RSS says Owaisi anti-national, BJP’s Shah looks to other factors

New Delhi, March 17 (IANS) As the RSS on Thursday dubbed AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi as anti-national for his refusal to say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’, BJP president Amit Shah said other factors will be taken into account to judge Owaisi’s patriotism.

“Anyone who refuses to say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ is anti-national for us,” Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale said at the India Today conclave here.

Shah also echoed similar sentiments at a subsequent session at the event.

“We will explain the meaning of ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ to Owaisi. Whether he is anti-national or not will be concluded after taking other factors into account,” Shah said.

“Ninety nine percent people in India have no problem saying ‘Bharat mata ki jai’. If you also start considering one percent dissent so seriously, how will the country be run,” the BJP leader said.

Both leaders however were categorical that students who participated in an event on the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus on February 9 were anti-national.

“People who are anti-India are anti-national for us. If a student raises slogans in favour of a criminal who was hanged by our Supreme Court for attacking the temple of democracy, he is anti-national for us,” Hosabale said when asked to comment on the JNU event.

“To commemorate the death anniversary of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru itself is anti-national and seditious,” Shah said.

    Err, Ms Deepika… any subtitles for that in ENGLISH? 🙂

  3. I agree with RSS. At the same time, I also believe that Owaisi and other minority leaders have the right to say anti-national things under free speech. As long as we don’t incite violence or issue a threat, we all have a right to say whatever we want. In fact, issuing a fatwa to behead kamalesha tiwari was far more serious than refusing to sing ‘bharat maata ki jai’. While the later one is purely anti-national, the former one is a clear act of threat to murder an individual. In a true functioning democracy with a good understanding of freedom and free speech, the guy who issued fatwa would have been taken into custody. Then again, India is a third world country run by ‘minority vote bank’ politics where free speech has become blasphemous in the eyes of illiterates who masquerade as leaders and journalists.

    Well, if your Presidential candidate is to be be given his due worth, India is NOT alone! 🙂

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has said the US has now become a “third world country” as compared to infrastructures in Dubai and China, and promised that things would change once he is elected the American president.

    “We have become a third world country, folks!,” Trump, 69, told his supporters at an election rally at Sal Lake City in Utah, which goes to presidential primary elections on Tuesday.

    “If you go to places like Dubai, China, you look at the roads, at the rail roads, they have the bullet trains that go 100s of miles an hour. And if you go to New York, they’re like 100 years ago,” he said.

  5. Joker Praveena Pinto,
    I don’t think you understand the difference between a truly third-world country and theatrics of a presidential candidate from a developed country that you tried to enter decades ago and failed!! When he says ‘we have become a thirdworld country’, it doesn’t mean that Doddanna has turned into a third-world country!! I can see why it is hard for you to understand some of these election season drama by a Presidential candidate who is using shocking language to highlight certain areas of improvement. After all, this is not the first time you fell flat on these semantics!! I remember a ‘chicken biriyaani’ incident where you took several weeks to figure out the implied meaning!! LOL How does Beef Club produce so many geniuses? smiles…

  6. I remember a ‘chicken biriyaani’ incident where you took several weeks to figure out the implied meaning! – Once again.. Murudu Rampa DISPLAYING his colossal ignorance!

    Hahahahha. Joker’ji…. Poor JOKER NEVER got a proper education despite boarding a ‘manji’ to Yumreeka. But then, HOW could he?

    An ‘idiom’ – DEAR Rampa… – such as your dear Abru’s ‘Biryani’ crap – does NOT need to be qualified by solid numbers – like he did! Unless, he is ‘ShakeSpear’ and YOU are the footman/bootman/spearman.. spiderman.. Trumpaman…whateverman!

    Time and again, I have tried to teach you basic stuff. But sigh! You did ‘padhrad’! AND by such an exodus – by maanji – yumreeka’s so called ‘gain’ is India’s BEST gain.
    ಕೂದೊಂಜಿ ರಾಂಪೆ ಪಧ್ರಾಡ್ ಮಲ್ತೆ!

    MORE jokes ya Abru Rampu. I SIMPLY love em.

    And there.. this joker goes on to explain to me about US Prez campaigns.. and the ASSOCIATED tripe and trivia.. the dirt.. the pomp. pomposity! WHAT a bunch of Jokers…. and the Joker Prez who won the Nobel PP for ‘peace’…EVEN before he took up ‘aapiss’… jeez…..his LIVER quails at the thought of setting foot on the ground on the Greater levant. His knows his ‘bappu’ created the mess. He has his minions (apple picking illegal economic vagrants) to be pushed into paying some tax or the other… to put billions of $$ in the ISIL’s hands.

    can he face them? Man… quit joking! It is the holy week for most people.

    However, to me – no difference at all! Get em on ya Rampa. 🙂

    But then, EVEN such basics have to be explained in EXQUISITE detail to you! But then, never mind! I’m a very patient chap! After all, AFTER you started posting your jokes… oops.. I mean, JOKES… i have NO other entertainment besides you.

  7. Joker Praveena Pinto,
    I stopped reading your gibberish after the first line as I find it quite boring. Did you read about fractional reserve banking, petro dollar, NATO and US military bases? During your stay in Saudi, you would have seen how harsh life was for poor immigrants like you while your Arab masters were partying under the protection of ‘Doddanna’. All these things will make sense if you take some time to read about Petro Dollars, NATO and other ‘Big Stick’ policies of Doddanna.
    smiles…

  8. Well ya Rampa.. the ONLY ‘Beeeggggaa stickkkkka’ I know is the one that the chief 9/11 prime suspect and perpetrator shoved up…….. well.. you know where up DoddappaNNA’s south side!

    And hello, pyare Rampa…. you don’t have to bring in your NATO and my neighbors ‘PETO’ when I SPECIFICALLY asked you about the US printing $$ as though it were Toilet paper.

    Abru and Rampa….. good job. 🙂
