Bharat Mata Ki Jay

By Cifarshayar @cifarshayar

Bharat Mata Ki Jay
Now 'Us versus Them' debate took a new turn with 'Bharat Mata Ki Jay' slogan. The controversy this time created by AIMIM chief and MP from Hyderabad Asaduddin Owaisi and with suspension of Waris Pathan an MLA of AIMIM from Maharashtra Assembly for not chanting this slogan the issue has taken an ugly turn. 
I find nothing wrong in saying Bharat Mata Ki Jay which means Long Live Mother India and I also find nothing wrong if someone wants to say 'Jai Hind', 'Jai Bharat', 'India is Great', 'Hindustan Zindabad' etc instead of Bharat Mata Ki Jay because phrases doesn't define patriotism feelings does. A woman is respectful in all forms and not only as mother similarly are all other slogans equally respectable as Bharat Mata Ki Jay. Do other nations in the world which don't give a face to their motherland or which don't depict her as goddess loves their country less than us?  By relating her to Hinduism we are only sidelining all other communities as outsiders who need to follow this concept to prove adherence to their country. 
We all know elections in five state assemblies are round the corner. Attempts are made to polarize the voters. BJP by commenting and reacting on Owaisi is helping in two way polarization to get benefit in coming polls. Chanting this slogan is not a life or death issue for Muslims, they are from years chanting this slogan without feeling offended. Even Vande Mataram is comfortable with millions of Muslims it becomes problem when someone force you to say this or try to make it a compulsion to affirm your identity as an Indian. 
India is a multicultural country and constitution guarantees all their identity as a person and as a community no one is entitled to challenge it. We as Indians must not give these political parties opportunities to use us for their political gain and for Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi I have a suggestion to keep your views to yourself and not impose on all Muslims. Islam promotes love for motherland and if a slogan shows my love for my country I have no shame in saying it. I will end this post by repeating words from Javed Akhtar's Sahab's farewell speech that it is not my choice but my right to say 'Bharat Mata Ki Jay'. Jai Hind. God Bless India.
