Secularism the Indian way;BSP MP Insults National Song in Lok Sabha.

published on May 9, 2013
Shafiqur Rahman Barq, a BSP member from Sambhal in Uttar Pradesh, was seen walking out of the lower house as Vande Mataram was being played before the house was adjourned sine die. The act has created an uproar amongst the opposition demanding for action to be taken against him.

He defended his act in a TV interview and said that he isn’t even sorry for his act and he feels he hasn’t done anything wrong. The Muslim MP said, “I won’t apologise to anyone. I respect the National Anthem, not the national song Vande Mataram. Vande Mataram is an ode to motherland. Muslims like me bend only before Allah, not before any other god.”

The speaker of the house Meira Kumar demnded for an explanation and asserted that such blatant disrespect for the National song should not be repeated.
