After the incident the speaker of the house Meira Kumar got angry and said."One honourable member walked out when Vande Mataram was being played. I take very serious view of this. I would want to know why this was done. This should never happen again," she said.
After the incident the Hindu majority media started accusing Shafiqur Rahman Barq of insulting the national song.
Then Shafiqur Rahman Barq came out and in an interview to CNN IBN, like a true Muslim tiger Barq said he is not sorry for what he did as he has not done anything wrong.
"I won't apologise to anyone. I respect the National Anthem, not the national song Vande Mataram. Vande Mataram is an ode to motherland. Muslims like me bend only before Allah, not before any other god".
"I request that Muslims not be compelled to sing this song since it is against the Sharia.. the song tells people to bow before Bharat Mata,” he said.
“India is a democracy, there is secularism here. Under secularism when there are 30 crore Muslims living in the country you have to be considerate towards their emotions as well,” Burq said.
Now it is true that a Muslim cannot bend in front of Bharat mata or worship her as this song suggests, a Muslim can only bend in front of Allah and no one else.
The supreme court has clearly said if Muslims don't want to follow this song as it hurts their religious sentiments then they are free to not sing this song and no one can force them
If Indian supreme court has no problem then why media is so angered by this.
See the reaction of Hindu media
Discussion on it by media good to see Muslim participants supporting Shafiqur Rahman Barq.
This song is a hymn to bharat mata and and Muslims cannot bend in from of any so called imaginary mata. Allah is the only truth and Islam the true religion and Muslims cannot follow false gods. A Muslim only bends in front of Allah. Shafiqur Rahman Barq is following true Islamic beliefs and he did nothing wrong. Any Muslim having basic knowledge will not stand up for the Vande Matram as is like bhoomi pooja and we pray only Allah.
