisi also claimed to defend LeT operative Ishrat Jahan and claimed to support Muslim families whose sons have been killed in the terror activities in Maharashtra.
AIMIM leaders condemned Shiv Sena’s act and claimed that the controversial statement is a political advantage.
