Indian Muslims united against ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’


Jamat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) on Saturday backed the fatwa issued by the Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband against chanting of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” and claimed that “attempts” to connect incantation of the slogan with patriotism for the country was an “extremely wrong” thing.

Terming the fatwa as “correct”, President of the outfit and Islamic scholar Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umri said that it is “not permissible” for Muslims to chant the slogan.

“There are also chants of Bharat Ki Jai which is accepted by all and there is no dispute about it but saying Bharat Mata Ki Jai is not permissible since its against the religion of Muslims.”

Umri also viewed that attempts to connect the chanting of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” slogan with patriotism for the country was an “extremely wrong” thing. The office bearers of the Islamic organisation also charged that the debate over nationalism is being “raked up” by communal and fascist forces to polarise the society and damage the unity and integrity of the country.

Referring to the upcoming Assembly elections in five states, JIH secretary Mohammad Ahmad said that the organisation has decided to support Congress and AIUDF candidates in Assam. “We are supporting Congress as a strategy just to stop fascist forces to coming to power in the state. We are supporting 99 Congress and 14 AIUDF candidates,” he said.

  • nice try chandra but no has that much daring to expel us. india is our country and we love it. no one can force us to say any slogan and neither its mentioned in any constitution. So better keep your emotions (fake patriotism) below the constitution of india. and never ever talk about expelling us from india because there is no point in discusing or arguing over things which can never happen.


  • Muslims (no exceptions) do not deserve to live in India, THEY MUST BE EXPELLED. They can go to Saudi, The gulf or their favourite, the terrorist’s base, the SHIT Pakistan. Thy are reproducing exponentially and for a long time the essence of Bharat Mata has been unceasingly & deliberately been destroyed since the invasion of the Mughals. Hindustan MUST be for HINDUS ONLY now on!
