The public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Pune-based social activist Hemant Patil urged the Bombay high court to take legal action against both Mr Owaisi and AIMIM MLA Warris Pathan for refusing to chant Bharat Mata ki jai.But Speaker Sitasaran Sharma, sensing a tussle between the treasury and the Opposition Congress, got up and announced the passing of censure motion unanimously against the AIMIM leader amid chants of Bharat Mata ki jai by members, including Congress’ Patwari and Hardeep Singh Dang.He said that India has loved and respected both “Ram and Rahim” equally, and slammed people sympathising with divisive forces.
Such remarks are anti-national and have the tendency to break the social fabric of the society Car Air Outlet Mould Manufacturers and divide the people on the basis of religion and parochial issues, said Mr Patil, who heads an NGO, Bharat against Corruption..The petition contended that the speeches made by them amounted to spreading communal disharmony and hurting national integrity and unity of the country.
The PIL urged the court to order an inquiry into the speeches made by the duo in the recent past in which they had allegedly showed dishonour to the motherland by such remarks.State legislative affairs minister and BJP leader Narottam Mishra seconded Mr Patwari’s censure motion and condemned Mr Owaisi, saying that such display of anti-national mentality is being noticed since the last one-and-a-half years. Panchayat minister Gopal Bhargava also rose to join in condemning Mr Owaisi and tried to take a dig at the Congress.
Congress member Jitu Patwari brought the censure motion slamming Mr Owaisi during the zero hour of the Budget Session of the MP Assembly underway in Bhopal.AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi faced more heat on Friday for his remark that he won’t chant Bharat Mata ki jai with the Madhya Pradesh Assembly unanimously passing a censure motion against him while a PIL seeking legal action was filed before the Bombay high court.The petition also demanded a ban on AIMIM saying that remarks made by the duo amounted to violation of the People’s Representative Act and were against the basic principles of the Constitution
