Asaduddin Owaisi of the AIMIM raised a fresh controversy with his comment that he would not utter “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” even if threatened with a knife to his throat. This is apparently because Mohan Bhagwat of the RSS called for more utterance of this slogan. He tried to defend his remark by saying that the Constitution doesn’t make it mandatory. But he has been facing severe backlash since then and he was in for some more on Rohit Sardana’s show. He was severely bashed along with Waris Pathan of his party.
