Everyone was waiting for the perfect reply to Owasis’s comment on ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and it was none other than Javed Akhtar who hitted on Owasis and did it in style. Poet-lyricist Javed Akhtar was on song when he turned a farewell speech to colleagues in Rajya Sabha to a hard hitting one on criticism of those who feel ‘ashamed’ of saying ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. With apparently Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi in his crosshairs, he asked the “mohalla leader from Hyderabad” if the argument against shouting the slogan is that the Constitution does not stipulate it, the same can be applied to the sherwani. “Does Constitution stipulate that one should wear sherwani?” he asked.
