Muslim municipal councilor abuses Hindu deities in house: Denies to apologize

Posted on 20 September, 2006
There was once again a commotion in the Municipal Corporation Hall over 'Vande Mataram'. The councilors from the ruling party Shiv Sena and BJP were enraged over derogatory comments passed by a lady Muslim councilor about Hindu deities. The lady councilor was 'gheraoed' and slogans were raised against her that she should apologize for her comments. The atmosphere in the hall heated up. Finally the Mayor warned her on behalf of all members. Therefore, she withdrew her comments. In the last meeting held by Municipal Corporation, Muslim councilors as also councilors belonging to parties like Congress and Samajawadi party expressed their strong opposition to 'Vande Mataram'. The leader of the House said that why Congress should oppose 'Vande Mataram' when earlier the party had accepted it as a national song. The lady councilor, in question, recited a 'sher' which ridiculed Hindu deities. Finally, she did not apologize but just took back her words.
