FW: [The Powerup India Group] 'Vande Mataram'


In Non Of the Nation in the World this is allowed.
Why VHP or a or some person should opposed this the whole India (all Indians) should opposed this.
Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar  has very cleverly and say smartly taken back his hand. We can judge the meaning of his answer.
Some body (Indian Electronic Media...?) has to ask about this issue all party leaders including Prime Minister and Sonia & Rahul Gandhi and Muslim leaders to give their opinion.
The Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind issued a fatwa (a decree), asking its community members not to sing the song 'Vande Mataram'. Two days on, and the incident has snowballed into a political row. While the Hindu group VHP has come down heavily on the diktat, other politicians and public figures have had they say too. Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar has played down the issue, saying that the controversy is old and obsolete.

But could not the controversy have been avoided? In a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural nation as ours, can we not agree to respect a few national symbols? Or does being called a secular nation mean making decisions based on religion?
