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.

A scuffle broke out in Katiyar, Bihar, on 26th January when Afzal Hussain, a school teacher refused to sing Vande Mataram on Republic Day.


He said, “We worship Allah and Vande Mataram means ‘vandana’ (worship) of Bharat which is against our belief. Constitution doesn’t say it is necessary to sing it.” This enraged the people and a scuffle broke out.
