Special Online Discussion on – ‘How long will singing Vande Mataram be opposed ?’
Greetings on the 75th Anniversary of our Independence
Mumbai – “Vande Mataram was first opposed by Muslims in 1909. These people partitioned India in 1947. Vande Mataram is India’s cultural heritage. It should be honoured by every single citizen of our country. Else, the opponents do not have the right to claim that they are citizens of this country. Vande Mataram is a song that praises the Motherland Bharat (India), and those who oppose this song do not want to honour the Motherland. Opposition to Vande Mataram is opposition to the Nation. There should be an appropriate law to honour Vande Mataram”, said Adv. Umesh Sharma (practising in the Supreme Court) while speaking on an Special Online Discussion on – ‘How long will singing Vande Mataram be opposed ?’
Mr Rakesh Datta Mishra (Secretary General of Bharatiya Janakranti Dal in Bihar) said, “Vande Mataram generates an intense feeling of pride for the Nation. Only those who do not have any regard for the Nation can oppose this song. The relevant authorities should pass a law by which the citizenship of those who do not honour the National Song and the Nation should be cancelled and action should be initiated against them. And, if they hold posts such as MLA, MP, etc. should be immediately withdrawn”.
Mr Abhay Vartak (Dharmapracharak of Sanatan Sanstha) said, “During their rule, the British banned singing of Vande Mataram; yet, our revolutionaries sacrificed their lives for the Nation and went to the gallows singing Vande Mataram. The opponents of Vande Mataram are speaking the language of the British. Vande Mataram should be given the status of the National Anthem in the Constitution of India and a position that no one will dare oppose in future”.
Our revolutionaries went to the gallows singing Vande Mataram. Its opponents are speaking the language of the British !
