Chants of ‘Jai Shree Ram’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’ un-graced the Lok Sabha oath-taking ceremony
The Lok Sabha started its new session on 17 June. But the Parliament has become more of a multi-religion chant room. So, as the new members of the legislature took their oath, they added an excerpt of their next five years in the lower house. While the BJP leaders chanted ‘Jai Shree Ram’, the Trinamool Congress leaders countered with ‘Jai Ma Durga’ and ‘Jai Bengal’. The chain reaction just hit off and a united India was divided in the lower house.
India stands divided in the Parliament through its diverse religions
Later, chief of AIMIM, Asaduddin Owaisi felt left behind and thus declared, “Jai Bheem, Jai Meem, Takbeer Allahu Akbar, Jai Hind”.
Isn’t this exactly how they also fought the elections to reach the Lok Sabha? But who knew they could disrespect the Parliament in order to feed their religious cum political motives. The MPs are sending out political signals trying to bring back the method of the British – Divide and Rule.
This chanting of religious slogans is indeed disturbing the democratic air in the Lok Sabha. Moreover, the MPs are expected to fulfill their constitutional responsibility.
