In 2016, the entire country was shocked when a bunch of JNU students came in support of terrorist Afzal Guru chanting Bharat Ki thukde Honge Insha Allah, Insha Allah! They chanted slogans demanding Azadi from India and hailed Pakistan.
But when the entire country questioned them, they claimed it was their freedom of speech and expression. One should wonder in what way chanting slogans against our own country can be regarded Freedom of speech and expression?!
But now the same people want to call those who chant Bharat Mata Ki Jai as communal. The narrative picked up Lok Sabha passed the Triple Talaq Bill yesterday while chanting Bharat Mata Ki Jai slogans which has irked the so called seculars in the country.
Arfa Khanum Sherwani, a so called journalist who works for The Wire,the leftist website, racked the issue of Triple Talaq and Bharat Mata Ki Jai issue and said chanting Bharat Mata Ki Jai was communal and a majoritarian view.
Lok Sabha passes the Triple Talaq Bill with the house chanting
‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’.
And we witnessed a lot of ‘secularism’ talk by the ruling party members including the Law Minister. pic.twitter.com/c3t5e4jmE2

When Twitter users questioned her stance of referring to Bharat Mata ki Jai as communal, she brazenly replied saying, Bharat Mata ki Jai is communal as the idea Bharat Mata is mythological idea of motherland being Devi, a deity. This suits the faith and religious philosophy of majoritarian and not those who believe monotheism,
Yes ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ is communal. Because it forces a certain mythological idea of motherland being a Devi, a deity.
This may suit your faith and religious philosophy but not people who believe in monotheism- one God.
It is clearly a majoritarian slogan. https://t.co/4HNewg0rVu

It's not about Muslim religion prohibiting BMKJ. Unpardonable to forget the use of BMKJ in recent years as a majoritarian stick to beat the minority – I. E innumerable episodes of Muslims thrashed, forced to say BMKJ. Raising BMKJ as TT Bill was passed is the same. @khanumarfa

It was not just her, one more seudo liberal Kavitha Krishnan who is well known for her hate against Hindus aslo said Bharat Mata Ki Jai is used when Muslims are getting thrashed and are forced to say the chant.
The way the so called tolerant brigade and secular brigade is getting perturbed and intimidated because the people of the country are getting more patriotic.
