Two AIMIM corporators refuse to rise for Vande Mataram; BJP, Shiv Sena members protest

Mumbai: The controversy over singing the national song refuses to die down as BJP and Shiv Sena members on Saturday created a ruckus after two All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) corporators refused to rise for 'Vande Mataram' during a meeting at Aurangabad Municipal Corporation.

Earlier, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had termed the compulsion of singing Vande Mataram as ‘unconstitutional’.

Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar had said in a statement that all the BMC run schools will have to sing ‘Vande Mataram’ twice a week. The proposal will be sent to the Maharashtra Government for a final approval.

The Madras High Court in July ordered singing of the national song Vande Mataram in all educational institutions at least once in a week.

The court ordered that the song should be sung preferably on Monday or Friday.
