Bihar: Worshipping Bharat is against our belief, said Afzal Hussain, a school teacher as he refused to sing Vande Mataram

When the news that a Muslim teacher was asked to sign Vande Mataram spread in the locality, other people from Muslim community came together and a scuffle broke out between the groups.
