The winter session of the Bihar Legislative Assembly ended with a lot of heat. On the last day of the session, a ruckus broke out when AIMIM MLA and party's state president Akhtarul Islam refused to sing the national song Vande Mataram. He said that it has been imposed by the Speaker of the Assembly and it is not necessary in the Constitution to do so, so we will not sing it. BJP has attacked him for this statement of his.

What did MLA Akhtarul Islam say

For the first time this happened, were our ancestors who were not knowledgeable, were they not patriotic? There would be a greater patriot than him who sacrificed his life and liberated the country. By living in jails, the country was liberated by eating the sticks of the British. Is the national song written today? I am saying that the traditions which belong to our elders, those traditions should be maintained. Why singing is necessary, it is not necessary. Things that are not necessary without reason should not be called essential. I am saying that I have no objection to sing the national song, but singing Vande Mataram is not according to our faith.

BJP MLAs strongly objected to this act

BJP MLAs strongly objected to this act of AIMIM MLA. BJP MLA Sanjay Singh said, 'He should go to the country whose national song he likes. Take out the footage inside the house, they were also standing in respect of the national song, but it is in their nature to come out and create controversy. I say that the national anthem and the national song are mandatory for every person living inside this country and those who do not like it should go to the place whose national anthem and national song they like.
